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

    Pros

    Decent Coffee, Good Co-Workers, Some Nice benefits

    Cons

    Strict policies in place towards employees regarding sick time and leave, Predatory work environment, Predatory For-Profit college, Lied about valuing education

    Advice to Management

    Start actually valuing your employees and education and tackle the issues. Stop lying about your non profit status as well and making yourself out to be the best of the best. Most importantly do not enforce the fake praise and joy that exists there. Everyone can see the lie for what it is.

    Just don't lie about what you are.

    Advice to Management

    I've never worked with such unsympathetic and insensitive management in my life. The manager and supervisors want you to be a robot and genuinely do not care for the employees in any way.

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

    Pros

    I actually have worked for SHC/CEHE for over 5 years. I work for the online division - Independence University - and have loved every second of it. The company is great with recognition of employees doing well or employees who improve over time. Lower management is very uplifting and motivating when they see someone struggling. Team moral within the admissions department is amazing. Pay is fantastic, and ability to work from home is awesome. As a whole, the company does everything they can to boost moral and keep spirits up during busy/stressful times.

    Cons

    Upper management sometimes uses scare tactics to motivate employees, and more often than not it doesn't work. It just deflates those of us who are lower level employees, and I'd say 8/10 times, the employee ends up either quitting or being let go because the tactic doesn't work and they don't get motivated to improve.

    Advice to Management

    To Upper Management: Don't use scare tactics to motivate employees. It doesn't work, and leaves lower level employees feeling deflated and unappreciated. Keep motivating by recognizing those performing well and uplifting those who could use a boost. It has worked really well to motivate me for over 5 years!

    Pros

    The students wanted to better themselves and that is the only thing that made the job enjoyable.

    Cons

    Overworked, under appreciated and really just not a great company since it was for profit and didn't really have the students in mind.

    Pros

    Good salary for minimal experience

    Cons

    Unorganized management. If someone leaves, they don't hire other people. They divide job duties between other employees so everyone is doing 3 or 4 jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Hire enough staff.

    I worked at Stevens-Henager College full-time

    Pros

    Co-workers are top-notch teachers and professionals.

    Cons

    Management lacks vision and honesty with students. It's all about doing the bare minimum to qualify for federal aid to the students. When a student gets in trouble, their bottom line is more important than the students' financial future. Consider carefully before you get involved.
