    Pros

    The best thing about working here is the people. This organization is built by a professional and diverse team of individuals who sincerely care about the institutional mission and goals by ensuring to promote "social change." Work life was simple and balanced. Although it was a stressful and fast paced work environment, it was still manageable. Time off was easy to request, even if it was the same day. Work and lunch schedules were flexible. The benefits package was more than satisfactory by offering HMO's, PPO, dental, vision, 401K, paid time off, vacation, bereavement, FSA, and tuition discounts of 70% off for employees and 25% off for immediate family members.

    Cons

    Quality leads were hard to come by. Marketing at times utilized poor lead generators and the statistics communicated to us were less than convincing on how leads convert to enrollment. Management lacked training and support from higher leadership in Baltimore. Information cascading from leadership seemed under researched and vague. Executives and their advisors struggled to establish organizational culture. The organization offered very little to zero growth opportunities. Empathy and quality communication could have at least been rehearsed when announcing our office closure. About 100 employees found out that they were without a job the very same day due to operation costs and the communication could have been more tactful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would behoove management to first and foremost establish a quality organizational culture that radiates a sincere care for their employees, students, and communities. Restructure the chain of command. Too many chiefs and not enough indians. Seek new methods to motivate your people, especially managers. Give them the tools to be efficient leaders so that they may lead by example and offer expertise to their enrollment advisors. Establish an effective compensation system regarding CRD (employee self evaluation). The employee self evaluation system is rather tedious and redundant. Employees are measured on a thin margin only to receive a minuscule increase, percentage, or no increase at all. Burn out occurs all to frequently and it is recommended that new strategies and attempts to build morale be sought.
