    I worked at Corinthian Colleges (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent benefits and there were a lot of good people employed. I have to use a minimum of 20 words but I don't have 20 words to use in the "pro" section of this survey.

    Cons

    Shady enrollment practices to start with. Also, management always spent their time trying to figure out how to get around policy to keep students enrolled. They took chances on audit findings, and would often keep students enrolled just to meet their drop budget. All they were interested in was keeping students in seats. They didn't care about policy, they didn't care about auditors, and they didn't care about quality of education. In fact, education was a joke. The fail rate of students was horrible. More than half the students didn't pass all their courses in their first semester. The courses were crap and there were no prep courses to build into more advanced courses. The school *did* prey on students who had no chance for success; these were students who were taken in by promises of a rich, dynamic career when in reality their degrees would only qualify them for the most basic entry level position. Also, the school was so focused on enrolling students and making money that (while I was there) holidays were basically eliminated. They were working towards moving into a 24/7 call center environment. Bottom line: enroll the student and keep them there no matter what.

    Advice to Management

    I was glad when several campuses got shut down. I hope the new campuses that were bought out focus on quality of students and quality of the program. I also hope integrity is their driving motivator.
