ProsGreat area in downtown Baltimore
Decent starting pay
work/life balance is good if you're a salaried employee, not so much if you're hourly
Great diversity of people
Leadership is easy to talk to

ConsCareer advancement is almost non-existent. Unless you're in the "in-crowd" or as they say, "create a position/opportunity for yourself", be prepared to be in your same position for 2,5, or 10 years.

Lots of emphasis on growing the business internationally. But Laureate is dropping the ball on focusing right here in the U.S. and creating opportunities here. 5 schools under Laureate in the U.S., but 60+ internationally. I like the growth but I shouldn't have to consider moving to Gdansk, Poland for career advancement.

Advice to Senior ManagementHappy employees means a growing business. Career growth is needed. You'd be surprised how much talent and expertise is on the bottom/entry-level that could truly impact the business. Some of your "leaders" are just punching the clock and are out of touch.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
