Pros

Flexible work hours, good pay and benefits. Top level mgmt doing a good job. New office is top rate.
Company has no debt.

Cons

Often hectic IT work pace, slightly short staffed (what company isn't today). Concerned company doesn't pay severence if they prefer to let somebody go (put them on probation = better leave on your own, dummy). Would like to see more US citizens working in the dept (may contractors from overseas, not good when we award IT degrees).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Believe CEO Gary and his group have really worked to 'cleanup' any unethical behavior concerning what's told to prospective students. Gary certainly was the right person to head up CEC.

    Former Employee - Project Manager in Hoffman Estates, IL

    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.
