    I worked at Career Education

    Pros

    The best reason to work for Career Education is if you are truly wanting to be an educator and give back to the community...without regards to salary or the way you are treated.

    Cons

    Working for an organization giving 110% day in day out and taking the initiative to complete task that are not being completed by other Directors and not being recognize by the Senior Management Team of the Group. Unless you work in Admissions there is no recognition for a job well done in the organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce multiple senior level staffing at the Corporate Office and provide the schools the necessary support to help the students and truly become an Education company looking out for the interest of the students and see them realize their dreams.

    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current equipment that is shared by programs inaccessible, current soft goods runout (paper, etc.), lack of parking, outdated equipment, lower wages than other companies investigated, building was not heated properly: had to wear a coat all day, lack of planning for department goals,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.
