    Great Company

    Pros

    Have a system already set up for you to follow. What you put in is what you get. Can take a while to grow a decent recurring bonus if you start at a new branch. But overall the company offers a lot of support to help you get where you need to be.

    Cons

    The management and leadership style is to make you nervous for losing your job if you don't succeed. There can be rocky times where you can't enroll many students and the price increases for the program that you sell quite frequently. The job is designed to get a little tougher each day, so you have to find new ways to be more efficient each day.

    Pros

    Work life balance Opportunity to meet some wonderful people who come through as students

    Cons

    Pay structure is horrible Expectations are ridiculous when they have a call center that will send anyone to you with out prescreening to see if can even enroll or not and then corporate judges you on your numbers based on call center scheduled appointments which are usually people who have been lied to on the phone to get in the door

    Pros

    There is no pros to working for this company. The students make the job bearable.

    Cons

    There is poor upper management. Communication is lacking and company simply doesn't care about employees or students, its all about the money. They exploit employees and the pay is not adequate for the amount of work and time you are expected to put in. Worst company I ever worked for.
