    Pros

    Pay was decent that's it.

    Cons

    Management treats employees very poor and unfair and cannot lead a team effectively. Lying to student about big opportunities when they are gonna end up in debt with no job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to respect your employees instead of talking down on them and learn some management skills and you will get better results

    Pros

    Great colleagues, Good Benefits, and Job Satisfaction.

    Cons

    Management creates undue stress due to poor management styles, We are always worrying if we are going to have a job, or even a pay-check.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a hard look at your management and start leading instead of dictating and playing favorites!

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule. You can telecommute. The company used to offer competitive salaries and great benefits.

    Cons

    Management is not organized. Too much politics. Too many managers while there are only few "working bees". No clear process to follow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please hire less managers and pay more to working bees.

    Pros

    There are some really great people at the company who sincerely want to help students with their educational goals.
    Tuition reimbursement is huge.
    Lots of activities and events planned for employees.

    Cons

    Inconsistent management failing to change with the times and really embrace their presence as an online entity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pick a direction, make solid plans to achieve your goals and then follow through. Constantly changing course does a huge disservice to your employees who genuinely are trying their best to achieve all the ever changing goals.

    Pros

    At campus level a great place to work. Our campus operated as a team to ensure the best quality school experience for our students. Hi energy fun place to work.

    Cons

    Lack of communication from corporate. organization chart was flatten so no room for growth. company going under. The USDOE forced the closing of 12 campuses and the selling of the remaining 85.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pat yourself o the back for creating and environment where nobody believes what you say anymore. Be for asking employee to take a 5 day furlong you might have consider handing over your six figure salary.
