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

    Pros

    I have worked at 2 campuses. Each campus had a great team. There was so much potential in each department. Great co-workers.

    Cons

    Corporate management didn't seem to know what they were doing, which greatly affected us at the campus levels. Each decision by management brought down morale. They thought they were doing better but in reality they were putting salt on old (and new) wounds.

    Advice to Management

    Do all of your research before making a corporate decision that affects us all, don't just think about the dollar signs.

    I have been working at Westwood College part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Teaching the students was the best part. The reward of teaching the students helped make this a nice place to work.

    Cons

    The red tape of the administration. The college was more concerned about administrative issues and complying with corporate requirements than teaching the students.
