I have been working at Career Education full-time for less than a year

Pros

High salaries paid, new corporate facilities to bring employees from multiple buildings together

Cons

Whole company is dysfunctional, each brand operates independently, student recruiting practices are unethical, students graduate with piles of debt and look forward to low paying salary jobs

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reel em in. Do not let every brand create their own rules from scratch. Reuse the learned best practices

    Pros

    Continue improving the brands. Reward talented admissions employees to help with employee retention rates. Continue working driving an ethical culture. Things will continue to improve.
