    Pros

    I truly worked with some extremely talented instructors and directors at the Art Institute. They care about the success of the students.

    Cons

    The unfortunate piece is the corporate mandates that bog people down. Faculty want to teach and do a good job and not be caught up in the corporate paperwork, trainings, and requirements that do not have an impact at all on good teaching or student success. There are simply too many places where a box needs to be checked and that is it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Training should NOT have been cut. Amazing people have been let go and the company does the bare minimum to take care of people. The C-levels are business people and they do not have education backgrounds or truly understand what is happening at the campus level with the people. It is all about profits, thus the name for-profit!

    Pros

    I like working with college students

    Cons

    The company is for-profit and is bleeding money, meaning that they are laying off all of their good people and trying to replace them with cheaper alternatives in order to avoid going under. Bad decisions all around.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Jump ship while you still can!
