Great place to work if you're in the right department.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Schaumburg, IL

ProsGreat 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.

ConsNegative 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 Senior ManagementContinue 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

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


    Pros: pay is decent, a new employee can make as much as $40k a year with full benefits. Even if you're… 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… Advice to Senior Management: Cut your losses and pull out of the education business. You have no idea… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
