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

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

    Pros

    As far as technology to deliver an educational solution to the student, there are few if any that can compete with the platform.

    Cons

    CEC is great at promises during the recruiting process. Sadly, it doesn't turn into reality, ever. The company (and it is a company) has lost focus on the students and the only thing that matters is the bottom line. The leadership in the company is lacking and the strategic vision of the corporation is unknown. Layoffs are very common place and the work of the displaced employees is never back filled. The company is also highly political and if your opinion is to the contrary, you've limited your career potential.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest with employees, be honest with prospective students and be honest with yourself.
