    Awful

    Admissions Advisor (Former Employee)

    ProsPay was decent that's it.

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

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    It's about the students. Their success is our success.

    Instructor (Current Employee) Portland, OR

    ProsPositive environment based on improving the lives of people who just need someone to believe in them.
    Enough resources to do the job

    ConsA for-profit college is certainly a different environment than a public institution, but the students who take advantage of what they are paying for get a great education.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease try to increase budgets for the tech programs. We can't deliver the best training without the tools! A dedicated IT lab with current equipment and resources would benefit the students immeasurably.

    Stable Organization equally committed to Values & Strategic Priorities

    Human Resources (Current Employee) Santa Ana, CA

    ProsExperienced & committed executive leadership team
    Company takes integrity issues & core values seriously
    Solid benefits package
    National company allows for a lot of internal transfers
    Company culture revolves around putting students first

    ConsProprietary education is a tough industry. For-profit schools are constantly under intense scrutiny and are always susceptible to regulations from Washington that are eternally changing. Also, because CCi is a publically-traded company, a lot of key initiatives must first receive approval from Board of Directors.
