    Not a Good Place to Work if you are seeking growth, integrity, and a long term career.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsMission is solid, however, cost cutting has resulting in unfavorable cuts to turn a profit

    ConsManagement that started to come onboard after 2011 had a negative impact. Previous Sr Directors and Executives who could move the company in the right direction all left the company and created a mass exit of key individuals. Previous CFO, Tony, brought in people who couldn't advance the areas or the company. Tony hired "yes" people as he was afraid to hear the truth. CIO that was hired at the end of 2011 absolutely ruin the company and the IT team. Of course, this was after the CFO extended an offer to his close friend, Red Lion CIO, which he turned down. After the new CIO joined, all senior managers left technology and HR didn't once bat an eye. Losing quality people, with knowledge, integrity and the influence to positively impact on technology the company is beyond belief..

    No doubt this is going private!

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe company should look at the leaders who were there prior to 2011 and bring those back, if they would return! Hopefully the new CEO can turn it around.

    Poor management

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Spokane, WA

    ProsThe people and the companies mission. Good location and offices.

    ConsNo ability to advance. Poor management. Too many managers who make poor decisions who are still there for some reason. Seems like they are setting up this company to sell it so there is not much of a future with this company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementToo little too late.

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

    A Shady Company

    Customer Experience Coordinator (Former Employee) Spokane, WA

    ProsGood Programs but, not consistently good. Physically comfortable work environment.

    Cons-Insulated, arrogant upper management.
    -Disjointed Program Office - the right hand doesn't know what the left is doing.
    - Incredible work load and responsibility, for unincredible pay and respect.
    -Favoritism and nepotism reign in hiring and promotions, not talent.
    - Paternalistic and patronizing style of management encouraged and practiced company wide.
    - Extremely dishonest teary hiring and firing cycle.
    - Virtually no room for growth .
    - Top heavy management
    - Insulated figure-heads who do virtually no work but, who bring in triple digits.
    -Knee jerk, reactionary, last minute business practices.
    - A sinking ship

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement doesn't care for advice but, if they do take your advice don't expect any credit for it. This company will utilize your best efforts and ideas, siphon your energy, then hang you out to dry.

    If you can't boot-lick, this is not the company to work for.

    Ambassador (Current Employee) Santa Monica, CA

    ProsOnce you leave the "break-room" it is an absolute joy to be on the Promenade. The guess are wonderful as well as the vendors.

    ConsThe leadership is awful. They will make up reasons to get rid of you and some based on casual conversations you have with associates during breaks or before signing in. They will even force others, against their will, to write something negative about you. When you complain to the HR Specialist at Corporate, they do nothing about it.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't ask the targeted employee to get witnesses then do nothing with it, but instead, agree only with the office leadership. The turn over should tell you that something is wrong. Even the stake holders complain that the "good ones" are always let go.

    It was a temporary job with great promises and disappointments

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat facilities, great job if you want something temporary.

    ConsHardly any training, poor quality leads, high expectations.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet back to the roots of your organization.

    Former Manager

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsFlexible hours with the ability to work from home, good health benefits and great work out facility on site for employees

    ConsTop heavy senior management, no consistent direction for organization - always scrambling to get enrollments up - with a "throw it on the wall and see if it sticks" mentality yet their core marketing is antiquated and never truly changes for the better, org has layoffs every 6 months and but then immediately starts hiring NEW employees after lay off, low pay for most employees who are not upper management, Senior management is not forward thinking with marketing strategies, not willing to take an honest look at their ridiculously high employee turn over rate, overpriced student programs that do not offer anything out of the ordinary

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of so much top heavy management - 11 + VP's for an organization of 200 employees - really?

    They will over work, under pay and then hang you out to dry

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe mission is unbelievable!
    Building is amazing!
    They have some of the hardest working, talented and nicest people I have ever had the pleasure of working with.

    ConsIt is all a mirage. The company is failing, the building has been for sale for over a year and a half, and there always seems to be a fire. Marketing practices are shady, the turn and burn mentality leaves the company losing tribal knowledge. They are always realigning departments, making changes without giving anything a chance to work and when they are stressed for sales or retention, they throw a million different promotions or ideas together and do a poor job of communicating to their front lines and don't understand how to operationalize them based off of system functionality. The departments are very segmented and don't work together very well. Reps will often learn about new things from customers calling in rather than from someone in the same building. If you work hard, they will take advantage and then turn on you when their numbers are down. They believe new people are made of gold and ignore the people who have any kind of longevity. 90% of upper management have been there 2 years or less and if an employee has been there for more than 5 years it is rare and they are generally on their way out. Due to the cycle of change and new employees they tend to do the same things over and over again without knowing they have even been done before. Pay stinks and those who are there are over worked. Everyone who leaves feel taken advantage and bitter in the end because they worked hard, truly believed in the mission and loved the people. If you are a genuine person they chew you up and spit you out.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to the people who work hard and stay because they love the company rather than thinking new is better. Look at bad customer experience processes and how to fix those rather than placing blame and work together. Have someone who understands the details help with new promotions and how to make them work. Choose a couple things to do rather than a whole bunch of random things so you know what worked and what didn't so it can be recreated. Value the people who work hard for you because they don't get paid very well and they do it because they are passionate. Try not to be so clicky. A meeting about employment engagement survey results should not be about how 100% of Senior Leadership team members believe that things will change for the better and management is the least convinced where you then have the whole SLT team tell about themselves, joke and kid about inside jokes and expect the manager level to leave with more convictions in things changing for the better. Remember middle management is squeezed between the idea, how to do them and how to support their team.

    Once steady now a roller coaster ride

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsExcellent benefits, employees are great, flexible hours, work from home

    ConsHeavy management, not enough workers, seems like every 6 months there is a lay off, they talk transparency but they are not transparent only if it is something that will hit the papers.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement needs to figure out why employees are leaving the organization and they need to figure out why it costs more to outsource than it does to leave the work in the organization

    Great Summer Job!

    Delegate Relations Coordinator (Former Employee) Spokane, WA

    ProsCoworkers are very friendly and helpful. Very patient and would answer any and all of my questions while learning the ropes!

    ConsEarly shift hours. Some calls could be difficult. No other cons, it was a very flexible and enjoyable summer job!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
