Poor leadership from Top to Bottom
Admissions / Admin (Former Employee) – Austin – April 16, 2018
South University / The Dream Center is a poorly organized company. The organization is focused solely on enrolling new students, with little to no resources or time dedicated to actually serving the current student body and guiding them to their degrees. The turnover rate is high and the training is mostly non-existent. Most employees are learning on the job and do not have many resources to fall back on.
Leadership constantly promotes an atmosphere of enroll the student today or else, regardless of compliance, morals, or ethics. Almost half of the year is black out periods where employees cannot use their PTO. Also, employees are typically "asked" to work on scheduled holidays. Communication and direction is very rarely shared between the corporate office and the individual campuses. HR's response to many workplace issues was regularly slow and ineffective. Overall, I would not recommend South University to a friend or family member.
The building is nice and well maintained
