    Pros

    Faculty have flexibility to set up their classes as they wish. They're not tied to teaching a standard program prescribed for every single campus as is the case at some other for-profit institutions.

    Cons

    Very low quality of students recruited. Faculty are expected to teach a greater load at this company than at any other institutions in the area.

    Pros

    Full time benefits, educated co-workers, flexible schedule for faculty

    Cons

    Recruitment practices that accept un prepared students. Constant changes in policies and procedures that become confusing. Low office morale steeped by lay-offs and lack of transparency. Lack of leadership. Industry instability with gainful employment. Centralization practices that thwart decision making at the local level. Emphasis on profit not education.

    Advice to Management

    Hire competent leaders not "yes" men and women. Place accountability on leaders in the organization. Place accountability on ethical practices within the company. Be more interested in education than profit. Actions speak louder than words.
