    I have been working at Ellucian full-time (More than a year)


    Great culture with terrific people who support and seem to genuinely care about each another. I have not worked at a company where people are so willing to help each other. The mission of supporting higher education is personally gratifying and people have conviction in the good of what customers are doing which helps breed this culture. The company does a good job of supporting employees and creating an environment that is welcoming, supportive and collaborative. People work hard, but work-life balance and flexibility is also valued which can be rare in technology companies.


    The industry (higher education) as a whole can tend to be late adopters, so the technology is not always on the cutting edge, although it is impactful. Because the industry is changing, Ellucian is having to adapt too, which sometimes leads to turnover of good people who have been at the company for a while. But it’s the right thing to do and management is doing well in managing through changes.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on the path – new management that has been brought in the past couple of year have been good additions. Now is the time to let consistency take hold so the company can stay focused a clear direction and execute.

    Contracts Administrator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Milton Keynes, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Ellucian (Milton Keynes, England (UK)).


    The interview took part in three stages. I submitted my CV to an online portal and was then called for a telephone screening interview by an internal Recruiter, which took place two weeks later and lasted around 30 minutes. The Recruiter asked me questions about my experience and explained a bit more detail about Ellucian and the role.

    Around two weeks later I undertook two face-to-face video-based interviews with the Hiring Manager and a potential colleague, who are both based in the US office. These interviews were approximately 20 minutes each and took place in the evening.

    I was then invited to a face-to-face panel style interview a week later with Counsel at Ellucian's office based in Milton Keynes. This interview lasted around 30 minutes and I was informed that I was the last of four candidates to interview at this final stage.
