No benefit for the loyal and commited
Quality Assurance Analyst (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – November 6, 2016
When I started working here, everyone seemed happy and loved their jobs. As the years progressed, and after John Sperling passed, people seemed more stressed. I worked there for several years, always told I was doing a great job, and given praise continuously, but had the lowest pay compared to those who worked there for a year or two. Promotions depended on how much the person interviewing you liked you. I interviewed for management jobs, but the interviewers were obviously not paying attention to what I was saying and I didn't feel I was taken seriously. I loved working there because of the work life balance and the ability to work from home. However, after 15 years and being diagnosed with a disability, I was let go with 6 weeks severance. I would have thought the severance would be more for all the time, loyalty, and kudos I've received. That is disappointing. If they asked me to come back, I don't know if I would because I would probably still make less than others. I do appreciate that I was able to complete my masters there, however I can only hope that it will help me reach my career goals, especially since it didn't help me while I was working there. As a suggestion, if you have enrollment advisers telling potential students the benefits of having a degree to increase income, the school should follow that line of thought with their own employees. Employees should be offered a pay increase if they receive their degree.
no room for advancement, unfair compensation.
