    I worked at Corinthian Colleges full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Excellent pay and benefits while they last

    Cons

    In Admissions they do have very unreasonable "goals" actually quotas , they just want them in and do not care about the best interest of the student. They want you to pressure them with no let up and they in turn pressure you with no let up. If you are willing to compromise on integrity then it may be for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bottom line should always be best interest of students, encouraging honesty and not quotas and threats.
