Tense work environment, management always changing
Project Manager (former employee) (Former Employee) – Baltimore, md – January 26, 2013
The company still operates as a small organization even though it is very large. Management cannot get their act together to take the organization in one focused direction for a consistent amount of time and feel the way to solve a problem is to hire more high level managers while laying off the "worker bees." There is also very poor communication from the top down.
The parent company, laureate, is notorious in the industry for underpaying staff and not promoting employee advancement. While the health benefits are good, there is no actual human resources support. In my years there, there was never a person in HR I could go to for support or grievances. They are essentially set up to "hire and fire."
I know a lot if people within walden who felt extremely under appreciated. By the time I left, I would classify walden as having a toxic work environment for employees. I don't recommend working there if you want to develop a career and feel appreciated.
