    I worked at CSI (Computer Systems Institute) full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    - Great body of students - Teachers and advisers are invested in student success - Sponsored professional development - Likes to promote from within - Gives students work opportunities

    Former Employee - Admissions Counselor in Elgin, IL
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at CSI (Computer Systems Institute) full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Honestly none that I can think of except the students.

    Cons

    Worthless leads, horrible management. Constant lies to staff and students with threats of termination if we didnt go along with it. Probably why they lost their creditation and their Elgin campus closed with no notice I might add after they told us all was well. Like I said constant lies.

    Advice to Management

    Honestly I won't waste my time since you won't listen.

      Disapproves of CEO

      I have been working at CSI (Computer Systems Institute) full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      -If you have never had professional experience before, this company has plenty of entry level opportunities for you to hone some skill to put on your resume. But please leave as soon as possible.

      Cons

      -Compensation does not amount to other schools with same position. -HR does not care for you and do their job properly. -Communication from Illinois Management to MA staff is practically zero percent.

      Advice to Management

      I'm literally writing this review in hopes that Management can actually listen to me and my fellow staff members instead of using evidence to continuously punish us, even though we all slave away to every student's needs with no appreciation.
