You must be unethical to do this job
Academic Assistant (Former Employee) –  Memphis, TNFebruary 16, 2017
You get to meet some nice people. However they expect for you to just sign people up for online classes that can hardly sign their own names. Admissions is all about numbers. Quantity over quality.
Pros
Meet great people
Cons
No integrity, unethical

Very rewarding environment in terms of research and programs.;
Adjunct Professor of Criminal Justice (Current Employee) –  Douglasville, GAFebruary 16, 2017
Strayer University is a very versatile University consisting of students from all different back grounds and countries. Such as Nigeria, Latin America, The West Indies etc.
I only teach as a part time adjunct professor.
The hardest part of the job is helping students to develop written skills.
The most enjoyable part of the job is seen students improve their performance continually unto the end of the quarter.
I have learned to tutor inmates individually based on their strength and weaknesses.

Okay company, but the education is sub par. I know high school kids who could graduate from here. The worse part is that they lay you off without any notice.

Pros: cheap education for employees (terrible for your next job tho)
nice people

School Puts Students First
Vice President (Former Employee) –  Herndon, VAJanuary 27, 2017
A typical week is from Monday thru Saturday. Work hours vary from 9-7, 10-8 and 9-1, 9-3 on Saturdays. The workplace culture is good. The school is regionally accredited and cares about their students. The hardest part of the job is admissions. Admissions requires long hours. Most enjoyable part of the job is seeing students you recruited graduate from college and pursue their dreams.
Pros
90% Tuition Paid

Campus Coordinator (Current Employee) –  PennsylvaniaJanuary 16, 2017
Strayer is a great place to work, especially if you long for a fast paced environment. I learned how to provide students with the confidence to remain in classes, and that's a big job! Management team is awesome and my coworkers are great and a wealth of information. The hardest part of the day is watching a student fail classes and the most enjoyable part of my day is watching a student who previously struggled academically do an excellent job in their class.
Pros
Flexible Hours
Cons
Working long hours

Okay Company
Admissions Officer (Current Employee) –  Memphis, TNJanuary 15, 2017
Benefits and pay are the best thing going. the management team is not the best and HR does not care much about fairness. In all fairness, work needs to be done with the culture in the trust area.

School was difficult with on campus classes
Student (Former Employee) –  Nashville, TNJanuary 14, 2017
Had more issues with teachers who refused to work with the working class. Classes were only offered on certain days and at certain hours which made it difficult for those of us who worked, especially early mornings, to attend the entire class.
Pros
Online classes didn't have set times to do class work
Cons
Campus classes were too late for some people who had to work early mornings.

Worked in temporary position. Flexible work hours, friendly environment, clean and well equipped offices. Not particularly clear communication among job areas and changing leadership made some aspects difficult.

A resume filler
ADMISSIONS OFFICER (Former Employee) –  Columbia, SCOctober 10, 2016
Strayer is a resume filler. There is not job security and if you not part of the "click" then you'll be left out in the cold.
