    I worked at American Public University System full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great people to work with, and company has strong values/mission. Benefits are very solid.

    Cons

    Lack of professional development opportunities that lead to career advancement

    Advice to Management

    Proactively develop/promote people, and offer more flexibility such as remote work, flex time, etc. Make better/more consistent/not reactive efforts to seek out retain/recognize employees.

    Over the past few years, turnover has increased which makes the job more difficult with the constant need to interview/hire/train new colleagues. By making perks: starting pay/remote work opportunities consistent between all departments, the university would see better retention and job satisfaction, and an overall student experience.
