Job Culture
Many co-workers from associated departments were supportive and friendly. Benefits were good. However, salary was less than that of a brick and mortar school having similar roles.

Parking available. Hours were standard 8, but they provide an hour lunch in addition to the 8 hours and two 15 minute breaks - bringing your day to a long 9.5 hrs long. They did not allow for many exceptions to hours or breaks at all.


Promotions often went to those who were able to network the best, have personally relationships with management, especially upper management, despite lacking key traits of the roles they were promoted too. In some instances, friends hired friends to report directly under them. Also, after years of obvious friendships in and out of the workplace, when people were promoted, friends were not placed under new Directors or Managers. Nepotism, seemed common place.


Sadly, they rarely promoted within unless the person is seen to be a "people pleaser" and have little to no life "obstacles" (i.e. family, children, medical issues). Many people who were qualified and loyal to the company did not get advancement as they should have.


Training during fast-paced times like enrollment periods and course start left little time for training new hires or learning newly implemented methods or practices.


Working here would be ideal for someone who may want to get experience in the field for a couple of years to be able to transition to a traditional college or university school role in administration, advising, or managing.


Tuition reimbursement available for courses/programs

Job Culture
The employees were very nice to work with and they had great benefits. Unfortunately, the culture was not very good. Management is not well suited for their position and does not understand people, which contributed to the negative culture.
Pros
Great Health Benefits
Cons
Culture Not Good

Anywhere is better than here. There is no support. There is no leadership. The culture is toxic. The best part of the day is the end of the day. The hardest part of the day is getting out of bed to go to this place.

Management
Job Culture
This company has a good benefit plan, but could do a lot more to recognize and promote internal talent. They often hire from outside of the company, rather than promote talented/tenured members.

This company has very high turnover and has lost some of its best talent due to its failure to promote and support employees in taking the next step in their careers.


Also, management often uses strange/shady pressure tactics. Better training is needed.
Pros
Good benefit plan
Cons
Lack of recognition, does not promote from within, shady pressure tactics
