    I worked at Ellucian full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Pay among the highest of project management professionals; remote work environment,

    Cons

    pressure to rack up billable hours; fully accountable for an unmanageable amount of projects; continued lip service about work life balance;

    Advice to Management

    Stop thinking in terms of billable hours for a project manager. Go to fixed price for the project management--we almost NEVER went under budget on project management and it was so difficult to go back to the client and ask for more -- usually do to Ellucian's mismanagement, underselling, software issues, constant turnover

    I have been working at Ellucian full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Ellucian is a great place to work because the culture is one of empowering employees to do their best and go beyond their expectations. The ability to manage the schedule of a busy family with a rewarding career is priceless. The executive team and people leaders at Ellucian understand that employees are committed to their work as well as their family. There are opportunities for everyone to grow and learn.

    Cons

    Ellucian is a good size company (just over 3000 employees). It can be easy to get lost in the shuffle.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Ellucian full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Co-workers generally committed to doing good work. Industry leader, industry leading conference (if you get to participate). Many positions remote eligible. Decent benefits but not industry leading by a longshot. Good compensation and time off benefits. New CEO might be a Pro, time will tell if it moves to the CON column.

    Cons

    Company divisions exist in several silos that are nearly impossible to cross when needed. Professional services utilization targets are very high, resources are overbooked as the norm. Little opportunity for movement once inside the company. Company seems to like change for the sake of change, nothing over the last 5-8 years has resulted in any significant growth. Mid and High level management is in duck and cover mode...

    Advice to Management

    Craft a vision and stick with it for a few consecutive years before yanking it out and trying something else.

    I worked at Ellucian full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great people - many are committed and work hard

    Cons

    Management constant shuffle. Good old club keep changing their positions to cover each others a$$ from their inability to deliver on their objectives. No follow through, not because teams couldn't do it, but rather because management has ADD

    Advice to Management

    Come up with reasonable goals based on a vision and allow the teams to execute.

    I have been working at Ellucian full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    None at this point in time. The outlook is bleak.

    Cons

    The company is too focused on profit, not on it's people. There continues to be many senior and highly skilled employees leaving the company.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employees! Actions speak louder than empty promises.
