23% of the CEO
Scott W. Steffey
Pros – Good pay; good co-workers; company does employee events such as holiday parties, and gives permission for departments to hold their own celebrations; there can be some flexibility with work hours to give a slightly better work/life balance.
Cons – Policies vary across the company and are hard to keep track of; training is not comprehensive across the board; bureaucracy can get in the way of solutions being implemented; no real potential for advancement in my particular department.
Advice to Senior Management – Make sure you hire the right person for the right job, in regards to employees, managers, and higher-ups. Enforce standardized policies across all schools and levels of business.
Pros – They try to make it a fun atmosphere to work in
Cons – Non flexible schedule, low pay, and management doesn't know how to accurately target customers.

Pros – As far as technology to deliver an educational solution to the student, there are few if any that can compete with the platform.
Cons – CEC is great at promises during the recruiting process. Sadly, it doesn't turn into reality, ever. The company (and it is a company) has lost focus on the students and the only thing that matters is the bottom line. The leadership in the company is lacking and the strategic vision of the corporation is unknown. Layoffs are very common place and the work of the displaced employees is never back filled. The company is also highly political and if your opinion is to the contrary, you've limited your career potential.
Advice to Senior Management – Be honest with employees, be honest with prospective students and be honest with yourself.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
Pros – Pay was good
Hour long lunch
Cons – Micromanagement
Diploma mill for their students
No place for advancement
They put in place these attendance points that if you were late by 1 minute you would get points deducted. It was so stupid.
New CEO laid everyoneoff without notice
Advice to Senior Management – Don't micromanage people. Everything isn't about numbers.
Pros – The main benefit of working here is that you can get a foot in the door and some experience before moving on
Cons – The corporation will not show loyalty to you; once I realized this by seeing how it treated others, I made sure to get out asap. The entire for-profit education industry is constantly under federal scrutiny, and in my opinion takes advantage of those who don't know any better; the business model is completely unstable; very very high turnover
Advice to Senior Management – Be sure to communicate better to your employees; do not point fingers or play the blame game
Pros – Good Comrades
The staff here have to really stick together if not Management will
Cons – Worst Management
The company is the epitome of the worst of corporate education
Advice to Senior Management – They will never concede to listen
The management and culture is totally deceitful
nothing as it is explained or written
Pros – benefits, location, ok as an entry level position
Cons – bad management, low salaries, frat house atmosphere, hard to transfer the experience to other more professional positions
Advice to Senior Management – Start acting like a boss and stop going to pretend meetings to occupy your time

Pros – Worked with modern IT technologies
Many advancement opportunities (due to turnover)
Cons – Poor management of human capital
Outsourced jobs to India, China, Philippines
Advice to Senior Management – Get a better handle on employee workload, distribute it more evenly
Pros – Good opportunity for entry level college faculty. Anyone who would like to get their first opportunity as college faculty member could get some experience here.
Cons – Constant course schedule changes make it difficult to hold onto faculty for more than a semester. The pay is low for the faculty about half of what they could be paid at a traditional college.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
Pros – Fair compensation and benefits in this market. Management is supportive of its employees. Employees are dedicated to their tasks at hand, skilled staff and passionate instructors. The student population can be delightful.
Cons – Corporate seems to have little understanding of how things work at each individual campus. In an attempt to standardize policies and procedures across all campuses, they fail to recognize that some markets have special needs in order to be successful.
