Pros

Chance to educate new healthcare professionals - the school has tons of healthcare-related programs and many are excellent in terms of quality.

Cons

Salaries are consistently much lower than those in the actual professions themselves - the educators make way less than many grads who obtain entry level jobs in their chosen profession. Also - there was an across the board 8% pay cut at the beginning of 2013 and there was no plan to ever give that money back to the employees - even if the business picked up. Then, three (or more) high-level management people were hired - their salaries financed by the rest of the employees' pay cuts. Also, they hire many, many healthcare professional because want their expertise, but then they either totally ignore or discount the recommendations these professionals make and think they (the organization) know better than the professionals they've hired. Management knows education - I get that, but the professionals they hire to teach and lead their programs know healthcare.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

As noted above: You know education; the instructors and others you hire to lead your programs are experts in their fields. STOP ignoring the expertise and talents they have and find a way to blend your education knowledge with the professional expertise of your instructors, program directors, and others you hire!

    Former Employee - Medical Assisting Instructor in Tempe, AZ

    I worked at Brookline College as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    ample parking, plenty of pens,

    Cons

    There is no help for the instructors, the program director is apathetic at her best, degrading, harsh, and unappreciative at her normal. Humiliation for the students and the instructors is what you can expect from the program director.

    Getting paid on a regular basis was a chore in the program I worked with, adjunct contracts where never given on time and not sent to cooperate on time, (things you have no control over)

    High instructor turnover which is hard on both instructors and students

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at the programs that can't keep instructors and figure it out. Look where the drops, and switches are going. Really look at the program,
