Limited advancement opportunities.
Admissions Counselor (Former Employee) –  Port Saint Lucie, FLAugust 17, 2017
Stressful and backstabbing environment. Essentially the Admissions Counselor position is a telemarketing position requiring long work days including and nights and weekends. Limited opportunity for advancement.

Decent salary and education opportunities
Senior Admissions Counselor (Former Employee) –  Melbourne, FLAugust 14, 2017
Keiser University Admissions Department has a one word vocabulary. Enrollment. if you can handle that, and just do it, the job will turn into a fast passed career with some opportunity. Don't get to attached though. Admissions is a high burn out rate.
Pros
good salary after 5 years.
Cons
You name it but it starts with stress and start dates.

Keiser Ft. Myers
COLLEGE PROFESSOR (Former Employee) –  Ft. Myers, FLAugust 13, 2017
The teachers are the best and most qualified; not just friends of the administration. Management is fair and communicates regularly with faculty. The culture is fun and supportive and the students really do come first. Great place to work.
Pros
Flexible class days
Cons
Weekly meetings

cut throat and the favorites games
Admissions Counselor (Former Employee) –  Doral, FLAugust 8, 2017
this place is nothing but smoke and mirrors. management pretends to really care about their employees, but the second you are not making your numbers you are out. you also have to watch out for other co-workers taking your new inquires and taking over your new enrolled students to meet their own goals. they say you cant sell education and school, but this was nothing more than a call center. long call logs of numbers, calling all day, fishing for just one person to not hang up on you all the while you are trying to convince them why they need to go into debt to complete or start their education. if you didn't meet your numbers or if you upset management or weren't on the "in" of the circle, management would inform the receptionist not to send you any new inquiries (and these fresh new callers are your lifeline to making your goal, NOT calling random numbers from the call log). potential students all have to take a small "exam" to see whether or not they are a candidate for the degree they thought they were seeking; i.e. someone comes in and wants nursing. they need to score a 9 on this so-called admittance exam. they score a 3...management would "encourage" us to basically convince them to do medical assisting first before going into nursing.

Poor budget, always an excuse no money in budget
Associate Degree Nursing Instructor (Current Employee) –  Sarasota, FL 34240July 18, 2017
Hardest part of job is administration and directors who do not want to welcome change. They do not encourage input nor accept it. Management is only concerned with keeping enrollment up and do not care about the success of the students.
Pros
None
Cons
More work less pay

Amazing experience
Psychology Professor (Current Employee) –  Tampa, FLJuly 3, 2017
I am just looking to supplement with on line jobs, I will never leave Keiser. Amazing family atmosphere. Everyday is like getting to be around your best most intelligent friends. the policy of student's first is not just lip service, it is a way of life. From the owner down to the faculty and staff, the level of integrity and commitment is bar none.
Pros
Family

Histology Clinical Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Orlando, FLJune 28, 2017
A lot of work in which you are challenged but I enjoy to be challenged and learn new things. Management is horrible, work culture needs a lot of work, hardest part of the job you really don't get any support, the most enjoyable part of the job, being part of the students education and see them excel in their new journey after completing a degree.
Pros
pay, healthcare
Cons
management

Professor (Current Employee) –  FloridaJune 15, 2017
I have worked for Keiser for over 10 years. I am a salaried employee; however, we have to punch a clock for a minimal of 40 hours per week. Trust and believe you will work over 40 hours per work.

Horrible work environment
Admissions Advisor (Former Employee) –  Pembroke Pines, FLJune 14, 2017
I worked at Keiser for more than a year. Managers are utterly rude, but this trickles down from the top. The campus president is horrible. There is no respect for staff, no work-life balance. They are selling education, which is defeating the purpose of truly helping and guiding students. STAY AWAY!!!!

none

poor compensation

Lies, lies and more lies. Horrible place.
Community Relations Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Clearwater, FLJune 11, 2017
Easily the most toxic place I've ever worked. Everything about Keiser is a scam. Even the good reviews on here are created. Please heed my advice; do not think about working here or attending school at Keiser.
Pros
None whatsoever
Cons
Absolutely everything

Highly unethical school, stay away
Director of Admissions (Former Employee) –  Fort Lauderdale, FLJune 11, 2017
Being non-for-profit is a front for the Chancellor who has pulled in $30 million annually through all kinds of IRS violations, conflicts of interest in real estate and his $1,000,000 per year salary.

Complete call center environment where "assess need to be in classes."

Little or no help is offered to admissions people who are struggling...KU is quick to fire people without offering any type of training or help. They are top heavy with executive leadership, but since they are non-profit, who really cares...
Pros
I was making a ton of money while working there
Cons
high pressure, call center environment with micromanagement, unethical business practices and violations of HEA rules and regs

Stuck in the dark ages
Admissions Counselor (Current Employee) –  Melbourne, FLJune 7, 2017
The management is so under qualified that there is no structure or enforced expectations. There is no consistency in management and everyone is grossly underpaid for a sales job. The people were very nice to work with and friendly, no office politics, but the hours are just crazy. Working both nights and weekends and no flexibility in scheduling makes for a burn out waiting to happen.
Pros
the people
Cons
pay, management, environment, hours
