    Leadership is number focused; all about profit margins, however, the staff work hard to prepare and develop students.

    Pros

    It allows you a chance to give back to those less unfortunate while really rolling up your sleeves to make a position difference and help people change their lives through career education.

    Cons

    Benefits have been reduced substantially; no more tuition reimbursement, restructured paid time off process which resulted in a loss of vacation days, reduction in 401K contributions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When focusing on the preparation and development of the student, their ROI will result in referrals and higher popularity and population. This will in turn increase the profit margins. Put quality in to the product and quantity will be returned.
