Decline to State (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – July 17, 2018
CDU is unlike any institution I've studied or worked at. It's a small institution (less than 1,000 students) composed of three buildings and mostly graduate students. This is in CDU's favor as the Dean of Student Affairs' Office is already unable to meet basic demands of students. The Division leaders are reactive (not proactive), do not act in the best interest of the students, and advise staff to just do the bare minimum to get by. This is an absolute disservice to the community which is already undeserved and exploited.
CDU is a place where good people leave and the mediocre stay. It's a shame considering there is a great need for institutions like CDU and the university has so much potential. My advice? Replace current Dean of Student Affairs' Office managers with individuals who see their role as more than collecting a paycheck. incompetence
Dean of Student Affairs Office; stress; incompetence
Administrative Assistant/Receptionist (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – October 5, 2018
SON was a great place to work at because of the wonderful co-workers but, I don't think I would go back there unless I was given a huge raise. There is lack of support for the employees, there is stress all around and the school is constantly changing deans. Good deans leave because the university as a whole sucks. Procedures are constantly changed and the blame for work falling through the cracks is blamed on the employees. There is not much I can say other than that the Provost needs to be let go, and so does the CEO/President of the University. New leadership is needed. Oh yeah, and forget about getting paid over time. You'll work over time, but you won't get paid for it.
Program/Project Coordinator (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – August 29, 2018
I have been working with the School of Nursing for almost 2 years and the journey has been nothing but painful. I have poured my heart and soul into this my position with this company, as I supported the former Dean/Director and now the current Dean and Director. The upper management has complete disregard for the staff that is the direct support, lifeline and drive of the school of nursing. We are under paid, over worked, devalued and lied to constantly. I have tried hard to support and stand up for this company but I can longer do so because of the strain is it is causing me mentally and emotionally. I would highly advise anyone that is thinking of applying to the School of Nursing at Charles R. Drew University, think twice. if you are looking to be stressed out, never appreciated, under paid and questioned as well as micro managed, then this company is for. I am not saying that everyone there is a wolf in sheep clothing, as we do have some good hard working staff. Increasing workloads but not offsetting compensation is immoral and show a lack of respect.
No lunch breaks, poor compensation, disrespect, no trust

Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – July 7, 2017
A typical day at work would be working with 40 to 50 students, from registration, completing the admission packet. Working along side the Director of the Program, making sure that her schedule and meetings times were set working along with staff and teaching instructors. creating travel arrangements for the Director also staff -
Making sure that all of the information gather through out the school year for the Accreditation was in place. I learned how to work smart and how to stay organized. The work place culture was energetic and fast pace. The hardest part of the job was having the Director give me the information that i needed to keep her on schedule. The most enjoyable part of the job was the students, seeing them finish the program and move to the next level, also the Travel with the Director.

They run in circles and only react they don't plan and get things done. They blame others for their own mistakes. A very unprofessional uncomfortable environment, don't waste your time. Everyone there hates working there. The Execs don't know their XXX from the hole in the ground.
