    I worked at Keiser University part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great salary with small class sizes as an Adjunct Instructor. The staff was friendly and I really liked my dean.

    Cons

    Irregularity in class scheduling. The courses are taught on a weird wheel schedule, so you teach for 4 months and then there are no classes for 3 months and then you teach again for 2 months.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Keiser University full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of positive support for students

    Cons

    Local management often cited the excuse for changing policy and rules was in order to avoid "exposure" to bad press or warranted lawsuits. District management often did not follow governing body accreditation standards with regard to changing procedures for the entire school system.

    Advice to Management

    What you permit, you promote. Changing the rules in order to benefit one person often offends many others. Apply rulings without favoritism.

    I have been working at Keiser University full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Faculty are upbeat, positive and professional. They do care about the students. Salaries are very good.

    Cons

    President with an open door philosophy who's door is always closed. Nothing gets done on the campus without the approval of the campus president. Upper and middle management are hostile, bullying,belittling and totally ineffective. The president doesn't want to remove ineffectual managers as it would be embarrassing. I should have guessed that there were going to be problems when they couldn't decide what job I was applying for!

    Advice to Management

    Need effective new employee training. Pinch the pennies on trivial things that cost employee time and then there is strong pressure to produce quickly without effective training. It is a losing situation. Most Faculty remain because they need the employment and they are dedicated to the students.
