No life work balance; incompetent management
Financial Aid (Former Employee) – Indiana – August 5, 2015
This is a company where if you suck up, you will get far. If you are different in any way, you are shunned and treated poorly by co-workers.
This company's mission statement includes that there is a great life-work balance and that family is a priority. This is untrue and in fact hours in the financial aid department where changed on a quarterly basis. At the interview, I was told this was a day job, and maybe the latest I would work was six or seven a few times a year. By the time I left, I was working until 7 two nights a week and 8 one night a week. In addition, people with children were allowed much more room for schedule accommodation, while those without children were not given this privilege.
The company says they promote growth from within, but consistently hires for management positions from outside the company. This has proven to be a mistake given the high termination rate for new employees.
Unfriendly, unapproachable management and a clique-like atmosphere. The CEO actually said at a meeting (paraphrased), if people don't fit in, "Get them off the bus." Don't even waste your time on this place.
Long hours, poor managment and training, cultish staff members
