Great place for development
Adjunct Professor Organizational Leadership (Current Employee), san diego, caJuly 15, 2014
Pros: flexible hours
Cons: limited classes allowed to be taught per session
People take interest in your career development. Everyone who teaches at National University is extremely nice and willing to guide you through your development - all you need to do is reach out to them. I had complete say in whether I was able to teach certain classes. I was given the opportunity to teach online, in class, or both, with the suggestion – more... to be open to anything in order to get staffed more. – less

Staw Away!!!!
Head Assistant Coach (Current Employee), san diegoJune 18, 2014
Pros: convenience, great facilities
Cons: management!
As an adjunct professor, I have seen first hand how political this University is with ALL of its' employees.

Unless you want to beg & plead for classes from your program leads, it simply is not worth it. The pay is mediocre and inconsistent with the message they put out there.

I cannot speak for any of the other schools, but the SHHS has so many problems. – more... From to much turn around to mismanagement from the staffing leads. Zero help from supervisors in terms of class instruction.

I wish they would clean up their act instead of playing favorites and interoffice politics. – less

The company was very generous with vacation and sick leave.
Business Office Manager (Former Employee), Vista CAJune 16, 2014
Pros: great work environment, generous vacation and sick leave, they paid for my education
Cons: pay was low because they included education in our salary.
I loved working in an education environemnt. There was a time when the University had a pay freeze. Since we wouldn't be getting raises, the president of the university gave us more vacation and sick time to make up for it. I loved working with the students on a day to day basis. It was a very upbeat place to work. I ran the business office at one of – more... the campuses and my job was to process student tuition payments, process financial aid, including loans, grants and scholarships. We also called and collected on past debt and made payment arrangements with students. I also reconciled the daily payments and got the deposit ready for the courier and managed the campus petty cash fund. – less

Do as your told and don't ask questions
Admin Assistant (Current Employee), La Jolla, CAApril 16, 2014
Pros: free education
Cons: pay is below market
The corporate culture spews fear and it can be a very hostile work environment if you don't do as you're told and stop asking questions. A typical day at work is busy and time flies by as you're trying to meet deadlines while utilizing as few resources as possible. The HR team is a joke and no one ever takes responsibility for anything. Going to them – more... to resolve conflict or issues in the workplace is like talking to a brick wall. They won't do a thing. The most enjoyable part of the job is having mostly friendly staff to work with. But the upper management team couldn't care less about who you are or what you do. Everyone is replaceable, which is why National has such high turnover. – less

Fun workplace if you enjoy being by yourself
Staff (Current Employee), San Diego, CAFebruary 14, 2014
Pros: casual friday, lots of paid holidays, good technological equipment, embracement of new technology
Cons: leaders need leadership training, too much posturing, lack of accountability
While it is a professional looking institution with great talent, the administration needs accountability and training to better manage their people. The IT department is fantastic and there are a lot of really highly qualified hard working employees! There are pros and cons to every institution, and the new chancellor will likely effect positive change – more... for entrenched policies, procedures, faculty, and administration. It always works best when change is instituted from the top and trickles down, over time. – less

I have been working here for the past 7 years and I like it very much. Its very family oriented super easy to get along with everyone.
My boss (lead tech) is very helpful and has taught me things that I would have never learned in school.

Being a computer tech there is sometimes stressful and challenging... but it's also the most enjoyable part as – more... well. – less

Manager (Former Employee), Los Angeles, CAAugust 26, 2013
Pros: job security
Cons: pay isn't comparable to other positions in the industry
The managers are great and are always more than willing to train new hires. Once promoted into a management position, you will find several "off-site" training's which you can use in other fields as well.

Overall a good experience
Computer Lab Assistant (Current Employee), San Diego, CAJuly 25, 2013
Pros: get discount at cafeteria
A typical day at work would be meeting people from different parts of the world and helping them with their computer related queries. I learned how to deal with people from different cultures and standings. My supervisor is a very understanding and supportive person. Co-workers are respectful and really good at what they do. The hardest part of my job – more... is asking people to leave when they don't observe the rules and regulations even after giving warnings. The most enjoyable part of my job is the information I get from different people when they share their knowledge and experience with me. – less

Hostile, discriminatory, and wretched place
Library (Former Employee), LibraryMarch 13, 2013
Pros: learn to survive anything, winter break paid
Cons: pay, benefits, retirement, health care, management, everything
Back biting managers who have power struggles and sacrifice staff. No support. Wretched pay. If you need a free education it is worth it. Stay away otherwise. Be careful when you leave your final check may bounce :)

Great place to get your feet in the Higher Education industry. National University offer wonderful benefit, including free education. Full time employee can obtain bachelor for free after 6 months and Master degree for with a massive discount or free (depending on how fast you want to finish).

I work for the school of Engineering and the environment – more... couldn't be more encouraging, one of the most positive place I've worked at. I love coming to work every day and my days are productive yet fun. It is a great place to work and learn. – less
