    I have been working at Rasmussen College part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Being a peer tutor not only helps other students, it helps the tutor themselves. Tutoring offers a flexible work schedule that understands education comes first. It helps tutors grow in their personal development, such as expanding on communication skills, time management skills, self reflection, as well as build a deeper understanding of the topics covered. The teams are wonderful and incredibly supportive, as are the managers. Your work feels truly appreciated.

    Cons

    It is work study, so the highest number of hours you can get a week are 29. There is also a two week period between semesters where you won't receive work/pay.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing - management is wonderful and makes the tutors feel appreciated.

    I have been working at Rasmussen College full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Fast paced, nice and friendly people, great benefits (several weeks vacation, paid holidays, 401K, partially paid maternity leave), flexible schedule (most managers/positions)

    Cons

    Little professional development. Instead of preparing their current employees for advancement they hire externally and therefore employees that have been with the organization for many years find it hard to advance. It is easy to get burnt out... if you give them an inch, they will take a mile. Pay structure is not organized; employees with the same title could have 20K+ difference in salary.

    Advice to Management

    Train and educate your committed employees with proven longevity. Focus on organizational behavior: many individuals become unmotivated due to lack of recognition or lack of opportunity to advance. Stop giving out huge bonuses to your executives and pay your people - how many of your employees have second jobs?

    Pros

    Pay is great for the job and you get plenty of training opportunities

    Cons

    Moved a lot of departments to central location, which took ability to transfer departments away unless you want to relocate. No promotional opportunities either (just job title changes)

    I have been working at Rasmussen College full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits, flexibility for faculty, 2 weeks off at Christmas -1 week off between terms.

    Cons

    Salary.... it's low for the expectations and at a 1 to 2 % increase per year - if you are "exceeding" expectations, it's HARD to every really increase your salary to the value you provide - especially since their "Meeting expectations" are well above peer college's expectations.

    Advice to Management

    Put more value in your faculty who have been through all the roller coaster rides that have happened over the last 15 years. Offer more incentives with salary increases more than 1 to 2% a year even if you are busting your behind.

    Pros

    Sick days. You can take paid sick days. That’s the only good thing about working here.

    Cons

    - they only care about money
    - undervalue employees, treated like pawns
    - micromanaging
    - no teamwork
    - degree mill, they don’t value education. They refer themselves as a company in the office, but a “college” when creditors are present.

    Advice to Management

    Employee directors that have educational backgrounds.

    "Adjunct"

    I have been working at Rasmussen College part-time

    Pros

    Teaching is online and flexible.

    Cons

    Pay is extremely low. They pay $1600 for 5 week class, and they expect you to devote 10-15 hours a week, but they require unpaid training. An adjunct will make $30 an hour at a minimum, probably less. My goal is to do as little as possible; otherwise, I am working for minimum wage.

    Advice to Management

    Pay a competitive wage.

    Pros

    Great people and teams. Truly passionate about what they do.

    At times lack of clarity and communication.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more with employees at front-line.
