Was a fun place to work before business climate change
Director & Corp Mgr Financial Aid; HR Lead (Former Employee) – Woodbury, MN – January 17, 2018
The company has experienced an unfortunate legal action which as reduced the number of campuses from 29 to 6, thereby reducing the work force from over 700 to just over 150. A precise example of government over reaching their authority causing an extreme hardship for many employees and their families.
However the management has tried hard to keep afloat but needed to reduce their workforce accordingly.
flexible hours, doughnut Fridays and nice people
No raises for over 5 years due to business downturn
I worked in the umbrellas Globe/Broadview Cosmetology school. My school manager was amazing, however the director was not in the state of understanding concerns, problems, and ALWAYS was on the students side. More concerned about quantity then quality of students . Kept instructors under FT so not to give benefits or paid time off. Pay the instructors so bad that there is a massive turnover to seasoned instructors who had worked for them for a long time, because of lack of pay increases. The director is more worried about appearances rather then the legit running of the school. So fake.

Globe was definitely not a place I was proud to say I worked. They are now Broadview University, hoping the general public won't realize that it's always been essentially the same company owned by the same people with the same programs. "Leadership" was a joke and as a general rule they couldn't be trusted. They'd tell you what you wanted to hear, but then the truth was quite the opposite. They'd put a target on your back if they decided they didn't like you, and everyone with a target was gone within a year. Even when the campus was young, the turnover was CRAZY.
Full-time Student, Veterinary Technician Program (Former Employee) – Onalaska, WI – June 11, 2017
I have had the opportunity to work with numerous technicians over the years that attended other universities. I have discovered that I received an education at Globe that was more hands on and advanced than programs around the country.
I enjoyed working for Broadview University and would work there again if the opportunity arose.
Medical Assisting Program Director (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – June 4, 2017
My work days were busy and productive. I enjoyed the management and culture of the school. The hardest part of my job was that they closed my program and I was forced to leave the company. I enjoyed the students the most.
Great work schedule, great staff, great students.
The program closed after a short short period of time, I don't feel it was ever given a chance to succeed.
Financial Aid Manager (Former Employee) – Minneapolis, MN – October 18, 2016
Helping students with payments and explaining charges and taking payments and explaining how to read and understand their ledger card. Helping with graduation and seeing the students walk across the stage.
Great team environment, opportunity for personal and professional growth, upper management terminally flawed
Employee (Former Employee) – Layton, UT – September 12, 2016
Local employee groups work diligently to develop and implement policies, procedures, and activities designed to deliver quality career education. Team works well together. Great communication at a local level. Opportunity for faculty and staff to contribute collectively or excel independently is afforded.
BVU is a privately held company with ownership and an administrative team that are often disconnected with the market and target market alike leading to limitations and high levels of stress.
Great co-workers, people care about each other and performance outcomes
Adjunct Faculty (Former Employee) – Appleton, WI – August 7, 2016
Liked my job and was told I'd get full time but others were hired in my place for that despite my hard work. Very poor pay. Some degree of disrespect for differences. Cannot trust too much transition and lots of cuts.
Program Chair (Current Employee) – La Crosse, WI – July 13, 2016
Globe University is a good place to work. It has a solid culture with supportive management. Advancement and full time opportunities are inconsistent. In addition, compensation is not the best in education.
Typically multitasking incoming phone calls, in-office IM internal messages with employees in their offices, greeting students, clients and miscellaneous guests walking in and out the front door of the university was a pleasure for me.
In the later evening I was able to also deal with people while doing my own personal class work for the university which, is obviously another multitasking endeavor. Although not always an easy task. I also enjoyed working with the teaching staff on a personal yet, professional basis. I also enjoyed assisting them get prepared for their next day's classes by preparing paperwork, copies and "behind the scene" work.
Sending and receiving faxes, priority and certified mail and daily mail distribution, working with the full time day administrative assistant in ordering supplies, keeping stock of school office supplies. Keeping and following daily procedures to help ensure the office to always ran smoothly and efficiently.
Preparing meeting rooms for campus meetings and classes was always nice also. It always felt great knowing what I was performing a role that had immediate specific importance in assisting other employees and teachers positions and roll's on campus easier for them which, kept me very busy.
Along the way, it was great knowing the office staff as a person not, just as another student.
The people, students and business clientele.
Multitasking between school work and my actual job.
