    I have been working at Keiser University full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Helping people find their path is rewarding.

    Cons

    Management would rather use scare tactics and emotional abuse than lead with anything silly like encouragement or motivation. Work like a slave, never question anyone's decision, and be micromanaged like you're an idiot (took a 16 min break instead of a 15 min break? You're getting a write up). Please don't mistake this for bitterness. This is truth. I work her because I have people to support and just haven't found a...

    I worked at Keiser University full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - free health insurance after 3 years - EASY job no matter what department you work in. Admissions seems to be the only one that requires some micromanaging but other departments are very relaxed - Quiet and beautiful campus - you can take many breaks. People take smoke breaks all the time or just breaks to go talk to your coworkers - depending on the department, you can go the whole day minding your business and...

    Cons

    If you enjoy career advancement and want to grow in a professional way, then this place is NOT for you. There is absolutely no career advancement. Transferring to another department is the most "common" move, but any type of movement here is rare. This is a major disadvantage if you are young and looking to grow. Since it's a small private location, gossiping is at an all time high here. Its ridiculous! Gossiping...

    I worked at Keiser University full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good pay, that's it, but at least five words are required in this category to post.

    Cons

    Incredibly toxic work environment, high turnover of employees, mental and verbal abuse by superiors, no HR on site to assist, any HR complaints were sent to immediate supervisor prior to being sent to HR so any complaints about supervisory styles were never sent on, the director of admissions was caught adjusting time clocks so employees would not accumulate overtime and is still in his position, the school buys student...

    I have been working at Keiser University full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The money is great and some of the people I work with are awesome.

    Cons

    The boss is a tyrant you work 6 days a week every week for 2 months (august and September) he will lie in the interview and only give you one day to process everything and join in. He pushes numbers, get people into college! And if you're not getting those numbers YOU are the problem. If you report up too many do not contacts you get in trouble. The company is messed up.

    Advice to Management

    If you want this to be a call center that's fine, but don't lie to people about what they're getting into.

    Pros

    Faculty in my department were great to work with. Strong curriculum. Make sure curriculum & policies are consistent campus to campus so you get the same quality education regardless of the campus location.

    Cons

    Make salaried employes clock in and out with a handprint. Micromanagers. Most of the deans and campus presidents only have a masters, they should have a doctorate.
