    I have been working at Rasmussen College full-time

    Pros

    Generous PTO and sick time! Accommodating and understanding for employees with children and "personal life events". Always on the cutting edge of educational trends and continuously making improvements. I work with a wonderful team of people.

    Office with out a window. Sometimes have to work evenings and weekends.

    An option to have a stand up desk would be nice because we do sit all day long.

    Rasmussen College is a leader in education that puts a strong focus on their commitment to students. I have enjoyed making professional relationships, that will last a lifetime.

    I have been working at Rasmussen College full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I have worked at Rasmussen College over 5 years. The company has always been a change agent because the industry goes through many changes. I am proud to work for a company that offers different and innovative options in education that gives students an opportunity to save money. Flex choice was a great concept and the feedback from students has been very positive. I believe in education and have seen many students graduate and obtain careers with great companies and they would have never had the qualifications without the degree. Most students appreciate the support we offer but they are the ones held accountable to do the work. I love my job and especially the people I work with.

    Cons

    If you don't like change or can't adapt to change, then this is not the place for you. Many times they roll out changes that are not thought through and the employees have to deal with it. I don't think employees mind change as much as they don't like change that does not go smoothly.

    Advice to Management

    Try to think changes through more clearly and involve employees on the front line to help think through changes so things roll out clearly. In the last few years you are getting a little better at this.
