Nursing instructor (Current Employee), Charlotte, NCJuly 27, 2015
Pros: Great coworkers, able to positively impact the students, flexible environment
Cons: No lunch breaks, clocking in and out even though salaried, no support from administration, no vacation time, micro managed, lack of respect from some students
This place is a joke. Administration is not supportive of their staff. They make you pass students who they know will not pass their nursing boards. You are given 2 weeks of vacation but those 2 weeks are used during the christmas holiday vacation. You have no choice, they will just use them, leaving you with nearly no vacation time during the rest of the year. There is no orientation for new faculty and no support from administration. The only time they speak to you is to criticize you. The students know all of this and don't work hard to get the work done. Why should they when they can just be pushed along?

I work here (Current Employee), One of the campusesJune 3, 2015
Not the best place to work, but far from the worst. Communication is a nightmare and they rarely promote from within. But the schedule is flexible and you work with some great people.

It was a great opportunity to gain some on hand office experience and also to have that added to my resume.

Run Away As Fast As You Can
Administrator (Former Employee), Multiple Campus LocationsFebruary 1, 2015
Pros: nothing that is positive counter balances the poisonous nature of the whole organization.
Cons: everything!
Read everything you can about the failing for-profit education industry, and the very ugly players in it, and then raise those problems to the 100th power, and you will have an idea of what it is like to work at any campus of ECPI University.

The job culture is one of top-down, negative, management, whose only goal is to put money in their personal pockets. No consideration for employees, business and education ethics, or regulatory affairs that protect end users of education, both as students and consumers. No consideration for honesty.

Founder likely had great intentions 50 odd years ago, but those good intentions are long gone.

Federal Work Study (Former Employee), Newport News, VAJanuary 23, 2015
Being a student, I was able to work very flexible hours, while finishing my degree. I worked in the Financial aid department, where I loved the environment. I had my own work station, and I also had amazing coworkers that I shared the room with. Incredible people, whom I still keep in contact with to this day.

Student Worker (Current Employee), VAJanuary 3, 2015
Pros: very thorough and extencivlly hard working.
Cons: can be unorganized at first only.
I have worked in many positions and have gone to many schools. I have worked in one position for over 9 years of my life and will probably be with your company for many years. I have done well in my college deeds and am a true winner. I have also even patented my own device and own my own company.

Interesting and ever-evolving culture
Director of Career Services (Current Employee), Virginia Beach, VADecember 24, 2014
Pros: committed colleagues, institutional integrity
Cons: limited promotion opportunities, lack of top down communication efficacy
My position requires a day to day flexibility and creative approach to a variety of challenges, process improvements, analysis of continuous progress, and inter-departmental dynamics that all co-exist to achieve this University's mission and vision.

I am surrounded by a large campus community that are collectively talented, committed, and certainly diverse. The Management structure is highly organized yet, at times disconnected in communication styles due to status and/or position priviledge.

Still, my position is largely focused on achieving and supporting those who are participating in programs offered and for community constituents who are seeking great candidates for their business opportunities. Achieving these multi-layered goals are highly satisfying as evidenced by the success of others.
