Only perk is good benefits
Academic Advisor (Former Employee) – Killeen, TX – July 14, 2019
Pros - great benefits, assistance with education, free gym access, holidays off, and I liked the work schedule where Fridays were half days.
Cons - poor management, understaffed and underpaid, lots of stress from students and management, no training - mostly learn as you go, frowned upon when trying to converse with colleagues or coworkers (no interaction between departments), and HR didn't help when I brought in my concerns.
Personally, I would not have relocated if I had known that they'd terminate me after a few months. Funny enough, one adviser had left prior to my termination, another left after, and one more already submitted papers about leaving in a few months so the department was short staffed which caused the student wait time to be an average 2-3 hours; the peak time of the year was also coming up which normally had students waiting 6-8 hours to see an adviser. Just glad I don't have to deal with the stress anymore but also sad to have been treated so poorly even after trying so hard and having invested so much time/effort only to be silently escorted out.
