Pros

Great people to work with, decent compensation, very good professional development. If you are looking to work in the career education field, this is a terrific one to work for. It is part of a growing group of colleges with a strong future ahead.

Cons

Don't come work here if you want a place to sit around. If you don't perform to high standards, you will be asked to leave. High turnover in the leadership has its problems, as there are some growth issues and keeping up with that.

Advice to Management

Keep up communication in a way that will allow work to get done with as little redundancy as possible. Requiring data and reports is necessary; repetitive reports in different formats is non-productive. Keep up the great decisions regarding growth...this group has great potential, and will continue to be very successful.

    Pros

    The students are great. Some instructors care enough to hold students to a higher degree of learning/writing/education.

    Cons

    This is a for-profit school, and therefore the admissions staff engage in some sketchy practices to lure students in. They deceive prospective students into thinking that they're going to get hired right away with the school's assistance, and that their credits transfer to a number of other schools for bachelor-level degrees. FALSE on both counts. Instructors are saddled with having to perform retention practices, which includes calling all students who do not show up to class on any particular day. Not because the school really cares about them, but because dropping out equals less money to grease management pockets. Staff turnover is high, which affects students. Instructors pass students through who cannot critically think or spell. They dumb down exams and hold the students to such a low bar that middle school students could get degrees here. In the end, students don't get hired. Pay is very low for teachers, compared to community colleges. Some Program directors have not been in the field in over 15 years, and have no clue about current practices to keep students abreast of career expectations and job tasks.

    Advice to Management

    There's no use in offering advice here. It falls upon deaf ears because everything is about the bottom line.

    Pros

    They care about their employees. They try to keep everyone informed about decisions that are made. They hold monthly "Town Hall Meetings" to do this. The pay is a lot more than most. They care about their students.

    Cons

    Sometimes duties exceed the pay grade. Not always a lot of recognition when a good job is done. Sometimes change takes too long to happen.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management would be to listen to your employees. Hear what they have to say and take it to heart. At the same time, I would say to employees that they should understand where management is coming from and that they cannot accommodate everything that is suggested.
