    If you don't fit in with their established dynamic and try to move up the promotion chain, you will be very disatisfied.

    ProsCentrally located. Easy access from freeway. Nice clean work environment.

    ConsVery tight, closed pre-established territorial work groups. If you like working alone with very little or no support, this employer is for you. It's ALL about the students. Staff is only there for show and to support the hundreds of luncheons, dinners, after school parties (Marketing) and weekend gala's the campus hosts for sales and marketing purposes.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRequire all Administrative Staff to cross train. Re-write all their job duties to reflect real-life. Get to really know your staff and faculty. Treat everyone with respect and professionalism. Don't allow little groups to form and become all-powerful running out the really good and respected workers.

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

    High standard of education for students

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Anaheim, CA

    ProsBeing in an academic environment and watching young minds blossom and grow, learning from co-workers, meeting new people and the opportunity for travel.

    ConsEmployees not a priority, high employee turnover, career advancement is practically non-existent, company typically hires outside instead of promoting within.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop wasting money on trainings and seminars that really aren't beneficial to the overall workplace. Promote from within so the employees feel they are actually going somewhere with their careers instead of remaining stagnate in the same position.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
