waste of time

Prosdecent place to work for about 6 months while you interview for a better job.

ConsThey prey on people to take out loans to pay for school. ridiculous quotas for "sales" people that don't get paid commission or bonuses. They have a secret management plan to not keep employees for longer than about 6 months to a year. They turnover the entire staff at least every year. I also offered some constructive criticism about their training program and the VP got her feathers ruffled.

Advice to Senior Managementretire.

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

Company is full of empty promises and deception to employees and students.

ProsIf you like to work in sales but not get paid for your performance this is the place for you.

ConsCompany is sorely mismanaged. promises are made to employees that are never fulfilled. Employees aren't expected to make it past 6 months and are given unobtainiable goals. The management team has secret agendas and manages employees out the door through their "GPS" program. Students are charged overinflated prices for their education and encouraged to take out loans.

Advice to Senior Managementbe realistic with the employees. Online proprietary schools are a dime-a-dozen and you're on a sinking ship.

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