Corporate employee (Former Employee) – Northern VA – August 13, 2015
In my case I was able to acquire a lot of good skills and experiences during my time there, in addition to enjoying my work, and I believe this is true for many. There has always been a great deal mobility (mostly upward), all over the company and for all of my years there. Layoffs are something that management tries hard to avoid, and in large part, succeeds. The work environment was reasonably pleasant for me, although I know this was not always true for everyone depending on the functional unit or the location or who is in charge (which I believe is probably also true everywhere). The difference between being a corporate employee and a field (campus) employee are enormous, hence reviews by corporate v field employees may vary widely.

ADJUNCT COLLEGE PROFESSOR (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – July 31, 2015
It was an ok place to work. I just did not agree with the business philosophy that put profits over students. The students on ground did same work as students online in which student loss out on valuable information that could be provided by the Professor from real world experience.
Assistant Bursar/Billing Specialist (Current Employee) – Chantilly, VA – July 23, 2015
A typical day can include posting Title IV financial aid to student accounts, sending mass communications to students and invoicing to sponsor companies for students' tuition. There is plenty to do always. Management is okay, moving up requires knowing people and connections.
Frequent Free Lunches, Laid back office environment

Strayer University is a very good place to work with excellent leadership. Overall, the leadership is caring and dedicated to promote positive employment engagement and super-fantastic working conditions.

Recruiting (Former Employee) – Columbia, SC – May 18, 2015
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.
