Assistant Professor (Former Employee) – Savannah, GA – March 20, 2018
I loved working at South. I was usually able to get my work done in the mornings, freeing up the rest of my day. Teaching online was so satisfying. Not only did we have a good work atmosphere, but the institution paid for a person to obtain additional education.
If it weren't for the parent company being unable to pay its bills, I'd probably still be working for South.

You are rewarded by reporting your fellow co-workers and management communication to employees is humiliating. The sense of fair play is not shown to all employees and turnover is high. Senior Director is emotional and does not develop or coach employees unless its required for his own job security (at the end of each quarter).
Meet good people that wants to do well
no raises, mediocre benefits and lack of leadership

While they describe the job as "not sales", you can put lipstick on a pig and it's still a pig. This is a sales job. You call people who don't want to be called, trying to get them to go to a school they can't afford. If you cannot meet your goal despite calling and calling and emailing and blowing up their phones and inboxes, you are still the one held accountable.

There are daily challenges and opportunities. I really appreciate the continued efforts of the forward facing staff with assisting students in reaching their goal. I wish that the faculty put forth the same efforts

Call center environment with non individualized goals. Cold calling people that are rarely interested in an online education. those who actually are typically go to more senior members of the team. no real growth other than to team manager but those positions arent secure.

Unfortunately, the company has gone down hill drastically in the last few years. They advertise as being student focused but their only priority is hitting and exceeding budget. The compensation was descent, but didn't out weight the stress and poor management that comes along with it.
Professor of Accounting (Current Employee) – Round Rock, TX – October 21, 2017
Nice people and a nice place to work. Management has always been good to me and treated me fairly. I have no complaint against the school or the management of South University. I would, however, like to have more classes in Accounting to teach each quarter.

Great starter job, if you're looking to start your career, this would be the place. If you don't mind tons of phone calls, then this is the job for you, but if you don't like being on the phone a lot then this is not the job for you.
Assistant Director of Admissions (Former Employee) – Chandler, AZ – September 20, 2017
would contact potential students to enroll in college courses online. I helped with all student aid and grants for the classes, I followed up and helped with motivation through the first class. I helped get transcripts and grades to transfer to new courses.
