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

Pros

Pay was good
Hour long lunch

Cons

Micromanagement
Diploma mill for their students
No place for advancement
They put in place these attendance points that if you were late by 1 minute you would get points deducted. It was so stupid.
New CEO laid everyoneoff without notice

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't micromanage people. Everything isn't about numbers.

    I worked at Career Education full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    My time spent working at CTU was good; their leadership team is much more aggressive and forward thinking than many of the other schools or the corporate CEC team. Flexible work schedule.

    Cons

    The industry went from great to bad very quickly. During my time there I had 3 different bosses within my first 9 months of employment. Many leaders were promoted too quickly without the proper development.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more autonomy to the schools and invest more in the proper development of your employees.

    Doesn't Recommend
