    I have been working at Career Education full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Type of Technology is interesting. The work/life balance is fair. Teams get along (for the most part). People have fun, they look out for each other, take their work seriously but still enjoy happy hours, FFL, etc. All the small stuff adds up. Looks like this place is starting to head in the right direction.

    I heard stories about what it was like a year ago and I believe it has improved significantly. When I arrived, there were some things that needed to be changed/addressed (which have been) and I can claim that the hard part is behind us. We're not out of the woods yet, but I can see the sunlight.

    Cons

    We still need to fix some process related items, improve some technological implementations, improve the quality of some products ... but we are definitely making strides.

    Advice to Management

    On the right course, don't change
