    Pros

    The people I worked with were great. They were open and engaging and we worked well together. I loved the flexibility of working in the field, on job sites, meeting people, and changing their lives for the better. They also provided excellent benefits.

    Cons

    Maintaining student enrollment, maintaining quotas, cost of tuition was high for those who did not have employer reimbursement or financial aid options.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management is on a progressive track. They understand the business of education without sacrificing the integrity of the academic programs.

    They've been hit by regulatory pressure and significant market competition and need to stay nimble and make drastic changes to stay competitive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the company private again to focus on long-term strategy and move away from the tyranny of the quarterly shareholder earnings report.

    Pros

    Strong up to date insightful, encouraging management. Cutting edge administration years ahead of competitors which consistently encouraged employees to seek out opportunities to improve.

    Cons

    It is easy to over extend your efforts because the Mission is exciting and rewarding. You must pace yourself a little because you want to continue working later and later.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue in an excellent path. Keep innovative industrious practices and continue to remove those which don't aid and abet the mission of excellence.
