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

    Pros

    I'm working here thinking it would be a positive and fun environment where we would genuinely work as a team to help students succeed. I genuinely care about students and their well-being, especially employees who may seek more guidance on the job however...

    Cons

    I'd advise not to work here. The job description is misleading. The supervisors are discriminatory against your disability and accommodations. They will fire you if you disclose- please don't support this! You have to be liked by the supervisor and there is fakeness and lies. Don't work here if you genuinely care about making a difference for students and their success.

    Advice to Management

    Please be open and honest to your potential employees. You hire "new student advisors" to help students and make it personal with your new motto this year. Please fulfill your intention. Be honest and take off the hidden agenda that you created for this university where instead students can go to learn and seek guidance with no judgements. Tell them how it's mainly and only about the retention and university profit. It would save employees alot of hassle with what they are truly looking for in a job and career path especially if they seek minor accommodations. Be sensitive. Please make sure this doesn't happen in the future and be careful with the reasoning for your termination procedures. I don't want this to happen to anyone else because this is unfair.

    Pros

    Fantastic laid back environment. Decent pay. Great office culture.

    Cons

    Absolutely ridiculous sales practices (except that you're not allowed to call it "sales" by law, in the education industry), and goals that are just plain not attainable. Take it if you're okay squeezing it all out for a couple years.

    Advice to Management

    Actually give your students a decent education that your staff can sell, because right now, you're pretty much the McDonalds of "higher education."

    Pros

    I love my job because no day is ever the same. Each day I am presented with new challenges and situations which really helps me to stay focused and interested. The people and organizational culture are outstanding and the growth opportunities to learn and make a positive impact in the lives of others happen on a daily basis. I also enjoy being able to be creative and innovative in my job when working to find solutions to difficult problems. I feel the work I do every day makes a difference to the people we serve while also ensuring that they will have a degree that will help them succeed at their career. I know when I go home that I truly did something meaningful and important at the end of the say. I know that the University acts with high morals and integrity and cares about each student as a person. I am proud of the program and curriculum which I have helped to build and know that my coworkers are passionate about what they do.

    Cons

    We are growing fast and could use more space.

    I feel very valued, administration is communicative, decision-making is rational, easy to find support and answers.

    Cons

    Few opportunities for advancement to full-time employment.

    Offer more full-time faculty positions instead of hiring so many part-time associates.

    Pros

    No pros to add at this time.

    Cons

    As a former manager, I have sat in countless HR meetings where the VP and CEO told us to have our staff write positive reviews on this site. Plenty of times, we were told to do it during company time. They are desperate to fluff up their terrible portrayal in the education market as a school and an employer. If your looking for work or an education, your better off going elsewhere. Don't let the fake positive reviews fool you. This place looks bad on a resume for work and a degree.

    Beautiful campus in New England.

    Management constantly changes expectations.
    Students are not prepared to take classes but Post takes thier tuition dollars anyway.
    When applying for other teaching jobs other colleges do not take the experience at Post seriously.
