Pros

You learn a lot because they dump a lot on you and you have no choice but to sink or swim.

Cons

Horrible leadership, no training, all about a numbers game and your number will never satisfy the company because there are so many students to place (in jobs related to their field--this is ultimately what everything comes down too). This is thanks to poor planning (enrolling too many students). Turn over is extreme, you will understand once you start--like something out of a movie. Never saw "Office Space" but heard lots of comparisons.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Iron fists and extreme micro management will never yield positive results. Get managers that know how to WORK with a team, not slave drive. Left on my own, cherish my sanity.

    I worked at Everest College full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Salary was good but considerably less than peers.

    Cons

    We often pretended like we cared about the Students, but it was only so that they didn't drop. Student withdrawls affect the bottom line.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the acting job.
