Admissions Advisor

Admissions Counselor (Current Employee)
Chicago, IL (US)

I have been working at Chicago School of Professional Psychology full-time for more than a year

ProsGood work-life balance, flexibility, relatively low stress,

ConsSometimes it can be a "What have you done for me lately environment" although I think this is true of most admissions roles. I do like it better than working in for-profit. The admissions standards for students are fairly rigorous compared to for-profits which seems like everyone can get in

Advice to Senior ManagementRemember to look at the year to date performance - not just last week's performance

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

The Chicago School Reviews

Assistant Professor (Current Employee)
Chicago, IL (US)

I have been working at Chicago School of Professional Psychology full-time for more than 3 years

ProsI really enjoyed how close I currently am located to the chicago school. Despite it being in a great location, i was really able to excel in the programs.

ConsI wish I would have chosen to attend TCSPP before spending so much money on an out of state private college during my first year of teaching going back and forth.

Advice to Senior ManagementI would suggest adding more programs in more obscure areas of psychology. This could be of interest to those creative types who are looking to enter the field.

A challenging environment in mostly good ways striving to do the right things well

Faculty (Current Employee)
Chicago, IL (US)

I have been working at Chicago School of Professional Psychology full-time for more than a year

ProsIntellectual stimulation, sincere faculty, appreciative students, some flexibility, and a nice River North campus are the best parts of this organization. This organization strives to do right by all its stakeholders.

ConsToo much bureaucracy combined with a lot of student needs and demanding curriculum make for a difficult and less than predictable workload at times.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou are getting too top-heavy and creating pressure on the producers

TCS, not the best

Student Services Advisor (Current Employee)
Chicago, IL (US)

I have been working at Chicago School of Professional Psychology

ProsThe entry-mid level staff at TCS is wonderful. They are all intelligent, engaged, and focused on making the student experience a better one. There is a lot of networking to be done with the staff. Every third Thursday, the School hosts a beer/wine/appetizer happy hour from 4-5. It's a great way to mingle with other departments. They also offer "summer hours" which is 8 work ours off every 2 weeks in June & July.

ConsOrganizationally, it's very top heavy and departments are run by people who have little to know exposure/experience in higher education. Unless you work in the academic side, do not expect a promotion or recogniztion of your skills and accomplishments. Those in the services side of the fence, are often compared to flight attendants and expected to act as such. I was told that "teaching only happens in the classroom" and that anyone else should not try to educate students - virtually sending ancillary and student services back into the dark ages. There is no support for professional development and no room for mobility. THe pay here is the lowest I've ever seen in higher education.

Advice to Senior ManagementAppreciate your staff tangibly with a bonus/raise structure and have a look at the pay for your entry level employees. Support employees and increase their morale as they are charged with the retention of your students. Train management as needed and stop congratulating those that do poor work.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
