    Pros

    The students really are the reason why many instructors continued coming to work.

    Cons

    Pay is awful, management wasn't supportive, updated rules or regulations were not communicated for instructors to adapt them into the daily tasks. For instructors, the organization should be clear to employees when changes are made in the industry. This helps to keep the students on a up to date curriculum. In addition, the corporate expectations of attrition were not manageable.


  3. Senior Management and Management should have been honest.

    Pros

    Helping students discover options to develop their careers. Co-workers who cared about the students. Can be a fun place to work because of the happiness that students have. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Pressure to enroll students who may not have success of getting employment in the career they received training. When admission reps, financial aid advisors, and teachers believed that some prospective students may not be a good fit, we were still pressured to enroll them. Students who were financially challenged had to pay monthly payments. Senior Management and management not being honest about companies financial situation.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with you employees. Listen to your employees. Give the students a bit more consideration of their success rate.

    Pros

    Direct career coaching to a diverse student population Great opportunity to network with employers in the healthcare industry If you have a good manager you get lexibility, support and resources to do your job Some coworkers are equally committed to the students

    Cons

    Staff turnover which results in unrealistic department goals Too many Regional and Division Directors - waste of money Often managers lack long term vision and strategic planning

    Advice to Management

    Focus on your staff, treat them with respect, trust them and let them do their jobs Cut down on the regional and divisional teams - waste of money and resources Make policies that reward hard work and remove lazy employees

    Pros

    To education students who are looking for a chance at a career.

    They knowingly enroll some students that are not employable in their technical area.

    Pros

    There were some truly Godly people that I had the privilege of getting to know and work with day after day in what some would consider a mission field.

    Cons

    In my nearly 25 years in the Information Technology field and having multiple bosses over the years, I will say that Everest Institute is definitely the worst. Especially in the trade school industry (for-profit and non-profit alike).

    Advice to Management

    Management and corporate alike need to learn how to truly treat their employees that are actually doing all the work instead of treating them like scum.
