Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Washington, DCMay 12, 2017
In my position, I was responsible for reconciling the monitoring the department's expenses. One has to be dedicated and have the willingness to work and learn new things. If you are looking for a job to collect a paycheck, this job is not the one for you.

Assistant Director (Former Employee) –  Washington City, DCApril 23, 2017
A very poor culture. I do not recommend certain portions of the university to work in; others seem to be fine. Overall, the staff is unhappy; high turnover and the students leave at an alarming rate also.

An employer that is in a downward spiral
Human Resources (Former Employee) –  Washington, DCJanuary 5, 2016
In the time I was here the overall culture, atmosphere, and management declined. Employees are over worked and underpaid. Managers are not professional and they are not given any training opportunities. Bad managers are not dealt with and continue bad behavior. HR is totally dysfunctional with horrible directors on staff. I was so happy to get out of that organization.
Pros
Good time off benefits, retirement benefits, and education benefits.
Cons
Low pay, bad culture.
