    I have been working at Career Education as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    The IT culture has gone through transformation with the management that is highly tuned in empowering the team to embrace best software practices with Agile development, encouraging collaboration and delivering high quality software solutions/products for great student educational experience. CEC also has good compensation, benefits, good work-life balance, opportunities for career growth and it has become fun environment.

    Cons

    Being such a large corporation, there are some existing processes in place that can make it challenging sometimes to accomplish some tasks. There is also a large number of contractors in the workplace and there is plethora of complex software systems and services driving everything, which can make it overwhelming or hard to track down things.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to bring about the positive changes in the workplace and help regain the business's faith in the IT to provide quality deliverables.

    Interview Details

    Interview process was pretty detailed. The process was half a day. I met with the area sales director and the sales manager. Several applicants that were there for the interview. Many hours spent during the interview process and I was about to walk out during a video portion of it. I ended up staying and finished it. I wound up actually taking a position there.
