    CBT is a fast paced and ever changing environment that cares about its students

    I worked at College of Business Technology full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are always new things to focus on and the job is never boring. There is great interaction between departments and the employee's are generally good people. Upper management genuinely cares about the student experience and constantly seeks improvement

    Cons

    On the surface, the college does not compensate the average employee fairly. Many of the policies regarding compensation, overtime, vacations, etc. are unfairly balanced against the average worker. There is a definite lack of training for new employees and management is not held accountable for poor decisions or actions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Diversify upper management gene pool. If CBT is to get out of the "Small Business" mindset and push the envelope, CBT needs more diversity. The employee's see the interaction between upper management and can feel when the tension is very high.

    I worked at College of Business Technology full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Not as bad as other vocational schools in Miami for admitting utterly and hopelessly unqualified students. You could say CBT is best of the worst.

    Cons

    The nepotism is corrosive, blatant and shameless. Don't think for one moment that your efforts will be appreciated. Career advancement is impossible to those who are not blood related to the owners. Positively medieval. The school is run like a Mom & Pop hotdog stand. Compensation is the lowest among any other South Florida technical school. There is no employee training and the political environment created by the owners / administrators reveals a callousness that is truly maddening.

    There is absolutely no reason to work here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sell the school now. You've made your millions, and now it's time to enjoy your ill gotten gains.

    Pros

    Probably a campus close to your home so your commute may be very short.

    Cons

    Poor salary, meager benefits ($500.00-700.00 a month to add a spouse to your health plan), firings take place regularly and usually without notice - at least twice a month on average. Highly unskilled and ignorant upper management, including the owners. This company actively engages in nepotism and cliques develop within campuses creating a hostile work environment filled with gossip. Only 3 vacation OR sick days a YEAR are allowed and very few holidays are observed. Lots of extra-curricular work days on weekends and evenings required as well. When they post a job, they don't even identify their company name, this is a clue that they are well aware of their reputation! A previous reviewer wrote "family oriented" - the correct term for this is nepotism - as well as the presence of intolerant religious leanings by owners. This is also one of the worst managed companies I've ever seen and is actually worth and academic study. It would be worth it for Business schools at universities to use this company as an example of what NOT to do in almost every aspect!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop trying to pretend you care about your employees, it is incredibly fake and annoying and everyone sees right through it (except maybe all your relatives which you've given jobs to). Employee retention is your biggest problem. Offer a better work environment, better salaries, better benefits, and you'll get better quality employees you can train and work with, but the complete turn over of all your staff every year is your greatest downfall.

    Pros

    An opportunity to use my skills and help others succeed.

    Cons

    CBT only likes to pay the cheapest wages possible. Even if you have the skills, it does not matter, pay minimum wage to someone with less skills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need a large amount of money dedicated to library resources for students and faculty.
