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

    Pros

    The Laramie school is the best! The standards for the students and the faculty are high. The education offered to the students is top notch. The people that work at WyoTech-Laramie are wonderful! The benefits and pay are GOOD, not great, but for Laramie, better than average. The new owners speak the language of typical business double-talk, but they are generous and truly seem to want the best for their employees.

    Cons

    The corporate management is questionable. The ownership changed as of Feb. 2015 due to problems at the corporate level. Many of the bad middle-managers from the previous corporation moved over to the new one. They seem to be making the same bad decisions at the middle-management level. The schools no longer have representatives out in the field recruiting new students, like they did when the schools were most successful. Unfortunately, there is little-to-no effective recruitment and enrollment is still deminishing.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the managers (middle/corporate level) that were brought over from CCI. Put reps back out on the field where they can actually come into contact with the prospective students. "In-house" reps simply are good enough. They really need to come in direct contact with the students. The commercials made with Jessi Combs a couple years ago need to be shown at times when responsible parents and students actually watch TV, not at 3:00 AM.

    I worked at WyoTech full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Before CCi went under it was an okay place to be

    Cons

    The thornton colorado branch in particular is the buddy system. As long as your friends with your manager you're good. The second you quit kissing up to management, you will be written up strategically and they will let you go. They will write you up for things where you cannot receive unemployment either. Very corrupt.

    Advice to Management

    Corruption will catch you one day.....

    I have been working at WyoTech full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I love the team that I work with and enjoy going to work every day. I enjoy being able to assist students with preparing for their careers in the motorcycle and marine industries

    Cons

    There is a lot of unrest in the corporate level and causes a lot of undue stress on employees. WyoTech would be better as a stand alone company than to be associate with Corinthian Colleges.

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach. Do what is best for our students...not what gets you your annual bonus.


  11. Great Team

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    We have a great small team. Although there are high pressure times, the support system from upper management is awesome!

    Cons

    Communication between various departments is a constant challenge, especially admissions and finance. The admissions team creates the process, but does not follow it themselves.

    Advice to Management

    Admissions needs to be held accountable more frequently.
