    I have been working at Everest Institute part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Non stressful minimal demands. Great work schedule. Instructors seem to care for students and have a passion for teaching.

    Cons

    Not organized, lack of communication. Management has unrealistic expectations of students. Students should be tested and then placed according to their abilities. Everest will accept any student no matter what their skill set is and put them all in one category which is not fair to the student and the Instructor. Lack of professionalism among the entire campus. Employees need to be groomed in professional conduct.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire qualified people in management positions. The culture needs to change whereas they care more for the student and their success opposed to the money.

    Pros

    By working at Everest Institute, I am at least able to pay my bills..barely. They have reduced salaried employees wages by 10% for the next 6 pay periods.

    Cons

    Everything about this company has turned out to be a con. From the top down, we have all been conned and used.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Practice what you preach.

    Pros

    Helping students, guiding & mentoring them

    Cons

    300+ dials a day, recording every minute of your time at work, company has no moral values, and is VERY unethical. They do not care about HR- they will work you to their favor. Very inconsiderate of you and your time, and all they care about are numbers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want people to put in their all, you should appreciate them more instead of constantly mico-manage and be so negative about everything. Quit asking people to take care of this like their own business when you DO NOT take care of your employees at all.

    Pros

    The only reason I can think of to work for this school is the students.

    Cons

    Management is terrible. Completely contradicts themselves on a daily basis. They implement a new strategy and if it doesn't have an immediate change they freak out and change it again. They claim to be here to change students lives but it's all about numbers. The stress levels are ridiculous. If you aren't hitting your "expected" goals they will find a way to get you out. They impose lofty goals on all their employees and don't really give you the tools to be successful. If you don't "close" a student or they don't show for their admissions appointment it is always your fault and not the students. They number shame their employees to "motivate" them. No positive feedback. You might get a thanks or a good job but no matter what you do they will find some negative aspect to harp on. They change schedules constantly and at the last minute. There is no communication between departments and they don't let you know when an instructor or department chair leaves. Pay is not great for the amount of work that you do. You will not get any overtime and if we ever get out of this financial mess you could possibly get a merit raise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take responsibility for your team. If they aren't being successful it is your fault not theirs. You need to lead by example and stop the high pressure sales tactics. It's what got our company in trouble in the first place.

    Pros

    Helping people achieve their educational goals.

    Cons

    Upper Management not very supportive, long hours, last minute schedule changes. Very High turnover both in academics and admissions. Micro management, no chance for advancement and no pay increases, no over time. Basically they take their workers for granted because they know how much we care for our students and how hard we will work to make sure they are successful. So they continue to ask for long hours but don't want to pay

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's not worth it because they will not pay attention.

    Pros

    They pay ok. Benefits are good. I had a great manager which made it ok.

    Cons

    Leads are awful. You will get hung up on all day. Turnover is really high. Lots of Saturday work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop firing people every few weeks. Most of the time it was the company doing a poor job and having a bad reputation rather than the employees being bad. Quitting there was one of the best days of my professional career.
