Lower level management means well, but the "C" level executives are a mess.

Admissions Representative (Former Employee)
Centennial, CO

I worked at Westwood College for more than a year

ProsThe team managers (called Directors Of Admissions), were great and wanted to see everyone succeed. The leaders just above them were great as well.

ConsThe executive team for Alta really are the ones who are responsible for the negativity involved in the company. When pressed about why Westwood was being sued (in a meeting with about 2000 employees there), the COO said, and I quote "Above my pay grade". Have never actually heard a bunch of employees literally "boo" one of their bosses.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe straight forward and take responsibility.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
