    Pros

    The company has a passion for helping students succeed and achieve their career goal. Small classes with good equipment so students can have hands on learning.

    Cons

    Its a for profit institution. Bottom line is mgmt is all about meeting the numbers which means convincing students to sign up immediately even though they say they are looking at multiple schools. Staff and Mgmt love to point fingers if a student decides not to start or withdraw. Even if the student voiced their concerns in the beginning, they still push to enroll them aggressively. There are no adequate training manuals. Mgmt thinks that random emails is sufficient for training with very little resources to use with the various scenarios because all students are not in the same position. They also have the staff go so far above and beyond, that students become lazy because they expect us to do everything for them without them being held accountable to hand in forms, complete online applications etc. Administration spends far too much time chasing students down and then they wonder why they complain. At some point when the administration/staff does not have the ability to hold students accountable, students take advantage and the finger pointing begins even though the staff member made several attempts to get the task accomplished.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Mgmt needs to show a united front and stop throwing their employees under the bus to cover their own butts. Even if the counselor or staff member made a mistake, it shouldn't be stated in the manner that puts a staff member down. Students are not dumb. They often times have an established relationship with their counselors and know how hard they work for them. Mgmt also needs to provide positive feedback. They are so quick point out something small but rarely hand out kudos. A simple good job goes a long way.
