Terrible Leadership, Poor Ethics, No Future

Director (Former Employee)

I worked at Career Education full-time for more than 8 years

ProsThe organization is unwilling to fire employees who make unethical decisions and purposefully violate their own policies and procedures, if you are one of these people you are safe.

ConsLeaders have terrible ethics. The business model has been designed to load students with debt, then place them in low wage jobs where they cannot repay loans. Unacceptable decisions made at all levels of the organization that break accreditation criteria, break laws, and purposefully make things appear better than they are.

Advice to Senior ManagementStart behaving ethically.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
