    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Phila, PA
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Phila, PA

    I worked at Star Career Academy full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I worked at Star for 3 months before being laid off and found nothing truly positive about my experience, the company or the work environment.

    Cons

    Company runs on the CHEAP. I was 'laid off" in order to bring in a lower paid worker - who by the way is said to be a friend of the executive director.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is no advice that could be given to management as those that hold the reigns DO NOT seek out or respect the opinions of anyone who works for this company.

    Pros

    The best reason to work for Star Career Academy is the fact that you will be able to help a lot of people fulfill their dreams of getting a specialized education.

    Cons

    Some of the downsides of working for Star Career Academy is the fact that there is limited opportunity for career advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice I would give to management is to groom great employees for the next level in their careers and present them with an opportunity to grow!

    I have been working at Star Career Academy full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    None- Do not take a job with this company unless you are really hurting for one

    Cons

    Managers yell at you, sexually harass you, belittle you, and corporate just turns the other cheek when current employees complain. Strong sales oriented admissions department students are viewed as numbers and nothing more. This school is getting rich off the poor and as admissions reps we are trained with horrible sales tactics. We sell our programs to students by targeting their pain and promise a career that pays minimum wage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire qualified people as managers

    I worked at Star Career Academy full-time

    Pros

    Instructors go above and beyond and generally care about the students

    Cons

    I hear the NY campus has started a union, good for them, maybe the equipment, working conditions and overall morale will improve.

    Wake up and realize education is not just a business

    I have been working at Star Career Academy full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Dedicated instructing and admin staff who needs to be heard.

    Cons

    Management- from the top of the company an unsuccessful management team from another failing career school has taken over and employees are feeling the pain from their incompetence. Employee morale is at its lowest and students feel the turmoil.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire proven successful managers to get us back on our feet. Please remember our mission is to educate the student. Do it right and good things will follow.
