Ashford University Employee

"I have worked for Ashford for almost three years and have unfortunately found it to be a company driven by the need to make a profit and not by ethical practices with regard to employees or students. Faculty are not respected and many students are admitted without the skills needed to succeed."

Student Account Coordinator
in San Diego, CA

"This company drastically underpays overqualified employees for obscene amounts of work while not rewarding those who consistently deliver hard work and results. Additionally, as an educational institution, they do not reward those with higher levels of education; there are several examples of subordinates having higher-level and better quality educations than their managers and even VP's. To make matters worse, there is no advancement with this company unless you know somebody."

Admissions Counselor
in Denver, CO

"Ashford University Admissions is Sales. You have minimal control of the leads that you get and are expected to perform with what you get. Job security is non-existent, the turn over rate is incredible. Good pay and benefits, but not a good job for people without natural sales ability."

"While the people at Ashford are very supportive, the environment is very high stress. Turnover is extremely high, so longevity is not likely for most employees. If you are successful, it can be a good place to work."
