    Pros

    Pay, co-workers, students and clean campus. Worked during the worse years of the recession when classes were packed. It was fast paced and fun.

    Cons

    Management can be tough. Telling instructors how to teach minute by minute. Admissions letting in people that aren't serious about the program and then being held accountable for their success.

    Advice to Management

    Actually do the things you say you'll do on Presidents' Day meeting. Let the people work. And listen to the faculty.

    Pros

    I begin my second month of teaching Speech Communications, which I enjoy, thoroughly. The students are motivated. The only have to concentrate on this subject for one month. I am motivated to make them the best speakers they can be.

    Cons

    So far, no complaints. My commute is long right now from Fort Lauderdale but it's only for three days a week and that will change in 2017.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    I worked at Southeastern College full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The work does not come home with you becasue of confidentiality reasons. Its a good foot in the door to sales and learning to deal with rejection repeatedly. Minor automony with scheduling your work day.

    Cons

    Everything. You live in a cubicle and make phone calls to people who did not request information. The pay and hours are awful and 6 day work weeks are no fun. It all starts out rosy and goes down hill from there. Communication with management is horrid and turnover is exteremely high due to poor training and high expectations amongst other things. No room for promotion or pay raise.

    Advice to Management

    communicate with your employees and treat them like intelligent adults. An improvement plan with someone who wants to win could do the department wonders instead of firing and re-hiring and hoping to hit targets.

    Pros

    Students, academic freedom to a degree

    Cons

    Micromanaged, not enough classes, not enough money for your degree or experience

    Advice to Management

    Raise the rate per class, stop micromanaging your instructors, create possible full time work for gen Ed instructors

    Pros

    I loved spending time with the students and getting to know them. The teachers there are really sweet and great to talk too. They were really there for the students.

    Cons

    This place is under horrible management. The constantly through admissions staff under the bus to save their own jobs. They were extremely rude and disrespectful. I would never work there again.

    Advice to Management

    You should never use other staffs shortcoming for training, such as, training a new admissions staff member with a phone call made by a member that was still present on the team. It unprofessional and disrespectful.

    I have been working at Southeastern College full-time

    Pros

    Great co-workers, diversity. Tuition reimbursement if you expect to be here two more years after graduation. Great students.

    Cons

    Small campus, ancient computers, no office space for instructor or program coordinators. No room for professional growth. If you are ambitious in life and want to keep growing, this is not the place. If you love to be in your comfort zone and do the job to keep also your managers in their comfort zone, then this is definitely the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Take more risks, appreciate the talent. Improve your leadership qualities.

    I worked at Southeastern College part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    A respectable open-enrollment institution. Has grown much over the years. Honestly and always trying to improve in the face of stiff competition. Has potential. Paychecks always on time.

    Cons

    Erratic, at times ill considered replacement of staff and instructors has too often diminished the quality of SU's education and culture, as stated by students to replaced teachers. Most complaints and occasional disaffection reflect constructive attempts to help, not to tear down. Persons in positions of authority should listen more, and fear less.

    Advice to Management

    Might wish to introduce differentiated pay for quality instructors. Quality is not easily replaceable and market pricing has its downside, as it does not reflect quality, only the numbers game. Might try compacting ten-week terms into one-month intensives, as does some of the competition.
