Advice to Prospective Employees and Students: Stay Away!!

I have been working at Lincoln Educational Services

Pros

Heated parking garage at the Hartford facility. Not much else.

Cons

Not a good place to work. As part of the security department, more and more work has been heaped upon us without salary increases. Mandatory overtime demands made on security staff without giving notice. Management is not concerned with our personal plans or schedules. Many students are practically illiterate. No SAT test scores are required, just a simple "entrance test" and proof you can pay the fees and you're admitted. Many enrollees (hard to call them "students) come from troubled backgrounds. Several think nothing of destroying property--kicking holes in walls and breaking apartment doors and throwing trash on the floors of their own residence hallways. Roofs leak and buckets appear everywhere during storms. Carpets are buckling and present a hazardous situation. There have been many spontaneous layoffs, though not in security, mostly based on salary. If there are two employees in a department, one will be let go based on his/her higher pay.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Would be nice if you cared about all employees and not merely a select few.

    Pros

    Satisfying to assist students achieve their goals. And getting a paycheck. That's all!

    Cons

    Upper management only cares about admissions (sales) and education is not important. Equipment outdated/old but admissions gets all sorts of lunches, dinners, vacation days, etc. just for doing their job! Students given a forum for their input, but only the tiniest/most inexpensive complaints are taken care of, just to say that "they are listening". Very decadent towards their upper management, even paying for annual trip to Atlantic City for 3-4 day "convention". That $ could be used towards bettering the actual schools!!! Instructional staff works very hard, but again, certain "expensive" programs get all of the good stuff, and management's ear, getting away with murder.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend some time and money listening and taking care of your students. Admissions is important, but don't turn your back on the other departments in the schools. Delegation of responsibilities should be more equal. Should not promote managers simply because of seniority. Also, in some areas, some sexual discrimination occuring. If you are a younger female, you get stuck doing all the paperwork while the male boss takes your male counterparts out for golfing for the rest of the afternoon. You don't even get a thank you or any sort of appreciation, but seem to be avoided while the "boys" go out for happy hour at 4pm after accreditation walks out the door. Working 11 hour days and 6 days a week does not pay off, so don't bother. They just add on more work and use you up! And, though your record is spotless, one personal error and you are terminated, and the company refuses to return your personal items from your office! Gotta love it!
