    I worked at International Academy of Design & Technology full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I worked with some great teachers here and was able to create some excellent programs. The students were a nice diverse mix and some were really hungry for an education.

    Cons

    The leadership team was only focused on increasing enrollment/profit, although most of the people delivering the educational product were trying to serve the students well. It became difficult to meet the goals required by the job and do good work, stay ethical, improve the quality of instruction, etc. Multiple rounds of layoffs and disregard for employees really devastated morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Balance profit with product quality. Reward talented faculty and make sure students get what they're paying for.
