    Wonderful Secret

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Baltimore, MD

    ProsGreat 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!

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement isn't perfect but they are fair. I have no suggestions here!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Admissions Representative

    Admissions Representative (Former Employee)
    Pittsburgh, PA

    Micro Managers to the Fullest

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Baltimore, MD

    ProsSmaller work teams. They actually have conventions for Career Service reps to vent.

    ConsA bunch of micro managers with no plan. They should run a staffing firm instead of career college. Bad management and aren't technical savvy enough to compete. This whole organization is out of date and out of time.

    Advice to Senior ManagementUpdate company policies, get rid of family members in management, hire better leaders and update your computer systems.

    It's all about quantity over quality

    Instructor (Current Employee)
    Columbia, SC

    ProsFlexible time off, decent benefits for full time.

    ConsMost instructors are adjunct and have a minimally vested interest in teaching.
    Minimal possibility for advancement.
    Management is more concerned with maintaining attendance to keep the accreditation organization off their back and making sure students don't loose the federal funding that pays for them than producing a quality student.
    Faculty often receive the de-facto blame anything student based.
    Minimal admissions standards.
    Pay is low, although full time employees have a pretty good PTO and medical package.
    Passing standards are very low for students.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Unfocused, with out a clear identity with extremely talented employees but managed poorly.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Wayne, NJ

    ProsStrong employee personal who worked for a difficult campus leader. Despite the lack of resources and support, staff found a way to perform at the highest level.

    ConsThe Wayne campus was poorly ran with high turnover and lack of focus by senior management. Employees oftentimes negotiated how time is utilized with an extremely difficult senior manage who provided little support regarding marketing school and providing a top notch work environment. Worker morale was poor and long term staff did not advance with in the company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEducation Affiliate's Wayne campus must re-access the high turnover in company profile. A work environment that is encouraging, organized and just creates an synergy needed to ensure employees reach their optimum work performance.

    It was okay. I wouldn't recommend anyone I know to apply there.

    Admissions Representative (Former Employee)
    Mobile, AL

    ProsBenefits are great, but thats about it.

    ConsOnce this big investor brought this local trade school everything changed. A once family oriented company change to a corporate machine. It wasn't what I thought at all. Not very much training with admissions reps. You are pretty much throw to the wolves.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop treating employees like numbers.

    You feel stressed out everyday you fo into work.

    Admissions Counselor (Current Employee)
    Wayne, NJ

    ProsThe money they pay well that it

    Adjunct Instructor

    Adjunct Instructor (Current Employee)

    ProsEnjoying teaching and a good program director.

    ConsExtreme disconnect between management and what actually happens within the classroom. There seems to be more of a concern with keeping students in and paying their tuition then there is producing a more highly educated student.

    Also, zero room for a full time position and no chance of advancement. Adjuncts also work on 6 week contracts with no benefits and questionable pay.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry being less by the book, listen to your faculty and get a grip on the reality of who your clientele is and what happens in the classrooms.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
