Micromanagement
Diploma mill for their students

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

    Former Employee - Recruiter

    I worked at Career Education full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good opportunity for entry level college faculty. Anyone who would like to get their first opportunity as college faculty member could get some experience here.

    Cons

    Constant course schedule changes make it difficult to hold onto faculty for more than a semester. The pay is low for the faculty about half of what they could be paid at a traditional college.

    Recommends
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
