    I have been working at Park University for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great benefits. Good hours. Higher level administration is really trying to make Park U a great place to work. Amazing vacation/holidays/sick time. Loved my immediate staff and direct supervisor was fair and very good to work with.

    Cons

    Micro-management, high pressure to increase enrollments with small marketing budget. Salaries are lower than average. Not a lot of room to move up within the university. As staff left, positions were not filled, still expected to increase enrollments with less staff.
