    Pros

    Really excellent training department when I was there. They really make sure their employees know the job. Also, this is one of the funnest places I ever worked, in terms of working with great co-workers.

    Cons

    It's a nationally accredited university which means the education does little to nothing for the students we were enrolling. It's hard to stomach at the end of the day. There are also aggressive sales tactics and clever ways we are taught to not tell students about the detriment of going to a nationally accredited college.

    Pros

    Other than being employed with a salary there were no pros to working here.

    Cons

    Too many to list, but note they are often embroiled in legal battles regarding misrepresentation of their services. This is a for-profit organization that's all about the money. Employees are a dime a dozen and they could care less about the students.
