Employment History- Admissions Manager (Current Employee) – Virginia – September 21, 2017
I have never seen a University quite like Strayer. It is all about who you know and who you're friends with. When you're first hired they paint this picture of excellence, but they are so far from it. The management at my campus is terrible. The regional directors and VPs won't do anything about it. The HR department is useless. All Strayer cares about is profit and numbers . They try to bribe you with free lunches and whatever else they can to trick you into doing what they want. Yes they give 90% off tuition however their programs and professors suck! I wouldn't advise any employee to pursue their degree here. They lay off people at any given time and expect the rest of the staff to do 2 or 3 or 4 jobs at once with no extra pay. They are unorganized and their training is trash. I would use this job as a stepping stone nothing long term. They force OT on admissions and nothing we do is ever good enough. They ALWAYS want more.
Nothing that you can't get at another place of employment
Senior Finance Analyst (Current Employee) – Chantilly, VA – September 20, 2017
It is a good place to start your professional career. It has great benefits and perks. However, it lacks further advancements. For people who are ready for new challenges and responsibilities, I cannot tell that it can stay as attractive as it was in the beginning.
Slow environment, not many incentives for Admissions Officers to maintain high volume of enrollments each quarter. Company overall is very conservative, not much innovation to stay updated with technological advancements in the industry.

Good workplace. Overall, grading is time consuming since it takes a lot of diligence to accomplish. The most enjoyable part has been providing communication feedback to students and providing course recommendation insight to management. Thanks.

Strayer Online is a good school to teach for with fair compensation. There is plenty of training to equip instructors for the position and on going support. They are always improving the program and updating the technology.
Office of the Registrar (Current Employee) – Chantilly, VA – July 22, 2017
I enjoy working at Strayer University, because everybody is so nice and easy to work with. I work in a team with 9 other people and all are very helpful. Every time we finish a quarter or big project usually my supervisor buys us lunch and celebrate our accomplishments.
On a typical day, I come in and start processing transcripts for incoming students and printing out forms and then I have to sort them out and send them out either through fax, mail, or email it to the school. And then file all of the forms in the order that I processed it.

The school management are too concerned with the bottom line. While one understand's it is a business to make money, it should not be at the expense of the students or staff. However, not al negative. The campus management and staff are professional and try their best to right this wrong.
