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

    Pros

    At Post University, you're not just an "employee" you become part of a family.Yes, we do have new employees starting every two weeks because we are growing. Students everywhere are realizing that Post University is dedicated to putting their students first. I was a student at Post before I became an employee. The amount of support, encouragement, dedication and the positive attitude each employee had is what made me apply at Post University. Working here has made me realize you can have it all - I work full time, go to school full time and have three kids. I have never felt more supported academically as well as within my career, than I do now. Thank you Post for being the rock star that you are!

    Cons

    There are no cons about Post University.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work! I have the most AMAZING Assistant Director and wouldn't change her for the world!

    I have been working at Post University full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    As a somewhat new staff member, I was impressed with the environment and the people I met. Everyone seemed to be centered on the "mission" of providing service both to me as a new hire and to the students. In my area, we received some detailed training and tools to help get oriented and feel comfortable with what I was supposed to do. My team mates were also supportive, helping me learn more quickly. I felt comfortable early on.

    Cons

    Lots of work. This is not a slow paced place; fun but fast. Not a typical "university" environment.

    I worked at Post University full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Decent pay, more professional then waiting tables. Overall advice: STAY AWAY.

    I worked as a telemarketer, I mean, admission counselor and I had to hound the same people everyday about getting an online education.

    Cons

    Telemarking call-center, Favoritism, high turnover and big egos.

    I worked at Post for less then a year. In that time they had at least 5 rounds of "new hires" start after me. They also made it a habit to fire one person every week. The work environment was very "cat-y" and certain team leads and reps formed alliances to protect their positions. Also, they made it a habit not to be up front about a lot of details about the position and the company.

    Advice to Management

    Tell people the truth about what they are getting into

    I worked at Post University (More than a year)

    Pros

    There aren't many pros to working here. The job itself is interesting and the benefits are comparable to other full-time jobs; nothing over the top.

    Cons

    The university is an awful place to work. Management in not competent and human resources does nothing to handle any issues that arise during employment. The university does not care about its employees and has a poor company culture. The job itself was great, but this was by far the worst organization I have ever worked for.

    I worked at Post University full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good health benefits, and paid-time off.

    Cons

    Post is a For-Profit institution and lives up to the stigma. Executive management are buffoons. The pay is laughable. They promise raises constantly but never follow through. They didn't turn a profit in 2015 and are scrambling to save the school. No job security. Outdated systems and procedures. Poor resources for employees to do their jobs well.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees better. Change the business model, For-Profit schools are falling by the wayside and Post is on that current track.

    I worked at Post University part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    If your looking for a place where you can get experience and a wide range of opportunity, Post should be on your list. At Post being a student and part time employee made for a ver enriching experience that went beyond what I would have anticipated before starting at Post.

    Cons

    With new leadership and a change in climate and culture really shifted where the vision was headed with my time at Post. When I had left the campus new CEO was in charge with an entire new hire for the department I was working in. Things have taken a huge turn for the better.

    I have been working at Post University full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very supportive of students and their needs; home to very satisfied students and alumni.
    An open and transparent culture of 'can-do' dedicated faculty and staff.
    Flat management organization; poised for continued growth.

    Cons

    The small family-type campus appeals to many students, yet it could be a drawback to many others.
    Labeled as a 'for-profit' institution (which one is for-loss?!), may heart Post competitively, regardless of the fact that quality-wise Post is as good or better than any comparable size institution ('for-profit' or 'not-for-profit')

    Advice to Management

    Brand Post University as an example of well-managed, profitable and growing academic institution.
    Highlight our emphasis on caring about and supporting our students over anything else.
    Continue to improve our student-centered processes.
    Invest more in alumni relationship and partnerships on educational goals.

    I worked at Post University full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Self managing, create your own schedule, benefits, good pay, some people who work there are very nice, office/cubicle type work, semi-relaxed environment (because you mostly work alone)

    Cons

    Need to be willing to say anything to prospective students, feels like you are taking advantage of people who don't know whats going on, turnover rate is extremely high, receiving calls from individuals who have been on the phone being passed around that have just been looking for a job

    Advice to Management

    Stop calling very old leads, better training, stop letting management or team leads hang out with their employees because it creates an uncomfortable work environment where there are clearly picked favorites
