Decent Start, But Don't Stay
Admissions (Former Employee) –  Baltimore, MDAugust 1, 2017
This is a decent place to start out but don't stay here.
It's very easy to spot the people who stayed here to long. Passive aggressive management, many departments are understaffed and priorities shift on the fly. No room for growth but you're regularly asked to do tasks outside your pay grade; they call them 'projects'. With that being said I highly advise against management positions because they are all miserable. Your productivity is micromanaged. There's definitely dysfunctional power dynamics; some tenured employees are allowed to do whatever they please and everything they won't do will be put on you. Sometimes management will even make you deal with the bad behavior so they won't have to. Management will also try and take advantage of your work ethic. Rewards are rare and uneven; certain departments get treated to lunch every week. Good to accrue experience for a better job and not much else.
Pros
good to build experience, possible networking
Cons
no growth, management, company software, inconsistent work environment

Shady stuff
Enrollment Advisor (Former Employee) –  Columbia, MDJuly 25, 2017
Pay was awful. Lunches were really short, and restroom breaks were monitored!
Internal issues with different departments was very common.
Shady practices were done in enrollment and in financial aid.

Don't question anything or face the consequences
Enrollment Advisor (Inside Sales) (Former Employee) –  MarylandJune 13, 2017
Don't ever question why anything is ever implemented. Only know it was most likely expensive to purchase and use.

Coworkers and other department colleagues were great to work with. Inconsistent and inflexible management and directors.

As long as you do what is told (don't argue or question), raises can be decent, and you will accrue vacation hours. Educational benefit is terrific.
Pros
decent pay raises, vacation accrual
Cons
micro-managed; inflexibility to use individual methods of communication

Great Public Company

Good place to work however a bit confused
SSC Finance Controller (Former Employee) –  Brazil, INDecember 19, 2016
Good place to work, so many challenge and very dinamic environment. Excellent team and relation between the mgmt level to the team work. The leadership is conducted in a horizontal manner and the company is very democratic in terms of process. There is no difference between people although there is a lack of transparence when the subject is career growth. The headquarter requires the perfect scenario in all business instances mainly because the company is going to IPO however there is also a lack of corporate culture which jeopardize the entire organization.
Pros
Excellent policy of compensation and benefits
Cons
Changing priority all the times and low business leadership culture

Fabulous international colleagues and collaborative working environment.
The organization is currently in flux and reacting quickly to industry and political changes, this has lead to uncertainty and conflict as the business priorities switch between hitting targets and providing the bext experience for our students.
Pros
Discount on further studies are available.
Cons
Ever changing priorities and leadership team means there is confusion.
