  1.  

    Great

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Continuing Education of the Bar

    Pros

    The people there and the atmosphere are great. People are helpful and friendly, and care about each other. They have fun get togethers and celebrations for holidays sometimes as well.

    Cons

    I do have any any cons to speak of. I think the company is making some changes, which involve going more into the digital realm, which is a good thing.

  2.  

    I would recommend this company to someone with no ambitions.

    I have been working at Continuing Education of the Bar full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Close to public transportation. Allows for good work/life balance. Nice offices.

    Cons

    The company is hobbled by ancient systems and the inability to change. Strong on blaming, short on changing. Very frustrating place to work if you want to work and grow. The UC system is difficult to navigate and the "benefits" promised have not panned out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Manage. No output, no systems should = no job.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
