I worked at Laureate Education full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Opportunity to work at a growing company in a small city with other professionals, some of who are great people.

Cons

Large focus on big promises to upper management without much thought for how to deliver the goods, and then a nasty blame game.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Manage the business with a passion for the quality of our product and people, and don't make decisions just to CYA.

    I worked at Laureate Education full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Competitive salaries, location, free coffee

    Cons

    Little vacation and personal leave, no opportunities for professional development, unqualified coworkers allowed to undermine and even bypass the work of qualified staff, boring uninspiring office atmosphere, and you better be in the "in crowd" to have any chance of succeeding here

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Empower staff to own their positions, and give them the professional courtesy and trust earned by years of work experience
