    Pros

    The people working there are great. It was a great opportunity to be able to really help students that did not think they could go to college or be anything in life. Very Fulfilling in that aspect.

    Cons

    I major issue was the lack of communication from upper management. Change is definitely inevitable, but keeping your employees informed of changes to come is paramount.

    Advice to Management

    To the Management, just try to communicate more effectively with your employees on the ground level. Leaving them in the dark is never a good idea.

    Pros

    Working with great individuals, helping students press forward in life and gain a competitive advantage.

    Cons

    Too many to list. I think their situation speaks for itself. Campuses are being shut down and people are losing their jobs because policies and procedures were not followed.

    Advice to Management

    Quit. Seriously. They shouldve quit a long time ago and the companies outlook may have been much different. Too busy county their money instead of working to help the company.

    Pros

    There are no pros for working here anymore. The organization was once profitable, but it it now a nightmare. Most people have quit already, the rest are being laid off. This used to be an alright place to work, but those days are long gone.

    Cons

    Constant layoffs, no more money, being shut down by the department of education. Flee from Corinthian/Zenith Education Group. The organization makes last minute decisions that put people's livelihood's in danger.

    Advice to Management

    I have no advice, the organization continues to crumble. Unfortunately Corinthian Colleges, Inc. is beyond saving. The parts of the company that are still operating will be close soon enough.


  8. Corinthian Colleges is a very fast pace environment.
