Former Employee - Student Finance Processor in Schaumburg, IL

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

    Former Employee - Lead Instructor  in  Chicago, IL
    Former Employee - Lead Instructor in Chicago, IL

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