I have been working at Laureate Education

Pros

-Internal Promotions (4 positions in 4.5 years)
-Nice location
-Okay compensation and benefits
-If you come in with experience, you have a better advantage at getting a better salary, if you ask for it

Cons

-Promotions come with little if no salary compensation (sometimes you have to take them without knowing what you might get)
-Many people leave and come back, because that is the only time they can get properly compensated.
-They are trying to lower the gap between salaries. Some positions have large gaps. For example one person might make 40,000 and another 80,000 with the same responsibilities.
-Workloads are not fairly balanced.
-Morale is low, no sense of teams.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Compensate your good employees, so they stop leaving.

    1. No SME's to help since everyone is leaving the department.

    12. Tremendous micromanagement and employees treated very badly

    In my last 15 years of carrer this was the craziest place i worked at. I wish i could rewind those days and undo my mistake to join this company. I repent working here and after joining a new company i realize what trauma i have been at Laureate. Working here was a nightmare and all the reviews are saying the trust since i have been through this.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I hope management will wake up one day when all employees have left. But the supreme VP's will still be messing around with employees. No one is going to join your company unless you take a serious action on your top management. Learn moral ethics of humanity and then employ people so that atlease they are treated properly.

    Pros

    The company is large enough to offer room for advancement.

    Cons

    Does not compensate internal employees fairly. Pay less qualified people from the outside more. Often tell people one salary and pay them something different. No internal offer letters so nothing is in writing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be open with employees about situation. Practice fair compensation.
