Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
the upper management is lack of strategic consideration and has serious politics. They are not doing education but running a profit business. It may be good for you to start your career and accumulate some industry experience.

Pros

maybe good for inexperienced fresh graduates

Cons

avoid working there

I love working at Yorkville University

Working at Yorkville University has been an amazing experience. There is a very supportive and friendly work environment throughout all three campuses. All management, faculty, and staff are encouraging and willing to learn new things and/or teach you new things. I absolutely recommend applying!

Many teachers coming and going.

High turnover of teaching staff. It seems as if new people are added every term. Students are the same as community college students in Ontario. After a while it becomes easier, once you realize that many other teachers do not fully read what students give them, and students only care that they not fail

Stressful

Good opportunity for someone who is a sales person. Can get very stressful to manage work and life.Fast paced and lot of things to do. Good commissions but need to do a lot to get them.

Not the best place to work

Little to no room for advancement. The company should invest in people not just the high ups. Poorly organized and managed. Mostly international students. Poor retention rate. Dumb managers.

Pros

Work life balance

Cons

Low pay

I enjoy working at Yorkville University. I feel valued and respected. I am on a series of 3-month contracts. There are many foreign students.

This is the best job I have ever had. I find it to be challenging but rewarding financially and intellectually. It is a new university and has growing pains but rapid growth. My boss is friendly and we use technology to the fullest.

Pros

Room for creativity and good use of technology

Cons

Sudden changes to work circumstances and last-minute changes.
Was this review helpful?

Poorly managed with a senior leadership that includes a Senior VP with no marketing experience or related academic credentials in marketing.

Not the kind of company skilled and qualified professionals should be associated with. A company should put in place leadership that is actually qualified.

Pros

Can’t think on any.

Cons

Too many to list.

Would not recommend unless you are applying for a management role

Advisors do most of the work yet they make the least amount of money. Little to no opportunity for advancement or internal promotion. Supervisors and managers are dismissive and don't take suggestions well

Pros

Great co-workers

Cons

No pay increase for advisors
Was this review helpful?

Great coworkers but weak leadership

There is a lack of trust as management says all the right things but does not act on it. Poor management causes employees to quit by a high-stress environment and poor training. Management is not willing to increase the salary of the employees and would rather let them go than increase the pay. NO professional growth in the company, management is not letting you grow within a company. The company doesn't have an annual performance review - employees don't have a chance to negotiate their salary or any kind of working conditions. (tricky contract - be careful, nothing can be changed after singing it) You can get an extra week of vacation only after 5 years of working within a company - rediculous

Pros

flexibility

Cons

Management, benefits & salary

Toxic environment

Disorganized Unhealthy environment Terrible or no training Toxic people Unprofessional management and upper management Unfair treatment with employees Much favouritism
Was this review helpful?

University is growing but they don't care about old employers

Poor salary and benefits. Management people are the worst. Work ethics zero. Company politics at its worst! Supervisors are unhelpful. Older employees get less salary than the newer one in the same role! How ridiculous! Growing opportunity is too low.

Pros

Wfh

Cons

No overtime pay but you'll have to work 9 hours a day

Toxic Work Environment

Management expects staff to go beyond their job description by a mile. Management rather let go of staff than increase their pay or position title after years of extensive service. Management expects to continuously work overtime without pay or time in lieu. The staff is wonderful is upside but management drains you, burns you out and then is passive aggressive when you mention the issues and says “then you should leave”.

Pros

Staff connections

Cons

Management

Professional and friendly work environment

The company has a very supportive management team with family-like work culture. Onboarding included a training program which was really useful. It is easy to meet and communicate with management. Classrooms are good and well-equipt.
