    Good benefit package but high deductables on medical.

    Cons

    You work more than what you get paid. Over time is not allowed however there is always a meeting or tutoring a student during planning time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    GIve your teachers a raise and more planning time.

    Pros

    Great benefits, reasonable managers, reasonable expectations, friendly environment. There were a few changes in management while I was working at Concorde, but those changes did not negatively affect me at any point. I felt the transitions were relatively seamless. I left to pursue other career goals, but I would recommend this company to a friend seeking employment in IT in Mission, KS.

    Cons

    I don't know? I wished there were less pizza and donut staff rewards and more fruit and vegetable tray staff rewards. Not really a con though, I guess. I gained 20 lbs working there...so maybe the primary con is that you may gain weight if your department does well and you can't say no to free food. I don't know, man. I liked it there and have no complaints.

    I worked at Concorde Career Colleges

    Pros

    There are no pros to add.

    Cons

    Everything, this place is so unorganized its disgusting. Do not work here. You will not be respected, if you are good at your job they will take advantage of you. If you are not good at your job, don't worry they won't fire you. They only fire the worthwhile people. The corporate office leads everyone despite not understanding anything that goes on at the schools. I feel bad for the students, they get talked into loans that they will never be able to afford. It is an awful institution and I believe this is the next school the Federal Government should come after.

    Leadership has no integrity and the instructors are continuously undermined by the campus president.

    Pros

    The hours are great. I enjoy having holidays.

    Cons

    There is no accountability for students or instructors that choose not follow policy and procedures. Nursing students are lacking basic education such as math and reading comprehension. Yet they are pushed through the program. Nursing requires critical thinking and nursing isn't for everyone and anyone who coughs up the money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The focus should be on providing a quality education to students who are competent enough to do basic math and can read. Instead the only focus is on money.

    Pros

    The company is mission based with a strong set of values that are well understood at the senior management and middle management level.

    Cons

    The proprietary education industry is highly regulated with more regulation likely to be developed by congress for the industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Expand product offering and locations for scale purposes.

    Pros

    Little supervision, autonomy, I honestly don't think I have many positive words for my experience with this company.

    Cons

    Zero training for employees, feel guilty that students pay high dollars for entry level jobs, the caliber of the people who work here is questionable at best, very shady practices.
