No Raises over Past 5 years but increased volumes of workload
Finance Manager (Former Employee), San Francisco, CAFebruary 14, 2015
Pros: students provide an uplifting envirorment
Cons: top management has no leadership, no raises over past 5 years to any staff, no performance evaluations so you never know what your boss thinks of your work.
University was a Non-Profit and has just changed over to a For-Profit Benefits Corporation. Terrible Leadership by Management over past 5 years. Business Strategy negligible, with no regard for Business Processes implementation.

HR has done no Performance Appraisals in past 3 years, so no accountability for anyone.

All the best people are leaving, and very little replacement hiring being done, so all the people left on-board must pick up the slack with no raises.

Management totally against Telecommuting and provide no work/life balance. Restructures, Reorganizations, and Layoffs done with no regard for employee compassion or empathy.

Educational Development
Student Affairs Representative (Former Employee), San Diego, CAAugust 8, 2014
Hardest part of the job is dealing with the lack of honesty, transparency and cross-cultural competence. Focus on tuition increases rather than supporting the academic needs, development and retention of students and marginalized staff development.

Receptionist (Former Employee), San Diego, CAFebruary 25, 2014
Pros: benefits, holiday parties, staff appreciation day, commencements
Cons: communication
Monitored incoming calls to the university, transfered calls to staff, faculty or department, greeted students, prospective students and vistors. I learned alot about higher education and enjoyed working at the university. Worked with wonderful people who also were great team-players. I always felt rewarded when I would help out a student with a problem even more so if they were an international student.

student services (Former Employee), Los Angeles Campus, Alhambra, CAMay 23, 2013
Pros: the students were great and deserved better
Cons: the administration was terrible.creating a very toxic environment for all but the management lackeys
This was a very toxic environment in which to work. I can't find anything positive to say about the management at the Los Angeles campus. There was a great deal of cliquishness, back-stabbing, deceitfulness, manipulation of others, etc. It negatively impacted student services. While there was a reorg last year and many staff let go, it appears to simply have intensified the "in-crowd, it's all about me" management of the campus where the students were not a priority. Those who were "liked" by the person above and willing to behave according to a managers bidding no matter how unethical, were the ones retained.

I was there for a total of 18 years and enjoyed every minute of it. I loved working with the students and all of my colleagues. I had been laid off in 2000 and was asked in 2004 to come back to turn the place around and did so.

Director - Academic Support Center (Current Employee), San Diego, CAJune 15, 2012
Pros: great students, staff and faculty
Cons: our department is understaffed, but funding is always an issue around here, but i guess it is like that everywhere.
Small private non-profit university serving around 3500 students on six campuses who are mostly graduate students with four different schools: Psychology, Forensic Psychology, Business and Education. A "diverse by design" school with around a third of all students are international. Personally, I have found that this place to be fascinating!

Going through a reorganization
Temporary Records Specialist (Current Employee), San Diego, CAMay 23, 2012
In Alliant's attempt to reorganize and grow they are making a lot of changes right now. The current culture is one of uncertainty. There is a lot of miscommunication between departments. Hopefully all of that will change within the next year as these changes are implemented.
