    Positive experience and opportunities with the company

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Phoenix, AZ

    ProsMultiple locations around the company, great product - education, great employee benefits, opportunities to grow in different career areas with the company.

    ConsLots of changes in senior leadership, leaders aren't visible to the employees around the country, decisions are sometimes made in a vacuum at the corporate offices and not vetted with the managers in the field who are closest to the business and our customers.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHold more open employee roundtables, walk the floor, get out of your offices in the tower, listen, communicate, create a positive environment so we can truly be a "best place to work!"

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Great Place to Work

    Adjunct Instructor (Current Employee) Virginia Beach, VA

    ProsI submitted an application for an adjunct position and was called for an interview. When I interviewed with the Dean, we talked about the school and the students. I was asked about my teaching philosophy and my comment level to quality education. I was hired on the spot and asked to fill out background check paperwork and other human resource related documents. I have been with them for about a year now and love working for this company. The management is easy to work with regarding schedule and they provide a professional work atmosphere.

    ConsI have not found anything negative to report.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
