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

    Pros

    Some of the benefits of a large corporation (401K, training etc)

    Cons

    A lot of politics
    Low salaries
    Bad location and ugly office space
    A lot of running around chasing the next student intake and no real strategy

    I have been working at Ross University full-time

    Pros

    There are no pros. For profit that steals money from students. Unable to manage students. They don't care about employees either. The island is horrible.

    Cons

    Horrible ethics. Treats students like crap. Doesn't pay enough. Island is horrible. Lots of red tape and beurocracy. Too much student debt.

    Advice to Management

    Hire smart employees. Most employees are young fresh graduates with little experience. Quick and rapid turnover so students get the short end of the stick. They don't have solid advisors or people who have knowledge of medical education.

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

    Pros

    Great sense of family, cross-training, and flexibility. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Worked there a very long time. Involved in many projects outside my scope. Took on many new responsibilities. Couldn't even get a title change after 5 years. If you are there for 5 years, expect to be only making about 3k more than your starting salary. Management full of empty promises.

    No opportunity for career advancement. The re-organization of the company has put incompetent people into the management staff. I guess this is why recently they have been having a high turnover rate. I mean Ross University to DeVry Medical Int., DeVry Education Group, and probably a recent name change again. Something is going on.

    Advice to Management

    Take a better look at proven experience vs the talkers.

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

    Pros

    The benefits are OK and a few good folks work there

    Cons

    - High school bullying and racism tolerated
    - No room for advancement unless you're a member of the "clique"
    - Most of management can barely write an email, as such if you're highly educated, outspoken and smart; you'll be vilified
    - Don't think about job enrichment, most roles involve very mundane "busy-work" and you dare not try to operate outside of your scope or go above & beyond; it'll be deemed as "you're trying to take over"

    ***Only work here if you're looking for something temporarily and extremely desperate for employment***

    Advice to Management

    Please hire competent management or at least provide some soft skills/professionalism training. It is an embarrassment to have these people lead a medical institution!!

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

    Pros

    Work life balance, benefits, good coworkers, fair reimbursements

    Cons

    Opportunities for growth, poor communication, naive upper level management

    Advice to Management

    Once upon a time Ross University was an excellent place to work, but with much employee relocation, poor communication from the higher ups, little to no room for growth, and a growing "corporate" environment, the university I was once proud to represent has gone the way of other for profit schools. I find myself making phone calls to prospective students, sending an enormous amount of emails, and trying to "sell" the university rather than speak as an admissions professional.

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits
    Excellent experience working with students and other departments
    HR is super responsive and they care about their employees

    Cons

    A lot of turn over created chaos in terms of filling positions. At times they would.hire people just to get the job filled even if they weren't the best candidate for the job.
    Getting island crazy is a real thing

    Advice to Management

    Advicate for more direct flights on/off the island
    Bring back free transport to the airport
    Have more selective hiring practices rather than anxiously filling positions with less than ideal candidates
