    I have been working at Harrison College full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very family oriented. With the prior President Ken Konesco, the mission of the company was family first. My direct managers have always been very accommodating and encouraging. I've had several roles due to promotions. The campus was very nice since it allowed a more home feeling.

    Cons

    Major lay offs within the company after I left due to relocating out of state. Just recently another layoff has been taken place and the majority of my good friends have been laid due to slow economic growth. Administration/Headquarters was more just a corporate job feel to it and didn't feel as valued as working with a campus.

    Advice to Management

    Stop creating titles for unnecessary positions and then lay the position off in a couple of year. There are so many "Director of" positions that can all be condensed to one Regional position.

    Pros

    Professors help and support each other. Administration works directly with professors on student issues. Director and dean are extremely supportive of professors. Fantastic work environment. I always looked forward to working each day.

    Cons

    Professors deal with tons of paperwork and trainings. Technology is a little slow. Salary is lower than might be expected at an equivalent job. Professors are there to serve the students.

    Advice to Management

    The Chefs Academy is a fantastic place to work. I would recommend it to anyone in the culinary field that would like to teach. The only con that management could impact would be the catering to students. However, the school is a private institution that receives money based on attendance, so I understand the reason behind this initiative.

    A wonderful environment, great team and rewarding work. The company is focused on development both individually and as a team. They aren't afraid of change.

    The experience in individual campuses very greatly based on that campus' president.
