    Pros

    Ability to fool big corporations !!! Their sales team lie and convince fortune companies that they have good and qualified candidates.

    Cons

    Never pay their employees and subcontractors on time !!! None of their HR/Sales/Admin/Accounting staff is ever available. Their mailboxes are full and cant accept any messages. None of these staff ever bother to respond to any emails.
    Awful ..these guys need to be audited and shutdown.

    I worked at CORE Education & Consulting Solutions (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Management is so incompetent that you can pretty much do whatever you want.

    Cons

    Practically everyone here is not qualified with little to no background for their jobs.

    Can't even pay their own employees or office rent in Atlanta.

    Claims to value transparency, yet I've never seen a more "hush hush" atmosphere before.

    Lies to clients about what kinds of services are available and promises unreal time lines.

    Has absolutely no value in its loyal employees.

    Has slowly been failing for the past several years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just shoot the horse already.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at CORE Education & Consulting Solutions full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Decent work/life balance. Had an excellent immediate manager (VP) before he was laid off. Enjoyed office location and some co-workers.

    Cons

    Rampant nepotism even if the person(s) couldn't do the job. No advancement opportunities or pay raises. Didn't respect the employees and their expertise. Had trouble paying their employee's wages. Incompetent President with NO Management experience. Upper Management drained the funds from the most profitable division for their use. Laid off the most experienced and competent people. There was no discussions at all from management on how dire the situation was until they finally had to lay people off to pay their bills. A once promising company just ran into the ground.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire the incompetent management structures including the idiots in HR and bring in people that can run the company...though right now it's too little too late for this firm.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA

    I worked at CORE Education & Consulting Solutions full-time

    Pros

    Working in education with the ability to improve education and learning practices across the country. Nice vacation package. Remote work options and good work-life balance. Not too stressful unless a deliverable due date is approaching.

    Cons

    Limited resources including software purchasing capability. More of a who you know, than hiring people with the right skillset and experience. Limited "small" contracts and industry exposure. Question how many came to be in a management role. Leadership is lacking and without processes throughout the organization. Most work is just done with little to no direction or clear path. As a consulting company, most hired have little consulting experience which could explain their inability to obtain new clients and keep the small number of current clients happy. Main goal is to get by, not to excel. A lot of low quality off shore development work. But you get what you pay for.

    Promotions... what promotions? Raise... what's a raise? Benefit package is not the best. High premiums with high out of pocket costs. Salary is decent but expect to stay at that salary for a while.

    Limited growth opportunities with limited contracts and being a small company. Most people stay there because they are comfortable and probably won't get the same title or pay in a real consulting company. It's unlikely you'll grow much because there is no clear growth path. They just started a personal development process with annual goal setting recently. So that can tell you how much they care about your career growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more people with the right skillset and experience to operate in a consulting role. Hire management that knows how to effectively manage a project and staff. Have a clear direction and expect excellence from ALL employees. Should be more concerned about the quality of products delivered to clients.

    I worked at CORE Education & Consulting Solutions

    Pros

    Company ad enabled me to find what could have been an ideal job for me.

    Cons

    Had no contact from CORE for over a year. Not clear when my financial obligation to them was fulfilled and when I could negotiate as a free agent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep track of your employees, and support them if they are experiencing difficulties in their placement, Inform employer and employee when contractual financial obligations have been fulfilled.
