My company offers 100% paid tuition for Masters programs at either Capella or Strayer university. I would get my MS in Human Resources. When recruiting, do you value degrees from these online schools as much as you would for other colleges? I don’t want to waste my time if so.

    Pros

    Great coworkers and lead instructor. Flexibility if you work on a good team. Work from home or wherever else there is Wi-Fi.

    Cons

    Extremely low pay and increasing faculty expectations You are an instructor, but you're paid like you're are a tutor. Rules are constantly changing. A lot of students need remedial education before they can complete assignments. Upper management is a joke-A bunch of clueless folks making out of touch decisions.
