    I worked at Neumont University full-time (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.

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

    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 with the commute to downtown SLC.

    Cons

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

    I have been working at Neumont University part-time

    Pros

    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.

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

    Pros

    Lots of material to learn, loved the teaching, classrooms were nice, curriculum was very organized and planned out. I became a much better teacher because I spent so much time in the classroom.

    Cons

    Extremely political environment in the academics department. School is owned by investors that are hyper-focused on making a profit over providing a solid education. My position was eliminated so they could hire on more part-time faculty at a lower pay rate. Worked out ok because I was already fed up and looking. The Dean of Academics was particularly unqualified and difficult to work with. He basically sat in his office and watched sports on his computer all day.

    Advice to Management

    Don't make your instructors teach in the classroom 35 hours a week. Remember you are a school, and the students come first. If you provide a good education to students, you will be successful. Don't be so profit driven.

    No faculty positions have been eliminated in the past 3 years. Instead, with the growth of our institution, we have had to add additional full-time positions. Neumont does make use of Adjunct... More

    Pros

    The community and work environment is fantastic. I worked with a great set of individuals, and it's really fun working with students in the housing program.

    Cons

    There were days and duties that I did not expect would take up all of my weekend once in a while. Moving furniture gets tiresome after a few hours, and the organization of housing move in activities can be frustrating.

    Great students, great mission, dedicated faculty and staff.

    Cons

    Small school so you must wear a lot of hats. This is mostly good and creates some great learning opportunities, but it also creates stressful situations when.
