Your Stereotypical For-Profit College
Mid-Level Manager, Student Finance. (Former Employee) – Waterbury, CT – August 23, 2016
Post isn't what it used to be, and it won't be going back anytime soon. It was bought out about 10 years ago and converted to a For-Profit institution...but doesn't turn a profit.
For students - it is over priced, lacks basic amenities, and doesn't offer an impactful experience.
For employees - the pay is laughable, work life is seriously unbalanced, advancement opportunities are only for those who are socially popular with upper management, and departments are seriously under resourced. (Example: They still work with paper filing and its 2016.)
Exec. Management team blatantly lies to employees. In December 2015, they told the whole university that although they went an entire year without making a profit, the school was in good financial shape. A month later, they fired 30+ people, and forced more to resign/leave.
They've since brought in a new CEO who seems to genuinely be working hard to turn things around, but the same Exec. Team is still under him and doesn't seem to be on board with the overall changes.
Might be a good place to work for a first job, but definitely not a place to make a career.
The advice of many who leave: Don't waste your time.
Benefits, decent healthcare, vacation/sick days.
Salary compensation, organizational structure, employee support, processes/systems, Executive Management.
