    I have been working at Allied Business Schools full-time

    Pros

    Ability to make decent income. Very good health benefits and 401k plan. LIvely, fast paced, funny atmosphere.

    Cons

    If you are a self starter and love forging your own path you will do well. If you expect management to assist in your efforts you will fail miserably.

    Advice to Management

    Help and train your lower achievers to grow. Or let them go. It's hard to watch people fail when they never had a chance.

    I worked at Allied Business Schools full-time

    Pros

    Some of the peers are great because we can all bonded under horrible management.

    Cons

    Management is pretty bad. Most of the time they are absolutely clueless about whats going on. But company has a policy "if you know someone from the top management" you are set.

    Pros

    The staff and management take great pains to include their front line customer service employees in all decisions and encourage an atmosphere of real professionalism. At the same time there is genuine camaraderie and friendship among team members

    Cons

    There are no genuine cons I can list. But this is not a place to work if you are lacking a professional demeanor.

    I worked at Allied Business Schools full-time

    Pros

    Absolutely Nothing. They preach about how they care about their students but in reality it's all about the money. Students are lied to and tricked into enrolling with them.

    Cons

    Horrible working environment. Clueless managers, absolutely no chance of promotions unless you have connections with the higher ups. Pay is at least 30% lower than industry average. Yearly raise is 1% if you get lucky. Upper managements treat you like you're in elementary school. They disrespect employees and monitor everything, including how many bath room breaks you take. This is a dead end job. You see people leaving left and right because anyone remotely good would jump at a different opportunity. Don't waste your time working at this company, you'll regret it.

    Advice to Management

    Try to at least treat employees like human beings.

    Pros

    The CEO walks around and greets people in the mornings sometimes. He is very friendly and open. The people here are great to work with and very open to ideas.

    Cons

    There really isn't anything bad about working here. The people are nice, pay is good, convenient to highways and you are helping people better their lives.

    Advice to Management

    Just to keep doing what you are doing but try to focus more on updating things a little more.

    I worked at Allied Business Schools full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Quality courses, established company, decent benefits, overall good people

    Cons

    Low starting pay, no OT, chained to desk, tiered pay structure based on unrealistic numbers, some fools in management, instability all the way up to upper management - layoffs are common

    Advice to Management

    Pay better, show more concern for actual graduation rates than just pushing products, offer incentives for employees!

    Pros

    This company offers a lot of opportunities to those that work hard and put themselves out there to be part of the organization. You are not just another employee, you are part of the company where they are open to new ideas. Employees are all nice and seem happy in their jobs. Many employees have been able to move up within the company so that is good to see.

    Cons

    Not a lot of recognition to help staff keep up the motivation, but it is still a good place to work. Would like to see more things done to bring the employees together during work hours, such as lunches or meetings to get to know people.

    Advice to Management

    They do a good job, but it would be nice to see more involvement from the top management.

    Pros

    Do good sales then you'll get paid a little more.

    Cons

    There's a revolving door. If you don't meet your quota then you'll feel stressed about sales.
