    Pros

    The best reason to work here is that they show you how to progress from admissions to anywhere else in the company. Based on my experience here I was able to land great management roles.

    Cons

    There is some stress but that goes along with any job that has high expectations. I really believe at this company you get out what you put in. You have to be willing to take coaching and advice and that can be a negative for some people.

    Pros

    Multiple locations around the company, great product - education, great employee benefits, opportunities to grow in different career areas with the company.

    Cons

    Lots of changes in senior leadership, leaders aren't visible to the employees around the country, decisions are sometimes made in a vacuum at the corporate offices and not vetted with the managers in the field who are closest to the business and our customers.

    Advice to Management

    Hold more open employee roundtables, walk the floor, get out of your offices in the tower, listen, communicate, create a positive environment so we can truly be a "best place to work!"

    our rules and regulation must be clear to all employees, students and their parents, and keep our teacher to know about teaching techniques and new course updates
