    I have been working at Neumont College of Computer Science full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Neumont strives to give it's students the ability to adapt and learn. Students are given real life experience in the field and graduate within 3 years allowing them to get in and out.

    Cons

    Scheduling can be ugly and ridiculous. I sometimes have quarters where I spend 12~ hours in the building. It's culture is "Geed centered" meaning most students don't have the best hygiene.

    Advice to Management

    Fix the Schedules. pls.

      I worked at Neumont College of Computer Science part-time for less than a year

      Pros

      The senior faculty is amazing. As an academic coach, you work directly under your professor, and you work very closely with them to guide students not just to learn the subjects, but to be interested in the subjects so they do their own research. As a student myself, I had to go to coaches, and when I helped a student, it made me feel as if I was continuing the legacy of my predecessors.

      Cons

      I went above and beyond my duties, staying late, reaching out to struggling students, offering extensive feedback on assignments, grading mountains of work, and I got amazing reviews. I did not feel like I was rewarded for any of that. I didn't get a raise or a bonus, all I asked for was a nice company polo so I could feel like a part of the team, and I couldn't even get that when almost every other student position...

      Advice to Management

      Allow coaches and instructors to design strategies on a class by class bases. Every group of students needs a different solution, and there is no one size fits all. Also academic coaches are import, we are the first line of defense from keeping students from leaving, but it doesn't seem like management is interested in appreciating coaches as much as they appreciate the more outward facing student employees.

      I worked at Neumont College of Computer Science full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      I really enjoy teaching and helping students learn. The school location is convenient/close to trax station. Administrative staff is extremely supportive. I am passionate about computer science, so while I was there, I really loved the teaching part of my job.

      Cons

      The chief academic officer of the school is the reason I stopped teaching at Neumont. He is a former programmer that got a masters and doctorate through online degree mills. He makes promises that he has no intention of keeping, does not support his faculty, and takes credit for the accomplishment of others. Hands down, he was the worst boss I've ever worked with. Complete disaster of a manager.

      Advice to Management

      Make a change in the chief academic officer position. Fill it with someone that understands education, has experience, and legitimate degrees. Don't allow your middle managers to make promises to instructors that are unrealistic, and if they do lie to their subordinates about benefits, they should have consequences.

      Pros

      Neumont is like a family, if you do your best and are up front with management, they will bend over backwards to be understanding of any situation that arises. They truly care about the students who attend the school and their well being. I hear nothing but positive comments from the current students regarding their experiences at Neumont. Neumont provides both staff and students with a TRAX pass, which helps immensely...

      Cons

      The high tuition costs drive away many students, which is too bad.

        Good staff that is willing to help students and make their futures as bright as possible.

        Cons

        The good staff are leaving and the new marketing techniques are going to bring the School's reputation down.

        Advice to Management

        Listen to your Instructors and their suggestions

        Pros

        The original founders had great ideas. Too bad they were never realized.

        Cons

        Neumont is accredited by ACICS. ACICS is no longer recognized as an approved accrediting agency by the US Dept. of Education.

        Advice to Management

        Teach 'em out and close it up. You should have gone to regional accreditation when you opened the doors many years ago.
