    It was educative, fun and students took their studies serious.

    MIBC Instructor (Current Employee) West Los Angeles, CA

    ProsThe staff is organized and friendly, the course curriculum is up to standard. The Career Services try their best to make sure that students with perfect attendance have jobs upon completion of their course. In short Everest is student and community friendly.

    ConsDealing with at risk students. Those who may want to drop out as soon as they come in.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEverest should continue reaching out to those communities where young people think they do not have hope. This will go a long way of fulfilling the slogan: "We in Everest do care and do change lives. These communities are Culver City, Crenshaw, Manchester and south central

    Campus staff was awesome, corporate staff was not that great

    High School Admissions Representative (Former Employee)

    ProsGood pay, vacation, benefits. The staff at the campus where I worked really cared about the students.

    ConsCorporate is disconnected from their campuses, stuck in their ways and doesn't listen to suggestions from their campus employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCorporate needs to actively listen to ways to innovate their brand from the staff that knows what it would take to do so.
