    Pros

    Flexible hours if you work part time. Holidays are always off, and if you live in the NorthEast, there are some snow days that give you a happy day off! Paid staff meetings, but they are not always very productive

    Cons

    Disorganized management creates unnecessary stress at work. They kept changing my assignment and expecting me to do whatever they needed without concern for the end result - how it would effect the students.

    Advice to Management

    Considering putting the needs of the students first will help making better decisions. Also, giving enough prep time to instructors will make them better (and happier) instructors

  2. Most horrific place to work.

    Pros

    Finally disconnecting yourself from this circus. Enjoying success elsewhere after you been told you are no good for so long by these folks.

    Cons

    Owners dont know how to run the school but believe they are better than anyone they hire so you can get fired after your first week if owners get a feeling.

    Advice to Management

    Sell schools or shut down. Taking money from people is not good business. Hurting people (employees) in the process will only bring you bad karma.

    Pros

    Small school which creates a family environment .

    Cons

    Senior management. Low pay in comparison to industry. Provide benefits but would be half your pay. No consistency. Minimal training. No ethics. I would never recommend anyone to attend this college as a student none the less work here.

    Advice to Management

    Take some management courses. Obtain an MBA degree so you can learn how manage and run a company. Treat your employees like they are people and matter. Give your students their moneys worth.

    Pros

    There was plenty to learn

    Cons

    The pay is very low for everyone (not just me), you aren't trusted to do the job yourself, you are frequently told what numbers to put into the books.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more, stop looking over everyone's shoulder so much
