    I have been working at Career Education full-time

    Pros

    No overtime required. Nice facilities.

    Cons

    No raises. Stupid policy changes made to nickel and dime students.

    Advice to Management

    Happy employees do better work. Also you spend so much money training new people instead of keeping the ones you have. You need to provide raises.
