Good company outside of Columbia Campus
Recruiting (Former Employee), Columbia, SCMay 18, 2015
Pros: great benefits and growth opportunities
Cons: Extremely Poor Managment, Schedule, and Stress
A typical day consist of making outbound calls to recruit perspective students. The schedule consists of two nights a week working until 8pm and one weekend shift per month at minimum. Very fast paced environment and opportunity for growth.

Extremely poor management and high turnover rate in the Columbia campus. Management within the Columbia campus is unprofessional and manipulative. Corporate has been notified on numerous occasions about the unprincipled behaviors and have failed to resolve the situations.

The hardest part of the job is the fact that it is repetitive and can quickly become tiring and stressful. The most enjoyable part is helping students.

Unfortunately the previous reviews listed about the Columbia Campus are about 99% accurate.

Business Office Manager (Current Employee), Irving, TXMarch 5, 2015
This is a good company as a whole, but the organization is one that lacks. Within the last 6 months my campus alone has gone through 3 Campus Directors, several Admissions Representatives and the students are noticing these many changes which has them questioning a lot.

Strayer is a large university with professional staff and a great place to work.
Academic Assistant to Dean (Current Employee), Greenville, SCMarch 2, 2015
Pros: meeting great professional people from all areas of the country.
Cons: the restructuring of the university and combining jobs.
Strayer University opened a campus in Greenville, SC in March, 2004 and I began my career with the university as Academic Assistant to the Dean. I helped with the hiring of the faculty, scheduling the classes and ordering books for the faculty. Also, I assisted students with planning their curriculum and scheduling classes. I was responsible for maintaining student files, checking transcripts and tracking time sheets for advisors. I was constantly working with faculty concerns, administrative concerns and student issues. The hardest part of the job was the turn over in Deans, but it was also enjoyable in that I have made friends for life with great people in the academic world.
