Working at Strayer

From what my former colleagues have told me that are still employed there, they have cut campus staff tremendously. Depending on the size of the campus, there is only 1 full time rep in the Business Office handling all duties in a day (Opening/Closing Register, assisting students on the phone/in ... read more

Just a matter of time? Or will workers resist?

For those IT people still at Strayer, how much time do you think you have left before you will be unloaded? Is there anything you plan on doing to slow down the process (resistance)? Has anyone talked about organizing with a trade union? Have you seen the latest issue of CyberTrend? It sounds like ... read more

Axed in 2009

I do not regret it. The pay is really bad for the work load employees are expected to complete, there is an absolute focus on enrollments and there is no work-life balance at Strayer. If you are looking forward to working for almost minimum wage and being stressed out all time then go ahead and ... read more

Are Strayer Employees Being Silenced?

After having a conversation with a current Strayer instructor, I was informed that workers sign a contract that disallows them from speaking poorly of the company. Has anyone else felt censored by Strayer or been concerned about the repercussions of speaking out or organizing?

It should be Disney University and his best friend she is just as worst. Shareholders ... read more

In the recent layoffs they got rid of one of the better vice provosts and kept one of the absolute worst. Wonder who she was sleeping with.

Funny to listen to people complain about this company. They paid your salary for years.
