Not a bad place to work as a part-time college student or recent grad.

Admissions Advisor II (Former Employee)
Orlando, FL

ProsThe pay is pretty lucrative if you're working through your degree while you're employed. They try to show employees their graditude through formal lunch functions that are catered by elite groups.

ConsNo potential for upward movement. Pay is stagnent because of the new laws on for profit schools. The industry is dying and probably won't be around long.

Advice to Senior ManagementTake a look at what it going on and be realistic. Lower your prices to a reasonable cost per credit hour and you will recoup your losses by more student enrollments.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
