Management cannot make up their mind the mission and strategic plan of the institution
National Program Development Manager (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – March 30, 2015
They are great at teaching the skillset needed for psychologists in different fields of study. They are dedicated to their student population. But that is speaking to the faculty and Deans, not the administration. Unfortunately, the administration cannot make up their mind what direction they want the institution to go in. Some days they want to keep things the same. Other days they want to be innovative and modern. But they don't want to invest the money or people resources to get there. They want to try it out, quickly, very quickly. And if it doesn't work once, then it is on to something else. The Executive Leadership has a different flavor of strategy, every month.
Graduate Assistant (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – April 11, 2017
I helped coordinate various events on campus and enjoyed meeting new individuals across programs and departments. If attending TCS for a graduate program, I highly recommend signing up for graduate assistant opportunists.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – August 15, 2016
I worked here for several years before leaving after I could no longer stomach the inexperience and naivete of management, as well as how they target Latino and Black students with deceptive information. President offers no leadership, is indecisive and out-of-touch with reality...is basically a puppet of the TCS president. Most administration are there to collect paychecks in exchange for turning a blind eye to the severe problems that permeate this place. Lavish spending on travel, events and board meetings are a priority. Stay away. Having this place on your resume has no value.
lots of free food and left over flower arrangements
Adjunct Professor (Former Employee) – DC – May 12, 2015
The administration of the Chicago School did not display a true concern or goal for the student's enrolled. By advocating for students administration created false information in order to justify unfair employment practices.
Office Support - Admissions (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – August 10, 2014
I had the displeasure of working for this company years ago and I cannot tell you how happy I was to move on! A typical day consisted of unethical behavior, gossip, racism, favortism, professional bullying and unfair politics. African-American and Latino students and employees are often nothing more than targets. Looking back, the problem seemed to originate with upper management where the effects were experienced and perpetuated in all levels of Operations. Management (particularly HR) brushed the complaints that were so often hurled at them (via employees and third parties) under the carpet with financial settlements, low disciplinary measures, suspicious terminations and the old "blind eye". I would not recomend this organization to anyone... unless they were an investigator with the EEOC. BEWARE! If you are a student or professional with any level of moral or ethical decency, seek an organization that actually stands for DIVERSITY in education!
Great Compensation; Great Location, Lots of Discounts and Perks
Unethical Behavior, Lack of Diversity, "Questionable" HR Practices, No Team Players
Very focused on quality education for its students - both personally and professionally
Adjunct Faculty (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – December 27, 2013
I enjoy working with a diverse group of colleagues with varied backgrounds and experiences. It gives an opportunity to learn new ideas for possible implementation for my own teaching practices or in business related endeavors.
Good benefits but not all depts or campuses are created equal
Associate Director of Admission (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – August 2, 2013
I have a great, fun team and benefits are pretty good. However, our staff works the most as compared to other depts, even though we are supposed to have comparable work hours. The nature of our business makes it a challenge to take time off and the work can be repetitive. Yet, the people around me are bright and it would behoove the institution to cultivate internal talent. I've learned a lot in terms of director management, budgets, and marketing.
Good health & retirement benefits
Poor work-life balance for admission staff, vacation approval can be a challenge
