    Pros

    The CEO walks around and greets people in the mornings sometimes. He is very friendly and open. The people here are great to work with and very open to ideas.

    Cons

    There really isn't anything bad about working here. The people are nice, pay is good, convenient to highways and you are helping people better their lives.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just to keep doing what you are doing but try to focus more on updating things a little more.

    I worked at Allied Business Schools full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Quality courses, established company, decent benefits, overall good people

    Cons

    Low starting pay, no OT, chained to desk, tiered pay structure based on unrealistic numbers, some fools in management, instability all the way up to upper management - layoffs are common

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay better, show more concern for actual graduation rates than just pushing products, offer incentives for employees!

    Pros

    This company offers a lot of opportunities to those that work hard and put themselves out there to be part of the organization. You are not just another employee, you are part of the company where they are open to new ideas. Employees are all nice and seem happy in their jobs. Many employees have been able to move up within the company so that is good to see.

    Cons

    Not a lot of recognition to help staff keep up the motivation, but it is still a good place to work. Would like to see more things done to bring the employees together during work hours, such as lunches or meetings to get to know people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They do a good job, but it would be nice to see more involvement from the top management.

    Pros

    Do good sales then you'll get paid a little more.

    Cons

    There's a revolving door. If you don't meet your quota then you'll feel stressed about sales.

    Pros

    Open to new ideas, Ability to advance quickly if you prove yourself

    Cons

    Owners are short sited, no long term vision. You are only as good as your last week of sales.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is doing the best they can under the direction of the owners.

    I worked at Allied Business Schools

    Pros

    Benefits are good. They offer Health, Dental and Vision.

    Traditional 401K is offered with a 50% employer Contribution up to 5% of your paycheck
    Their pay is competitive and so they are overall a decent company.
    The environment is healthy, it's positive, fast pace and communication is encouraged and co-workers are friendly people so you actually have friends.

    Cons

    Management can be quick about making adjustments on staff size to maintain low cost but this can be relatively normal for all companies. Like many private schools, it's about making money just as much as educating the students so you may find some type of disagreements with the value and costs of the products offered

    Their pay scales are adjusted frequently which seem to limit the "true" income potential for the employee, need it's probably their assumed objective.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep pay scales the same even when the reps make progress, both parties can reap the rewards and everyone is happy.
