    The worst experience of my entire career!!

    Career Services (Current Employee)

    ProsThere are no pros. Just a very bad experience working there.

    ConsThe worst leadership.... excuse me, there is no leadership! Only very unethical people making money at the expense of it's employees and students. We couldn't even get students jobs because the programs were so bad. The employees are consistently being brow beaten.... horrible!

    It was very a rewarding experience

    BOA Instructor (Current Employee)
    Huntington Park, Los Angeles, CA

    ProsWorking with disenfranchised students. Many of these students come from disadvantaged households and are first generation students. As instructors, we have the opportunity to make a difference.

    ConsIf you don't have patience, persistence, and determination to teach, coach, and mentor students--- this is not the position for you.

    Advice to Senior ManagementOverall, it was a great management team!

    The students and Colleagues made my time with UEI a Wonderful experience.

    Business Instructor (Former Employee)
    Jacksonville, FL

    ProsThe school had a lot to offer its students, and a very impressive facility.

    ConsLeadership did not value its employees, and there was no job security for anyone. No matter how much we did to make our students enjoy their experience in our classroom.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe educators are the backbone of any academic arena, administration much secure a future for their academic team in order to strengthen the schools program. Students take notice when instructors they have come to appreciate up and leave abruptly. Also, its not good when students know more about what's going on in the front office; because, good news travels very slow; but, bad news is worst than a wild fire.

    Great Students- terrible Executive Director

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Morrow, GA

    ProsThe students and faculty along with the managers were a joy to work with. They were the highlight of the day!

    ConsThe Campus president was driven on making sure numbers were met, that the purpose of the school was often forgotten about. Unfortunately complaints to Corporate UEI often went unheard and unanswered.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI would advise that they pay close attention and AUDIT otherwise many lawsuits could be approaching

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