    I have been working at Corinthian Colleges full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Training was thorough. They put a lot of time into making sure you understand company protocol. There was a lot of opportunity to advance within the company.

    Cons

    The company seemed to have a bad reputation, as one of the biggest for-profit organizations. At the time, a lot of things were changing around, and we had to tighten up protocol, so there was a lot of pressure on employees to adapt quickly.

    My teammates were awesome I had a very informed boss that I reported to the vacation packages and benefits were great I was reimbursed for a lot of things that I've done with the company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your employees informed 1st about company policies and procedures or about anything dealing with the company Instead of us finding out throughout the news are the Internet

    I have been working at Corinthian Colleges full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good work/home balance, decent benefits and wonderful co-workers. I actually enjoyed working for my bosses and for the company overall, which is why I stayed so long.

    Cons

    Favoritism rampant, no salary increases, skeleton crew. Company is trying to sell its business units with no luck. Company greed killed the business.

    Pros

    The pay is pretty decent

    Cons

    They trick innocent victims into shelling out LOTS of money for a lousy (fake almost) education where they have a VERY low chance of acquiring a career. Sell them the American Dream that they have no chance of obtaining. Use government funded loans to fill the rest.

    Advice to Management

    They don't want advice. They are laughing their way to the bank.

    Pros

    Great people to work with at this location. Everyone here is hoping that new ownership will "change some things".

    Cons

    Silly paperwork, questionable management ethics with a proprietary school.

    Advice to Management

    Look at the long term, go for quality over quantity and have some admissions standards rather than running admissions like a used car sales lot. Hopefully the new ownership will clean house in upper management and get in leadership that cares about the quality of the brand. Speaking of that, the brand name definitely needs to be changed, this one is pretty damaged.


  11. A once-decent company slowly marred by a bad business model.

    I worked at Corinthian Colleges full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    When the right people were in place, it ran steadily well. Most of the people working there were there because they genuinely wanted to help students.

    Cons

    Realizing that charging so much for a degree really isn't necessary, and having to deal with all the bad press and negative publicity surrounding the complaints. The right people were never in place long enough to help make a real difference.

    Advice to Management

    If nothing seems to be going right or getting better, maybe it's time to start cleaning house from the top down, instead of vice-versa.
