    Pros

    The people were amazing, genuinely caring about students and each other. The work was challenging but very rewarding.

    Cons

    Ideological attacks on the whole sector, including Corinthian, make the future bleak, not only for employees, but for students and taxpayers. It's a shame a more informed discussion did not occur from the politicians.

    Pros

    CCi is a very professional company. One that focuses on their customer and their employees. They always do the right thing for both. It provides many opportunities to its employees; training, promotions and benefits. There are over 15,000 employees but the way they treat you, you wouldn't know it.

    Cons

    The only personal challenge I have experienced is traffic driving into work everyday. That isn't something that the company caused; I made the choice to commute every day. It was well worth it. I love my job, who I work for and with.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management is to keep on doing what you're doing for as long as you can. You are providing a tremendous education to students and a future they may not have been able to experience. Don't allow the regulators to make you look bad. You make professional, ethical decisions regarding students, employees and the future of the company every day.


  6. It was great making 100 outbound calls per day to students.

    Pros

    Pay was decent that's it.

    Cons

    Management treats employees very poor and unfair and cannot lead a team effectively. Lying to student about big opportunities when they are gonna end up in debt with no job.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to respect your employees instead of talking down on them and learn some management skills and you will get better results
