Fearful Work Environment

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

ConsRecruitment 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 Senior ManagementHire 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
