    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

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Online Math Instructor

    Online Instructor (Current Employee)

    ProsWork from home, flexible work hours

    ConsMost instructors are hired as adjuncts which does create a stable and consistent work environment. Only good for extra income. Low pay.

    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.

    It just felt wrong

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe overall mission of the school is admirable and can be seen at the corporate level. They provide adequate training and compensation was very adequate.

    ConsThe company loses it's identity at the local level. Locally, it becomes all about the bottom line and in doing so the local campus I worked for at the time set itself up for failure in the end. At the local level the values were lost to the dollar.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Best I Ever Had

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Henderson, NV

    ProsExcellent benefits, excellent people. The education staff is stable and very caring. Chairpeople work very hard every single day to ensure students have 100% opportunity to succeed. This campus has earned Parthenon status, a recognition of excellence within the company. Both upstairs and downstairs people work tirelessly to stay on that level.

    ConsIn my five-plus years, we went through a lot of deans. This is not a negative reflection on the school necessarily, but I can think of at least five. The newest one starts at the end of May 2014.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work. You give your best every day and it shows.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Decent place to work

    Career Services Representative (Current Employee)
    Fort Worth, TX

    ProsTime off for vacation and sick time is acceptable, Good medical and dental benefits. My department is empowered as to how we coach the current students and graduates. Provides a sense of fulfillment if you like helping others to build self-worth

    ConsThe pay is not comparable to others in the education industry. Management appears to look at numbers only instead of rewarding good behavior

    Advice to Senior ManagementDevelop a plan to compensate employees for their efforts. Be more approachable. Formulate a plan to motivate employees and students

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
