Pros: small classes, decent pay
Cons: management, morals, long hours= no respect or recognition
I have worked at the Gulfport, MS campus since 2011, two months after the doors opened. I am very passionate about my craft and went above and beyond to create a great program. It took for the accreditation board to see my work and advise the poor management team that I was doing a lot of work and should be promoted to Program Director. I implemented – more... alot of resourceful links into the program and expected a lot from my students.
Management is VERY poor. I was asked to give a grade to try and help a student pass. They way the management/corporation is set up is failing our future healthcare providers. They care more about the money and numbers rather than producing a quality product.
There were several days I was there before management and still there when they left. They do not recognize the greatness of the instructors. Instead, if you don't fit into their mold, you are a target!!
As for the students, they knew what was going on and many played into it.
Corporate dropped the entrance score so that more students would pass and enter into the very expensive programs.
Overall, this is simply a paycheck, there is no recognition, respect or morals involved anywhere in this campus' code of ethics. – less
