ADA/Disabilities Services, (Former Employee) – Scottsdale, AZ – January 16, 2017
Despite the great co-workers and developing the supoort for the students. Success in the DS office would not be possible without the support of the AA. The ADA worked very long hours with an extremely heavy case load with little support/backup or understanding of the purpose of this federally mandated program.
with the hours required to servise students impossible to take advantage of the education offered.
Academic Advisor (Current Employee) – Scottsdale, AZ – December 16, 2016
I enjoy the people I work with and my immediate boss is understanding and compassionate. I find the overall leadership out of touch with the reality of what happens at the student-facing level. Recent changes in job requirements give me concern for whether or not I wish to stay there.
Receptionist/Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – Scottsdale, AZ – November 17, 2016
Great job, great atmosphere, overall a good experience. Only problem was I was told I would have plenty of notice before the end of my contracted (which was extended) which did not happen. I only got 4 days notice and last day fell on the day before a major holiday. Not very employee friendly in that aspect.
PhD student (Current Employee) – Denver, CO – August 25, 2016
A typical day consists of 5-8 hours of research and professional writing on a selected topic/7 days a week. My time is managed to ensure both personal and professional development are incorporated. The hardest part of the further developing my education is identifying an appropriate dissertation topic.
Student Finance Advisor (Former Employee) – Scottsdale, AZ – December 31, 2015
In a typical work day at NCU I would review over 50 student accounts to ensure the student had funding in place for courses. Multi-tasking was a huge skill utilized daily to work reports, review accounts, respond to emails internally and externally, and answer phone calls from students and employees. Initiation and team work were necessary and intricate parts of NCU life. The hardest part of my job was lack of support and direction from leadership. The most enjoyable parts of my job were interacting with my team and the feeling of accomplishment when tasks were completed.
fast-paced, room to learn, amazing team to work with of fellow employees
healthcare, unlclear expectations from leadership, sometimes too many expectations of what to acheive on a daily basis
Great co-workers; very high stress and work overload. Management doesn't care. Frequent reduction in workforce.Company doesn't contribute to a retirement fund, monthly insurance fees are high. Work environment is poor- fears that everyday could be your last. No upward mobility.
Dedicated co-workers, faculty and academic leadership
Organizational management; poor work environment; high stress, dwindling benefits
Associate Enrollment Advisor (Current Employee) – Scottsdale, AZ – October 19, 2015
Although there is a quota for enrollments per month, it isn't as high sales as other online universities. Would like to have room to advance, but this company is very small compared to similar online universities.
Admissions Representative and Coordinator (Former Employee) – Scottsdale, AZ – September 22, 2015
Everyday it feels as if you are working at Disneyland! Met the best people in the World in there. Job allows you to advance and get your higher degree at there expense. They have a dress down dress code. They greatly reward their employees with plaques.

support (Former Employee) – Prescott Valley, AZ – March 13, 2015
The culture is watch your back, don't trust anyone. CYA at all costs. The management only cares about $$, not the students or the employees. Co-workers will stab you in the back to protect themselves. NO training what so ever, sink or swim attitude. Don't complain about anything or you will be shown the door out. There is not much I can say that is positive about this company.
