Decent Place to Work

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Baltimore, MD

ProsSalary and benefits are competitive. Some of the best people in Baltimore work at Laureate.

ConsPolitics have become overwhelming. Budgets have been cut and when people leave, the company appears to hope nobody notices. Many managers are not genuine. They treat their employees poorly, but report to other senior management that their staff is happy and productive.

Advice to Senior ManagementAlmost all social activities have been curtailed in recent years. Employees aren't relating to each other and that affects the enthusiasm for the job. Although the company says they are collaborative, in reality, senior management is very autocratic and demands that orders be followed.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
