Good day-to-day culture, serious industry and company concerns
Financial Aid Advisor (Current Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – March 16, 2017
Overall, working day to day with this company can be enjoyable; you will enjoy the people you work with, and most of the students you work with are enjoyable as well. Compensation and benefits are decent, and you'll not have many issues requesting time off, etc. However, there are some major issues here: first, this company tends to hold on to certain people for far too long despite what some consider poor work characteristics (attitude, work quality, etc.). This results in a work environment with some long-term employees who leave slack, and recent hires who get quickly stressed out by picking up that slack. Furthermore, for-profit education can be a very stressful industry, and this company tends to cyclically release a large number of employees.
