I worked at Career Education

Pros

Decent pay, decent opportunities. Generally good people to work with. Senior management seems to have company headed in right direction.

Cons

The for-profit education industry is in trouble. This was not a place I was proud to work for. Too much negative publicity as a diploma mill. Despite managements efforts, not sure you can really change this culture when you have stockholders to keep happy. There will always be opposing forces to enroll as many students as possible, qualified or not, yet try to maintain a quality education for all students.

    Pros

    The current co-workers make it much more enojoyable to get through the work day. The pay is good for the current market. If you choose the PPO the benifits are fabulous.

    Cons

    Very tedious job. There are a lot of rules and regulations that need to be met by the department of education. We now have a system in place to meet those rules and regs it worked very well at first but now it seems to be biting us in the rear right now. If we make a small mistake (that is not a fedral issue) we get a finding. Now every single minute of your work day is making sure that you do not get a finding. It has taken the fun out of the job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management has greatly improved. There is still some issues with what the schools want and what we need to have, but I don't think that we will ever see eye to ey
