Company Culture

None. Management has little regard or time for anyone beneath them.

Support from management

They are often far too busy surfing the dating sites or social media to really help someone. Or too busy plotting a way to make money off a student once they graduate.

Teamwork

None. You will be expected to do your job and pick up all the slack from other deparments and if you dont do it correctly you will be total you are terrible at your job.. Including Retentions (look forward to calling students on your 10 min lunch break). Admissions (look forward to having to email potential students). Cleaning (dont forget to clean your room and floors because we cant afford cleaning and so forth.

Freedom to work independently

Welcome to Micro-Managment 101. You will be required to email every detail of why you couldnt finish the list of things you are required to do most of which have to be done on your lunch break or in between class breaks or 30 mins after. Most of which will take 1-2 hours minimum to complete

Internal Communication

None. You are told not to bother management with your issues.

Career Development

None.

Overall compensation for your work

Poor.

Office / Work Environment

Dirty, filthy, and scary. No security. Fight breaks out and you are on your own... hope you brought your can of pepper spray..

Work-Life Balance

None. If you teach you will be expected to do both your job and the program directors job to develop the courses on your own time (not paid). Also look forward to those campus meeting and events you are required to attend oh ya for no pay once again. Fun times.

Company Image

Poor. Google them to find out.

Job Security

None. You only know the last day or two before the next semester if you will have a job or not. So imagine every 10 weeks you wont know until the last minute what you will be doing for the 10 weeks....

Workplace Safety

Very unsafe. Dont get hurt you will never see a nickel from them and they more than likely will fire you and figure out a way to make it your fault. If you fall off a ladder you are fired before you hit the ground.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Fire existing management and get rid of the criminal with his name on the side of the music campus for one.

What I like about the company

I dont have to work there anymore.

What I dislike about the company

Every detail about it.

Company Culture

It was supposed to change for the better, but it did not.

Suggestions for improvement

  • More autonomy for instructors and managers; change management style from one of intimidation to one of working together; ditch the micromanagement; hold corporate employees responsible for their actions instead of blaming those under them.

What I like about the company

The compensation was good and the personal relationship with staff, faculty, and students were very good.

What I dislike about the company

There was intensive micromanagement by the corporate office. Also, the new campus director was a type x manager who thought that management by intimidation was an effective method of management. I did not agree.
