    Pros

    Some terrific programs with good job placement. A dedicated instructional staff. Some very good administrative staff.

    Cons

    Ownership was out of their element trying to run a for-profit carer school. Did not allow knowledgeable staff to assist and get the job done right.

    I worked at American Career Institute full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    As an American Career Institute employee you will be stretch and pushed out of your comfort zone. You're bandwidth will be expanded and you will learn way more than you planned. Major Benefit!!

    Cons

    The workload can become overwhelming if you aren't mindful of what is on your plate. Urgent assignments can come from any direction and any moments. Thats not always fun!

    Advice to Management

    Managers, do not be afraid to get your hands dirty, especially if the task is urgent! The goal is to get it done, not just to pass on down your "subordinates"

    I have been working at American Career Institute part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The staff was very friendly and the place had comfortable approach for anyone who came. I did not have any major problems with this company and the resources were helpful online.

    Cons

    Some people were not being serious as they should have been and Finance needed help. They stopped have information technology classes in the day and making it part time only.

    Advice to Management

    This company would have stayed open if there was better structure and reliability with trust.

    Pros

    Good Pay Clean Building Great Director Local The good students made it worth it

    Cons

    Employee Moral very low Incapable Managers Drama among employees Unrealistic Expectations Poor Student Quality They expect you to work long hours for no extra recognition

    Advice to Management

    I had a feeling this company was going under from the first week of work there. Poor management, especially the quality of managers in place. CEO was a nightmare of a woman and had no respect for her empoyees, along with no social skills. Not surprised they went bankrupt.

    I worked at American Career Institute full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I had a good experience with the teachers in my department. I felt they were all strong teachers, and cared for their students. I was encouraged by them and look forward to seeing them soon.

    Cons

    I feel as though the administrators could have done more to keep us informed of the financial difficulties the company was under. Towards the end, we really were left high and dry, with very little information.

    Advice to Management

    I hope for the best for everyone who was involved in ACI. It was a good place to work and I am truly sorry to not have the opportunity to teach the students I have grown close to.

    dedicated staff who cared about their students

    Cons

    upper management provided no support for which the dedicated staff could perform

    Advice to Management
