Professor (Former Employee) – Sarasota, FL – August 3, 2016
They make you believe that you are valued but then the bottom falls out. Had my hours cut from full-time to adjunct with no warning and very minimal notice. No concerns that I was loosing my medical, which was needed as my husband is disabled. I'm expected to teach as much but with no benefits. They are a business and the bottom dollar is more important than the employees.
Communications (Current Employee) – Florida – July 28, 2016
I work in a very collaborative environment at KU where opinions are valued, accountability and teamwork are required, and results are recognized. I've learned that the organization gives back to you what you give to it. My co-workers work as one unit and no task is too big or small for anyone, ever. The hardest part of the job is a feeling that you may have not done enough, although you might feel like you've done as much as you could, or that the trends are outpacing you. The most enjoyable part of the job is when external audiences acknowledge what we know internally, which is the value of the education we provide.
Regional Director (Current Employee) – Ft. Lauderdale, FL – July 28, 2016
I've worked at KU for nine years and find that I have never had the same day twice. With new programs, new students and new locations there is always something else to learn about. Interactions with the students are my favorite part of my job because it is wonderful to hear their stories and to learn how their lives are changing for the better thanks to their educational journey. The management always takes the time to listen and the benefits are comparable to other places I have worked. It is hard to leave work behind when I go on vacation because I truly enjoy what I do.
family-like atmosphere, good benefits, open door policy, charitable employer very active with a variety of organizations
It would be nice to have faster internet connection and wifi that is consistent and faster
Excellent environment, it's all about the students!
Part time instructor (Current Employee) – Florida – July 28, 2016
Excellent environment, you're provided with all the tools you need to do your job and more, everyone is so friendly and helpful. Management is very approachable and in everything that you do, it's easy to see it's all about the students.
Everyone is so friendly and helpful, like a community
The tasks are mundane and tedious. No room for creativity.
Developer (Current Employee) – Fort Lauderdale, FL – July 28, 2016
Over worked with no satisfaction at the end of the day. Every process is archaic. The co-workers are great and all hangs in there as long as they can until they can not take the tasks anymore and eventually leaves. Moral is always low. The only reason anyone lasts as long as they do at this company is because of the great co-workers.
Lots of phone work while trying to enroll students into a program that will maximize their education. Keiser is a private university which focuses on small classrooms that will provide students with individualized attention.
comfortable office atmosphere
some students make up excuses for going back to school
Registrar/PDSO to SEVIS (Former Employee) – Sarasota, FL – April 29, 2016
Keiser is a great university with a very student focused approach to education. The management team works well to involve co works at all levels in decision making and campus awareness. It was one of my most challenging and rewarding jobs.
Admissions Counselor (Current Employee) – Fort Lauderdale, FL – April 7, 2016
This position will keep you busy and motivated as you motivate students I have learned many useful skills such as time management, Student record management,calling and following up with students.Co-workers are always helpful and caring towards each other. There are no hard parts because all new employees are trained professionally. The most enjoyable part is when a student is enrolled and you know that the student's life will never be the same as it was.
