You can do better than this company.

Associate Director of Admissions (Former Employee) Saint Peters, MO

ProsCareer Education is good to work for because if you can last there for a year, you realize that you can work anywhere and put up with anything. When you get your next job, it is going to seem like a piece of cake. Once you are disrespected and truely don't feel cared about, it is going to be a pleasant suprise when you find a company that does treat you well. It makes you appreciate good managers even more. You do feel like you are helping some students but others you feel like you are talking them into something that is not right for them.

ConsThere are many reasons not to work at Career Education Corp. Broken promisesare one reason. Everyone there is expendable and they let you know that whenever they can is another. They really make you feel like you should be so lucky as to work for a place like this, when in reality they treat you like dirt and if you have any kind of a home life you won't be working there long because you need to be stressed out any minute you are awake, otherwise you are not trying hard enough. You are basically a telemarketer who does an occasional sales meeting.
