    I worked at Education Affiliates full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    strong social value. Provides specialized training and or education for individuals who just don't fit in public education.
    some of their schools deal with the most high risk students,and have a great success in helping them improve their
    lives.

    Cons

    Government has over reached their regulation and are trying to close this education sector.Although some schools needed stronger regulation many are open to the most high risk students public education doesn't help.
    Public schools could not meet the same requirements as private for profit schools do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay the course, push to have public schools meet same requirements as you.
    Be a insulation between government and your people. Make it pleasant to work in this field. When you put the threats and pressure on your staff you will lose some very good caring people.

    I have been working at Education Affiliates full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The ability to give students hope and direction was awesome. Teaching thru real life experiences kept students engaged in the curriculum.

    Cons

    They hire people who lack experience and professionalism. The managers are poorly trained and provide false documentation of prior experience and education. People work 40 hours with no health benefits as instructors and directors. The students are lied to during enrollment. Lawsuits are numerous.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Tis school needs to be shutdown or get real employees and management.

    Worst Company to work for

    • Comp & Benefits
    Former Employee - Admissions
    Former Employee - Admissions

    I worked at Education Affiliates

    Pros

    The students who are determined to succeed. Helping people go to school who otherwise would not have a chance. The starting pay for admissions staff.

    Cons

    Being lied to about accreditation, funding, success rates of students. Upper level managers allowed to harass employees and students. Its a numbers game. It doesn't matter what the student issues are, all they want is the application fee. If a student can't pay, upper management makes you feel like you didn't do your job right. Getting paid to lie to hardworking people looking for a chance at a better life. Career services for students is a joke. When you are hired sign your name in blood cause its blood money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To upper level managers, regionals, national's,VP, CEO, Presidents get off your butts and walk each school. Get to know the students you are taking money from to go on vacation. Stop sitting in your offices, in "meetings"do work. Show your appreciation for all your employees. If you get a student or employee complaint take it seriously.

    Pros

    Great company perks such as holiday parties, paid time off and floating holidays considering many of the call center employees must work the holidays. In the event you relocate and there is a place for you at another one of the company's location, you are all set!

    Cons

    Any office has "office politics" and your occasional drama. However, at EA problems are dealt with and eliminated ASAP

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management isn't perfect but they are fair. I have no suggestions here!

    Pros

    The students are amazing. They are treated poorly by the administration and especially admissions, but teaching them is a pure joy.

    Cons

    Being promised things and it being a lie. Underhanded accreditation problems. Business manager at my location bragged about having lunch with a codes enforcement person, feeding her bull and getting a pass.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Tell the truth. Do the right thing not the expedient, get the students and employees off your back thing.
