    I have been working at Bryant & Stratton College full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    There is a good training program when you start and we meet regularly with our managers regarding how we can develop. The management team involves us in decisions.

    Cons

    Some managers can do a better job of coaching but senior managers are investing in them to do so.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep investing in your employees and look for ways to continue to appreciate us.

    I have been working at Bryant & Stratton College part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The administration always supports the faculty in their time of need. They offer flexible course schedules. The student-teacher ratio is wonderful, and it allows the faculty members to connect with students and give them full time and opportunity to master the materials taught in the courses. The courses allow faculty flexibility in making assignments.

    Cons

    There is too much administrative stuff going on. A lot of standardized tests and programs are implemented, at the cost of class time provided by instructors. Instructors who work part time are not rewarded for their hard work and effort with the students. Instructors who have clearly been failing to meet the necessary standards for student achievement fly under the radar and are not held accountable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensation should be evaluated on a more regular basis. The administrative tests and programs should be implemented separately on student time by a proctor and not take away from valuable class time.

    I worked at Bryant & Stratton College full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Friendly faculty and staff who have a passion for what they do
    Sound curriculum
    Accreditation

    Cons

    Admissions is the "golden" department, and the majority of our all associate meetings focus on praising them.
    Benefits are high in cost and low in coverage
    Unethical managers
    Leaders who do not build relationships with their teams
    Salary is not in compensation for all of the required tasks
    The culture has changed over the many years I was employed here. It went from a family atmosphere to a "dog-eat dog-world"!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management,
    I was employed at Bryant & Stratton for many years. At one time I looked forward to coming to work. This definitely changed for me and the majority of my co-workers. We were expected to retain a high number of students, but the admissions standards and tactics are unethical and deplorable! There needs to be a focus of attracting students who desire a higher education, and not just a refund check. When management makes decisions, it is imporant to consider how it affects the employees who are actually doing the job. Retention is a campus wide directive not just the focus of one department. Employees salaries should be a representation of all their assigned duties. Furthermore, a closer eye needs to be placed on the doings of certain department managers. It is "do what I say, not what I do"!!

    I have been working at Bryant & Stratton College full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The new CEO is raising the bar for everyone at the college. Overall, the management is focusing on increasing the morale and investing in the employees. There is some work to do but I am confident the new CEO will make it happen.

    Cons

    Some ways of thinking and use of systems are out dated. The good news is that the new leadership is increasing accountability and asking "why". Good things to come.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing. Continue listening to the employees and over-communicate. It will take some time to turn things around but I am confident it will happen.
