I worked at Career Education

Pros

Seemed to be trying to do better

Cons

:Low funding for program needs, no consistency of leadership, current equipment that is shared by programs inaccessible, current soft goods runout (paper, etc.), lack of parking, outdated equipment, lower wages than other companies investigated, building was not heated properly: had to wear a coat all day, lack of planning for department goals, lack of knowledge by upper management regarding accreditation rules and regulations, lack of listening regarding rules and regulations resulted in loss of accreditaion for program, night hours mandatory with no public transportation cou;ed with lack of parking made those hours nearly impossible. low staff to student ratio, low staff to exteniship sites made visitng them as needed impossible.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Support the programs to make them competitive (equipment needs) , get some heat in the building, stop changing leadership, investigate laws and rules of accrediting bodies before implementing changes that need to be changed almost daily.

    Pros

    The best reasons to work for Career Education are to make a difference in the life of this country's youth by providing a quality education that leads to better job opportunities. The other reason is to bring change in our education system by assisting for-profit educational institutions to lead the fight at Washington, DC.

    Cons

    They are a lot of office politics. People are promoted not because of how well they perform but who they know. The senior management team serves themselves with huge stock options and salaries.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote and recognize employees whose work performances are outstanding.

    Pros

    Career Education is good to work for because if you can last there for a year, you realize that you can work anywhere and put up with anything. When you get your next job, it is going to seem like a piece of cake. Once you are disrespected and truely don't feel cared about, it is going to be a pleasant suprise when you find a company that does treat you well. It makes you appreciate good managers even more. You do feel like you are helping some students but others you feel like you are talking them into something that is not right for them.

    Cons

    There are many reasons not to work at Career Education Corp. Broken promisesare one reason. Everyone there is expendable and they let you know that whenever they can is another. They really make you feel like you should be so lucky as to work for a place like this, when in reality they treat you like dirt and if you have any kind of a home life you won't be working there long because you need to be stressed out any minute you are awake, otherwise you are not trying hard enough. You are basically a telemarketer who does an occasional sales meeting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees are people not just what is keeping you from getting fired.
