    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Stevens-Henager College full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great starting pay for new admissions people, fairly flexible schedule, free tuition after 1 year

    Cons

    No pay raises, inconsistent management, faculty needs some work

    Advice to Management

    Have yearly reviews for employees with the potential for raises. Without them, people don't feel motivated to improve. Spend more time and money on improving the faculty.

    I have been working at Stevens-Henager College full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    You get to work with a student population that really needs the training and skills offered at the college. You get to see people's lives change for the better. Campus employees form a close-knit community.

    Cons

    You get to work with a student demographic that needs a lot more help with academics, interpersonal skills, and life management skills than traditional students. Each campus has a very different work environment from others, depending entirely on the campus leadership. Some are very positive and others bordering on abusive.

    Advice to Management

    Keep an eye on local campus leaders. They vary widely in terms of management skill, cultural sensitivity, and treatment of employees.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Stevens-Henager College full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Teaching and sharing my experiences with adult learners who are motivated to learn a new skill and re-enter the workforce with a skill that is in demand in their industry.

    Cons

    High tuition costs for students entering the workforce at an entry level position. It will take them decades to pay off their debt at the rate they are being compensated for the education.

    Advice to Management

    Pre-screen applicants to careers that they are most appropriate to the industry. Have guidance counselors available to discuss varied opportunities in education.

    I have been working at Stevens-Henager College part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Many jobs can be done remotely from home. In my experience, they promote from within. My immediate supervisor is fantastic

    Cons

    Communication throughout all departments is lacking. The do not give regular compensation increases for employees who work hard. It is an open-enrollment school so, sometimes, students who should not be in college levels classes are recruited.

    Advice to Management

    You should consider compensating employees who work to keep students going as well as you compensate the recruiters who enroll the students.

    I have been working at Stevens-Henager College part-time

    Pros

    This college accepts many students that would otherwise not be prepared to attend college. The assistant Deans and Instructors go out of their way to help and encourage the students to succeed. They prepare students to get a job in today's market without the time involved in doing fluff courses ( GE). The comradery between employees is excellent and this is a wonderful work environment .

    Cons

    Pay to adjunct instructors is not the best. To work here you must have a love of teaching and helping others succeed . It is hard to become a full-time faculty instructor since enrollment determines need.

    Advice to Management

    Many staff and faculty state "they have not had a raise in over 7 years." This is concerning the Murray Campus. Please show that you appreciate your staff/faculty that provide an excellent education for the students, and don't forget your adjunct instructors as well.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Stevens-Henager College full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I meet some great people working there. I was able to see a positive change in many of the students lives (I worked as an admissions consultant in the on-line division.)

    Cons

    The company, however, is a boiler room. It is not, as they maintain, "all about the students" it is all about how many people you sign up for on-line college. they don't care, at the admissions management level, if the student will stay enrolled, or has the skills and abilities to succeed in college, only that they stay enrolled for at least 2 weeks.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to care about your employees, drop the political indoctrination, drop the pressure-cooker tactics.
