    Great place to work, but not to make any money.

    I have been working at Unitek Information Systems full-time

    Pros

    Upper management is responsive to most employee on-the-job needs. There is a good culture in place, and friendly coworkers.

    Cons

    The benefits are scanty, and the pay is worse. That really sums it up completely. I'm only typing more in order to meet the 20 word minimum.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fix salaries to match regional norms and get some decent healthcare (dental and visin) options.

    I have been working at Unitek Information Systems

    Pros

    They do a great job hiring good people. The new hires are bright eyed and hopeful that success is coming. Many sales reps are team players.

    Cons

    The management and executive team do not treat their employees well. The work environment at Unitek Education is not a positive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Congratulations Cressey, for bringing in a new CEO.

  3.  

    Fun people, but management will take advantage if you let them.

    I have been working at Unitek Information Systems full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people they hire are typically energetic and fun, which goes a long way towards making the day go by quickly. It does seem like they care about the product the put out (nursing and IT students), which is not normal,for a "for profit" college. Most for profits don't care about things like job placement and graduation rates. The fact that Unitek does allows you to be proud of what you do.

    Cons

    The pay is so far below the area norm, many people don't even make the bell curve, much less the bottom of it. This leads to a high turnover rate and loss of skilled employees. Unitek's belief that they can replace people at will and pay them whatever they want may soon be their downfall. If things continue this way, they will either turn into one of the typical and hated for-profit schools, or go out of business entirely.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your people what they're worth. It's a shame that you have built up such a great institution that gives back to the community in so many ways, only to now let it become something shameful or to lose it entirely. Invest in people and it will return to you ten-fold.

    Pros

    This is a very friendly environment to work in.
    Everyone is receptive and accepting of each others' cultures.
    Management is understanding and flexible.
    Management takes care of you and trains you; expect to push and challenge yourself.
    Unitek is in it's growth phase and is expanding.

    Cons

    Noticeable turnover rate. People are always looking for the next company to move to.
    People are generally stuck at their position except for one or two exceptions.
    Somewhat low salary and compensation.
    Sometimes a little disorganized.
    Currently there is construction going on near the building which might be distracting.
    Depending on your position, be prepared to work longer than usual.

    Pros

    Parts of the company are doing well and carrying this part on their backs.

    Cons

    The way they treat their employees is not conducive to open and honest communication. There is a big divide between management and front line employees. Management does not know how to show appreciation or respect. This is evidenced by the revolving door; even management keeps turning over. There is no sense of security and now they are changing everything we once knew. And, they are doing it without talking to the rank and file to get their input.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change is good. But, change for change's sake is destructive. You need to find out what your employees need from you to be successful, what ideas they have for improvements and let them know your vision and what to expect next. Or...the door will keep revolving.

    Pros

    Its a small company but has a lot of potential for growth. probably one of the best nursing schools in California.

    Cons

    Managers are somewhat inexperienced and people often get promoted based on their complaints about other manger instead of getting promoted on merit and hard work.
    High turn over due to managers not being able to retain good employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please consider a fair performance review systema. Reward your career services department, they work tirelessly and are rarely appreciated nor promoted.

    Pros

    Very supportive work environment for those who bring new ideas to the table. Management is willing to listen, and the school will invest properly in resources if idea takes off.

    Cons

    Investment in employees is minimal. Make sure to invest enough time in yourself to get the most out of working there, and be aware that this is a profit oriented business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more in employees and training. Will help with long term retention

    Last-luster benefits. Does not promote employee training to help company excel. No sense of security. No review structure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide staff ability to get training. Provide at least an annual review. Increase benefits package. Better options and use of Vacation and Sick time.
