I'm a current full time employee instructor at Brown Mackie Atlanta. All of the above mentioned comments on this forum and other numerous forums like Jobvent.com, still understate the current culture and environment at Brown Mackie. The admission department alone should be charged with fraud and literally lying to student to make commission sales and bonuses. All potential or new students are told that they transfer all of their units to actually universities and colleges. Unfortunately do to the humble backgrounds of the students (poor, homeless, single parents, illiterate, and mental disabilities), the student don't possess the know how to verify the information that they've been told. Admissions is completely predatory on unsuspecting student and bend over backwards to enroll any type of student.
On the education side of Brown-Mackie Atlanta, the leadership is completely lacking especially with the President Sydney, who behaves more a like a plantation owner than a true leader (I'll let you read in between the lines). Her knowledge about anything academic is truly lacking and she's would be lost without the help of the few legit department chairs. The culture at the school is very untrustworthy, where fellow faculty and especially the department looks to backstab and sully the reputations of the same co-worker they smile and converse with. Many of the department chairs are spies for the President and there's no real teamwork among those who should be pulling people together. Many of the department chairs are not qualified to lead a department let along teach at the school. Fortunately for the school, there exist many exception adjunct (part time) instructors who truly are skilled in the instruction of the students, but their hard work is undervalued and not appreciated. President Sydney promotes only those employees who brown nose and worship her humor and wardrobe. The career services department is a complete due to their lack of job placing newly graduated student, their main functions is standing in the hallway talking with students and appearing to work. The caliber of students has actually diminished and unfortunately these students who need actual teaching from adult learning facilities will never be given the help they need and will only collect more debt and be unable to be hired at a legit workplace.
The former dean quit in the middle of night and the school has been without a dean for 5 months. There's actually been new deans who were hired, but immediately rescinded their offer even the light of an instant raise. The lack of leadership, trust, competence, and morality is staggering. This is merely just a job to pay the bills for me while I look for a much better situation. This school should absolutely be invested for enrolling students who have no business attending a school and receiving federal financial aid. Here in the state of Georgia, a year bachelors from a real state university will run for about 24k for tuition over the 4 years. Brown Mackie's cost of education for their 2 year worthless and non-transferable associates degree is about 22k. These kids and adults are being swindled and hopefully something is done from reporting the dean for her incompetence to the shady department chairs (IT, paralegal, and surgical technology), and the cutthroat admissions. The pay does not justify the amount of work and the amount of headache one receives from working here. HR is also very cozy and in cahoots with campus President Sydney Brown Mackie Atlanta is a fraudulent institution and a breeding ground of amorality and an organization running the greedy scheme for the parent company EDMC.
All potential future student and employees beware
