    Pros

    Great people to work with, great students, great location, fun job, community focus, I loved the small class size - it allowed me to teach by experience and discussion rather than lecture. This is much better for students.

    Cons

    Adjuncts are paid per class for the assigned contact hours (hours in the classroom). There is no pay for prep time, required meetings, required training, etc. With all of the requirements plus the class I taught, I made less than minimum wage.

    Advice to Management

    Pay the people who are with the students for the value they bring rather than paying for massive amounts of marketing and real estate.

    Pros

    I worked at the Lakeville campus just part time adjunct and it was one of the most positive work environments I have had. Nice people, high standards, and they really cared about the students. Just worked there one semester - it was a good side adjunct job. They have asked me back but I travel in the summer - hope to return next year.

    Cons

    None I can think of

    Pros

    Most of the staff was excellent

    Cons

    The company is in trouble, and corporate doesn't know how to handle it. Everyone is taking on too many responsibilities and afraid to lose their jobs.

    I worked at Minnesota School of Business full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Coworkers were wonderful! Liked working with the students to make their educational dreams come true! Education benefit was excellent, free classes, just pay for books.

    Cons

    Upper level management was horrible, they were a bunch of wolves caring only about themselves. The upper level managers that did care were run out or laid off/fired.

    Advice to Management

    Work-life balance was ok for the most part. They did not have extra hours that were mandatory to work.

    Company values were a sketchy, it is a family owned/run company, and you can really tell by who is in the upper positions. It was a real compliment if you got hired and didn't know or were related to anyone in the company.

    Pros

    If you are looking for a cheaper way to go to school.
    Love teaching and helping students grow.

    Cons

    There is too many loopholes and minor management that interfere with getting certain tasks done in a timely manner. Budget cuts are not handled well due to poor communication.

    I worked at Minnesota School of Business full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    All in all, the employees were great to work with. Some campus facilities were far nicer than others, if possible work for a newer campus.

    Cons

    Time off was not great, long hours for some positions. Lack of support for teaching, students can be difficult to work with due to lack of education or training. Difficult for employers to want to hire students,

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time on talent development and appreciation of staff.
