I worked at Career Education full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

I learned more growing with CEC than I ever did in college. Stick with the regional colleges though for more stability. Yes, the admissions role can be hard but for inside sales they are more flexible than most. There is a work life balance respect which I've found hard to find in other companies.

Cons

The industry is in trouble.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Quality control on the FA side of the house.

    I have been working at Career Education full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Compensation is fair after the Department of Education began more closely regulating for-profit education. Benefits and time off are decent as well.

    Cons

    Vety little training, even less opportunity for advancement. Very high turnover. This is an inside sales position, don't be fooled by the job title. You have metrics you are judged on. If you aren't successful within the first couple weeks of employment, you will be let go. You will work odd hours and weekends as well.

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

    Pros

    The 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.

    Cons

    Leaders 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 ManagementAdvice

    Start behaving ethically.
