    Pros

    Great people to work with (except management), the instructors were first class.

    Cons

    The AE's who have been with the company for 1 year plus had all the good
    accounts. New salespeople got what was left. Very high turnover in sales
    department, saw people come and go every other week. They keep the
    pressure on you. If you are an instructor you might have better luck.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make it more fair for the newer AE's coming into the company.

    Current Employee - Education Consultant in Orlando, FL

    I have been working at New Horizons Computer Learning Centers full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    We have the best education programs and dedicated full-time job placement assistance for those students who need it! We poll our business customers a lot to find out what classes and technology that want us to teach and whether they want instructor led training in the classroom or online. Those results give us a balance of both and it provides the right flexibility

    Cons

    None really except that we can only call within our geographic territory.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work. They work really hard to ensure students and employees are happy as well as successful!

    Pros

    Loved the work, hated the ridiculous politics and unprofessionalism.

    Cons

    Needing duct tape and bubble gum to keep the equipment working is not conducive to a good teaching experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being so cheap.

    Former Employee - Microsoft Applications Trainer in Irving, TX

    I worked at New Horizons Computer Learning Centers full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Having a teaching or facilitator background helps. The employees that were there were very friendly and helpful. This would be a good entry level job.

    Cons

    There is no work life balance so it would be a challenge for someone who may have small children. The training was not the best but I did have a good coach. You have to come in at least having a general idea of some of these applications.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please consider revamping how you train your new employees for being a trainer. Sitting a class(online) and hearing how the instructor teaches is not beneficial. Being able to actually watch the instructor navigate from screen to screen would help a lot. Also, be able to allow a new instructor to sit with someone that has years and years of experience not someone who has been there for months and is still in the learning phase.
