Betrayed by a company I served with dedication

Instructional Designer (Former Employee)
Hoffman Estates, IL

I worked at Career Education

ProsThe best reasons to work for Career Education are to make a difference in the life of this country's youth by providing a quality education that leads to better job opportunities. The other reason is to bring change in our education system by assisting for-profit educational institutions to lead the fight at Washington, DC.

ConsThey are a lot of office politics. People are promoted not because of how well they perform but who they know. The senior management team serves themselves with huge stock options and salaries.

Advice to Senior ManagementPromote and recognize employees whose work performances are outstanding.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
