Good co-workers and employees treated relatively well, however the company's direction is iffy.

I worked at Career Education full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Good pay; good co-workers; company does employee events such as holiday parties, and gives permission for departments to hold their own celebrations; there can be some flexibility with work hours to give a slightly better work/life balance.

Cons

Policies vary across the company and are hard to keep track of; training is not comprehensive across the board; bureaucracy can get in the way of solutions being implemented; no real potential for advancement in my particular department.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make sure you hire the right person for the right job, in regards to employees, managers, and higher-ups. Enforce standardized policies across all schools and levels of business.

    I worked at Career Education full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The main benefit of working here is that you can get a foot in the door and some experience before moving on

    Cons

    The corporation will not show loyalty to you; once I realized this by seeing how it treated others, I made sure to get out asap. The entire for-profit education industry is constantly under federal scrutiny, and in my opinion takes advantage of those who don't know any better; the business model is completely unstable; very very high turnover

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be sure to communicate better to your employees; do not point fingers or play the blame game
