Pros: you work from home
Cons: low pay, no training, no room for advance, management is terrible, the turnover rate is high, and absolutely no longevity
The pay is low. Management is horrible. The training is even worse. The university is very disorganization. It's a lot of we will figure it out when I happen. There is not communication between the vendors (Microsoft, Cisco, CIW, etc). A lot of the third party testing material is not in the Course of Study given to the students. The university is growing faster than management can keep with. A lot of the managers have absolute no management skills. In order for the university to stay a float, it going to have to hire real directors and managers with experience in their actually field. Most who are promoted are only in management because of who they know in the university. There is a lot of work that needs to be done to make this organization a place where someone can retire from this university. The turnover rate is extremely high. This is not a place where the average worker stays for over two years. If you make it to five consider yourself, one of the few. If you are in need of a job apply. However, once you get in never stop looking. Do not make WGU your only place of employment. If you get another job, WGU wants you to report it. Work of advice, they will tell you your work performance is dropping. Please let go of your other job, or leave WGU. DON'T QUIT YOUR OTHER JOB! WGU does not believe in longevity.
