    I worked at Education Affiliates full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I loved working with students and watching them develop into professionals. It was very rewarding aiding students in finding their dream jobs.

    Cons

    I hated that the company did anything to push students into jobs that they were not interesting in to meet goals.

    Advice to Management

    I would advice management to not forget the purpose of the organization and school. I understand that it's a business but we owe the students so much more than meeting quotas

    I have been working at Education Affiliates full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fortis college in Westerville OH... The building is air conditioned... There are ladies rooms on all floors... There are flowers in the middle of the building...

    Cons

    The director of the college wants you to pass students even if they are not passing students. I have to teach both day and night, that gets old fast!!!! There are students who have legitimate complaints to the president, but nothing happens. I would not suggest this private college to anyone who wants to get a college degree. This private school is only interested in making money but not the students... This private school is currently on probation for Nursing with the state, we'll see what happens there.....

    Advice to Management

    - Start focusing on the students education, not just the population. - Treat the instructors with the respect they deserve. - The president needs to quit focusing on himself.


  3. Fortis is corrupt.

    Pros

    Excellent Health benefits for full time employees

    Cons

    Unfair treatment of employees, especially the Instructors and false hope given to prospective students regarding their career outlook. Most of the diplomas they offer are for jobs that can be obtained without any specialized training

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to come up with a base salary plan for all departments and follow the rules of the Equal Pay Act.

    I have been working at Education Affiliates full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I love working with the students and improving their lives with a skilled trade they can provide for their families with. Director of my program has our confidence and our support, and he trusts us when it comes to doing our job properly in the classroom.

    Cons

    Money can be tight on occasion. I have never been turned for something I absolutely needed to do my job though.

    Advice to Management

    Support your instructors. I have trust in my director but above him there is little faith and trust that they have their employees and students first. I know its a for-profit school, and I understand what that means. There are times it feels like it is an impossible task doing what is asked.

    I have been working at Education Affiliates full-time

    Pros

    Excellent benefit package, strong in compliance with industry and accreditation standards

    Cons

    Not at all progressive in their willingness to improve processes and policies to the point that they are harming their chances for survival, no loyalty to those who have given their all to help them succeed, not student focused, ineffective in their marketing efforts

    Advice to Management

    Get out of the office and LISTEN to the people on the front line who know what needs to be done to correct the shortcomings of the organization and allow those they have trusted with the management of campuses to actually do their jobs instead of demanding exorbitant amounts of data and statistics that prevent them from being effective
