Poor Upper Management, No security
Digital Media Specialist (Former Employee) –  Baltimore, MDJanuary 11, 2018
You may be well compensated, maybe, but layoffs are common and irrational at this company. Disingenuous is the word I would use to describe the two-faced upper management. They are also uninspired and out of touch. Consider a job at Laureate temporary, not a career.

Senior Enrollment Advisor (Former Employee) –  Baltimore, MDJanuary 4, 2018
Laureate can be a fine place to start your career as an enrollment advisor. It's good for a young person, most of the Enrollment managers are millennials, that micro-manage. It's tough for an older person

Staff Accountant (Former Employee) –  Baltimore, MDDecember 18, 2017
The environment there is very chaotic, but it also offers a lot of unique experiences and career opportunities if you can keep up with it. Definitely not for everyone, but those who like a challenge will find it an exciting place to work.

Walden University Management Culture
Senior Registrar Operations Specialist (Current Employee) –  Columbia, MDOctober 17, 2017
- As a "Senior Registrar Operations Specialist" a typical day consists of identifying and prioritizing escalated incidents that may require immediate attention via Banner, SalesForce and Outlook databases.
- Oversee the day to day operations of a team of six: includes delegation of tasked incidents in SalesForce, student conferral sheets, and/or special projects
- Review, disseminate, and disperse spreadsheets for CAO Reports, Diploma Reports, Notification to Submit, Graduation Applications, Conferrals, P1's, SO's, plus more
- Provide processing training for all tiers: teammates, Registrar department, management, senior management, directors, and executives


- As a lateral move, coming from Enrollment, I was able to get a better understanding of how the back end operated and where some of the causes and effects were being initiated.


- In my case, the workplace culture and management directly intertwined. The workplace culture, from a leadership perspective, was that management of a processing team did not require knowledge of the process. The focus was not to know the process but to be able to manage it. I found this to be an interesting approach but it is what the company brands as successful team development.


- In my capacity as a senior on the team, one of the most challenging parts of the job is to keep the team moving forward with positive momentum.
- As a new manager without any processing experience was assigned to the team, keeping the team on task was my daily challenge.
- This was largely in part to lack of communication and direction
  more... from management.


- One of the most enjoyable parts of the job for me is when I am able to watch someone's expressions as the wheels start turning and then the look of understanding takes over. As most of the team is fairly new, the 2 senior members (including myself) work very closely to coach and teach on the various Registrar Dept processes. When a teammate looks at me and says, "I got it, Thanks, Will, the training was very helpful", that was one of the most rewarding parts of the job.

Senior Business Analyst (Current Employee) –  Baltimore, MDSeptember 13, 2017
The company was PE owned and got listed in 2017. It is trying to standardize many procedures and update the policies. Many teams are experiencing transitions in terms of the way their work.

The company has most of its business in Latin America. So you will be able to meet many internationals.

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.
