Started in 2011, ended in 2014 as a result, of all things, from being promoted. Did my job to the best of my abilities and found the clientele a joy to deal with and interact. This plus being accepted by some of my colleagues and a good number of my coworkers, made the transition from tech to lead very rewarding. But, with all good things, there was bad. I'll just label it, the Dean's office! It was the place where you just had to tip toe through, well, everything! The admin manager, she is, was, is the real issue. Doesn't help when you promote a culture like the one she promoted. Just not healthy. That said, would do it EXACTLY the same way again, being that I really did get a lot done!
I suspect the company has a very positive corporate culture that did not seem to filter into the admissions department. This department, filled with caring, educated professionals, was sadly, in my opinion, working with a micro-management mentality that exhibited a controlling and disrespectful attitude toward employees.
In my opinion, over controlling micro-management toward education, professionals but may have been department rather than company. Saying yes to company CEO recommendation in light of insight only with departmental experience. Left before I could have a fulfilling professional experience.
