Not for the weak.
Pros: great co-workers, paid what i asked for.
Cons: high pressure, low transparency, lack-luster benefits, unrealistic daily expectations to meet consistently.
There's a lot of talk here about community and support for our students, but it starts to fall apart when it comes to the company's culture. Apparently, the online division started in Carmel in 2007, and a little while ago they came in, cleaned house, and started over. There were six people in my recruiting class, and as of today, there are only two – more... or three people remaining, one of whom was hired into a director position.
There's a lot of pressure to perform when there's only so much you can do to reach prospective students. After the first two weeks, I felt as though my job was on the line every single day. When I expressed this concern to other advisors, nearly all of them said the same thing. My director hardly ever leaves the office. Last week, the first two days they seemed quiet and defeated. "I don't know what else to say to you guys." No one is sure where the pressure is coming from.
The culture here seems unstable, and there's very little transparency from the upper management. Everyone knows when something is happening or when certain conversations are being had: It's too small of an office to hide it. This keeps everyone on edge nearly all of the time.
If you value your time and your sanity, I do not recommend. – less
