Only hire adjunct faculty to never pay benefits.
Adjunct Professor (Former Employee) –  Parma, OHApril 12, 2019
Had a high turnover of adjunct faculty because they had to find work that paid benefits. Too many hours needed to be an effective instructor but was only paid for 12 a week and worked probably 40+ every week.

Associate Instructor-Legal Studies Department (Former Employee) –  Richmond, VAMarch 20, 2019
Great place to work if you are new to teaching. Some of the students from poor areas are the best and work very hard. Many students have Bryant and Stratton pride. Graduation ceremonies are the most uplifting for students and their families. Security on campus students need ID to enter the building. Expensive for profit college for students who may never pay off 20-25k for AA degree. Better accredited than most for profit colleges. But no room for advancement. One issue that was problematic was recruiters lie to students about different jobs. (You cannot become an FBI agent with an AA degree) (You cannot be a probation officer if your sealed juvenile record included attempted murder).
Pros
Training, student centered learning
Cons
Questionable recruitment of students from poor communities.

Academic Advisor (Former Employee) –  Liverpool, NYMarch 7, 2019
BSC had great students and staff. This was a great place for me to start a career in higher education and I was able to grow. Ultimately I left because I wanted more opportunities for advancement and I found my manager to not be supportive of my successes or advancement.

Don't waste your time
Admission Advisor (Current Employee) –  Orchard Park, NYMarch 7, 2019
You stay for the people you work with, but honestly everything else is a mess. The people that matter are so focused on the wrongs things, they don't realize how miserable their employees are. Very little advancement despite what they tell you, unfair pay comparisons, very stressful and goal oriented.

This is a great starter job if you don't mind working in an office setting, but otherwise don't waste your time.

Militant, Micro-managerial, Unethical, Unskilled, Unorganized
Academic Advisor (Former Employee) –  Orchard Park, NYMarch 5, 2019
The hours are 8am - 5pm 4 days a week with an hour off for lunch. You have a 12pm - 9pm shift one weekday each week, and some Saturdays sometimes 4 hours, sometimes 8 hours.

Expectation is to call, email, and text blast students every day, especially for attendance. Think call center more than Advising. Also responsible for course registration, and heavy data entry.

There is no professional development. No affiliations. No PD dollars. No conferences.

The work place environment is suffocating. No professional license. Scripts for everything. They'd chain you to your desk if it were legal. No more than 2 photos in your half cube. No polos before Memorial Day or after Labor Day. Cameras everywhere inside the building, for watching employees. Employees get tracked daily for clock in, number of inbound and outbound calls, length of call, voicemails delivered, content. VP sent out a mass email telling people how not to sit in their desk chair. No lie. Also sent a link to an article that blasted diversity and holistic education to make for profit look good. Director preaches corporatism over education.

Admissions brings in anyone and everyone and the company provides little to no assistance for these extremely at risk students. Students are often unreachable by phone or email. Many are often confused about basic fundamentals. Many cannot navigate a computer, or better yet, some don't even have one. When enrollment is high but graduation percentage is in the teens, there are many red flags.

Executives don't know management 101. Sloppy, unorganized, inconsistent processes
  more... and procedures. This is not higher ed. It's a lifeless corporate machine. Nearly everyone wants to leave.  less

Good co-workers

Nursing Skills Lab Assistant - Work Study Student (Former Employee) –  Wauwatosa, WIMarch 1, 2019
I thoroughly enjoyed my time as a Nursing Skills Lab Assistant. It was fast-paced, which I love! It was a great experience to be able to help other students with the skills they were learning, not to mention it help me refresh my own skills having to teach it to fellow students.

ADMISSIONS REP (Current Employee) –  Syracuse, NYJanuary 19, 2019
No one person makes decisions, they try and pone everything on someone else. Their is no clear plan in place, as long as you make goal everything is A okay. If you don't make goal it is the end of the world.

Co Instructor Model is Unfair to Adjuncts
Adjunct Professor (Former Employee) –  OnlineJanuary 3, 2019
Bryant & Stratton engages in a co-instructor model for online adjuncts which ensures neither teacher makes a fair wage and that classroom sizes are too large. If you are a co-instructor expect $1000 a term but you still have at least 10 + hour a work of grading and discussion responsibilities if you are the primary you get $1500 and expect at least 20 hours per week, often more and you have the majority of grading and discussion board and outreach. The company focuses on micromanagement and requires unpaid faculty meetings. I wish management would listen to faculty and consider a more equitable system, something as simple as paying one teacher $2500 per course and limiting class sizes would make this a much better place to work for. And lowering response rate on discussion boards to closer to 75 percent instead of 100. The focus on micromanagement makes it difficult and ends up in a large amount of administrative work. Students are not your typical student so they require a great deal of extra assistance.
Cons
low pay
