I have been working at Education Corporation of America full-time (more than an year)

Pros

The CEO appears to be a straightforward person. He runs the organization like a publicly traded company with quarterly town halls. And holds teleconferences when major changes occur to ease employees' minds. He also really seems to care about the classroom experience for students.

Cons

The corporate office frequently makes decsions without considering the impact at the campus level and then expect the campuses to outperform without the necessary resources to be successful.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Ask questions of other people besides those immediately under you. It's a bad time for career education in general. We will all undertand when changes need to occur. Just give us time to properly implement it.

    Cons

    High turnover
