Goal-oriented and performance-driven workplace with no built-in recreation.
Senior Admissions Officer (Former Employee), 1520 Jabez Run, Millersville, MD 21108January 14, 2014
Pros: we enjoyed eating good food while working together as one team to achieve one common goal.
Cons: work was consuming and sometimes we worked harder than smarter.
Fast-paced, engaging and progressive workplace where adult students' lives are changed daily through a quality education. Learned of various life-changing programs in fields of studies, including accounting, business administration, criminal justice, education, healthcare, hospitality & tourism management, human resources management, information systems, – more... management information systems, project management, and public administration. Had the privilege to work with extremely dedicated managers and co-workers who thrived on providing quality customer services to students. Some prospective students could not be helped due to financial reasons making it difficult to service them. Thoroughly enjoyed working one-on-one with each student and applauding everyone's success. – less

Admissions Officer (Current Employee), Austin, TXDecember 19, 2013
Pros: a rewarding job where you help people.
Cons: long hours of operation.
The company has had massive layoffs the past two years. It has closed many campuses and eliminated hundreds of positions at the corporate office and remaining campuses. There is very high turnover in all departments. The best part of this job is that you help people improve their lives. With the right management team it is a good place to work. Unfortunately, – more... people do not stay for long in management positions. The hardest part of the job is the lack of communication. Policies change often but the information is not communicated effectively. The hours of operation also change quite often. This makes it difficult to plan weekends and take vacations. Sundays are the only days that the office is closed. – less

Lack of communication from DEAN
Full Time Professor (Current Employee), Memphis, TNDecember 3, 2013
Pros: flexible
Cons: healthcare
If you aren't part of the click( inner circle) team. You will not be asked to continue employment....The irony is you will hear it from students. If you don't go out for drinks or social (home) gathering..........you are (black market out). The students are willing to learn (not all). Strayer University is the place if you want to earn .......effortless – more... degree. It is as easy as walking in the park. If you are thinking of working for this wonderful University. I would say it is a learning experience. Give Strayer a try it will change your future. – less
