Fun and productive place to work with, excellent staff, and great benefits.
Pros: good central location for main campus facility in austin; work independently and flexible hours.
Cons: some late or real early work times, not feeling like you are part of a normal college setting or program, because it is so alternative.
It's like working with a start-up business company, except it's in education. There is a thrill of working in something very valuable, helping students, administrators, and life-long learners with advancing their degrees in a unique and meaningful way.
Hardest part of the work is to connect with the students at times when they can dedicate time to the advising process and discussing their questions and needs. Also, it is hard for the Mentor sometimes
because their work may have to be done at a time that is inconvenient or early/late in the day.
Management is excellent, with many education professionals to work with who have great backgrounds and experience to add to the online program of learning and degree achievement.
