"Teach for us and believe the lies."
Full-Time Faculty (Former Employee) –  RemoteFebruary 21, 2013
The management hides information from instructors, full-time faculty, and admissions. EDMC, the owner of South University, has already been sued by the government for its unethical practices. Do not think that South University has gotten better; the managers simply hide their own flaws by blaming others.

Student Affairs/Career Services Advisor (Current Employee) –  Pittsburgh, PASeptember 11, 2012
During my time with South I have worked extensively with students in Student Financial Services, counseling and advising their next steps in regards to best use of Federal funding. My case load was up to 1000 student accounts at any time. In moving to Student Affairs I have become more involved in development and planning in regards to gainful employment regulations and work flows to make our operations more accurate, appropriate, and efficient. In both departments I was a leader and trained/mentored new employees while developing trainings to support using systems more effectively in our day to day activities (primarily used ImageNow and CampueVue systems). The hardest part of my job is not having a reach to communicate within departments, which is a downfall of this company (in my opinion) and could provide many opportunities for improved efficiencies, communication, and operations/curriculum development moving forward.
Pros
schedule, management team
Cons
environment (economic)
