The people are great. They really are. Good people to work with and you are indeed helping others get an education. It is, despite the non-profit status, a lot like for-profit schools. If you don't hit a quota, you're fired. Ultimately, like so many schools, rather than trust that they will get the right people to fill their school due to the quality education, they do want you to talk people into a degree even if it isn't a clear fit. Standard for the industry though and why the industry (and sales so often) has a bad reputation. If it's not a 100% "no fit" then they expect an enrollment. That is the nature of the nature of the job unfortunately. However, again, the people are great! they really are and I loved interacting with them. It is also wonderful when it is a good fit and you can really help others.
people, being able to help others, education environment is great
insurance is sub-par in my opinion, it is sales so expect to push people
