Pros

Great co-workers, competitive salaries, great work/life balance. Overall, I really enjoy being part of the Career Education team. Every company has it's drawbacks, but I think this one has less than most.

Cons

Negative reputation. Aside from the reputation, it's a difficult place to work if you don't handle change well. Things change almost daily and it's not good for the complacent.

Advice to Management

Continue to invest in your employees and focus on students instead of profits. You're headed in the right direction, but you still have a ways to go.

    Pros

    pay is decent, a new employee can make as much as $40k a year with full benefits. Even if you're terrible at your job you can easily slip through the cracks and go unnoticed long enough to find a better job

    Cons

    You are not an "admissions adviser", you are sales person. Your role is to enroll every person they transfer to you no matter what kind of education they are looking for. You're "trained" to talk veterans into blindly signing over their education benefits for a degree that is pretty much useless.

    Micromanagement CONSTANTLY.

     Multiple supervisors to answer to

    The company is falling apart under mismanagement. They are constantly changing everything. In the last year I've had over a half dozen supervisors. The company is constantly under the scrutiny of the department of education for it's policies and mismanagement

    Advice to Management

    Cut your losses and pull out of the education business. You have no idea what you are doing and are harming far too many people in the process
