    I worked at Vatterott College full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Faculty and staff are trained on an ongoing basis. Students who enroll to make their life better, graduate and find good career positions. Faculty are student-centered by choice and most have master's degrees and field experience.

    Cons

    This does not apply for Vatterott.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you do. Rehire employees who regret leaving Vatterott.

    Pros

    You can learn a lot about meanness. Its like being managed by a clique in highschool.

    Cons

    The rules and policies change with the wind. Management thinks they are more intelligent than they really are, a lot like Donald Trump. Decisions are often arbitrary and capricious. Whatever you might have learned in any management class, they choose the opposite. Its kind of lord of the flies style management.

    Pros

    It's a place you would work at only to obtain the experience but not a place you would enjoy working on a long term basis.

    Cons

    Turn over rate is high, and student retention rate is low

    Pros

    Unappreciated member of the work force. Should you like micro management. this is for you.

    Cons

    Gorilla, gestapo "management" at its micro managing best. Supposed corporate structure runs the show from the ivory palace, they are out of touch with reality. One star only because this site required it

    Advice to Management

    Keep the free thinkers with a thought process on board...get rid of the 'CEO' and the other corporate dead wood. When asking individuals campuses for input head and consider the advice rather than immediately chastise. How they have stayed in business while employing their current "business model" is beyond all rality.
