    Former Employee - IT Trainer in Santa Ana, CA

    I worked at Corinthian Colleges full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Nice location, paid parking, office is close to the freeway exit/entrance, nice building, it's great to take walks around the pond/lake owned by the neighboring office building.

    Cons

    A lot of questionable ethics in this organization. The execs take 7 figure bonuses while laying people off. The contractors aren't paid on time, or in any regular/predictable fashion. Supervisors are either micromanagers, or total idiots who don't care about anything (except covering their own tail). There's not a lot of people in this organization who have real business experience outside of this organization (or similar dysfunctional for-profit education corporations).

    You have to watch your backside at all times. The goal isn't to hire the best and the brightest - it's to hire people who will do what they are told without asking questions or caring about the consequences.

    The business relies heavily on Title IV funding from the federal government, but the executives openly say things like, "The government should mind its own business!" when it comes to expecting students to get a good enough education to pay back student loans.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take some classes in business ethics, and business management.

    Current Employee - Human Resources in Santa Ana, CA

    I have been working at Corinthian Colleges full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Experienced & committed executive leadership team
    Company takes integrity issues & core values seriously
    Solid benefits package
    National company allows for a lot of internal transfers
    Company culture revolves around putting students first

    Cons

    Proprietary education is a tough industry. For-profit schools are constantly under intense scrutiny and are always susceptible to regulations from Washington that are eternally changing. Also, because CCi is a publically-traded company, a lot of key initiatives must first receive approval from Board of Directors.
