I worked at Career Education full-time (More than a year)
Benefits, Co-workers, Management, and Location
I just couldn't do collections anymore. That was the main reason I left.
I have been working at Career Education part-time (More than 10 years)
Ability to have a flexible schedule, pay (if you have been here for a long time), a lot of friendships made with fellow employees, can be a fun atmosphere at times
Cap out at 4 weeks vacation time after 10 yrs, not given much sick time, lower mgmt does not have to follow same rules as employees (I.e. Attendance policies), lower mgmt "comfortable" in their positions, limited, no room for growth
Advice to Management
Lower mgmt needs ongoing manager training, also need to be reevaluated the same as employees are & to see how efficient they really are in their position (and if they should still be in that position)

Good money and had opportunities.
Questionable management, there was a lot of uncertainty

Reception Coordinators meet and greet all guests fafe to face and on the phone. Some of them are big names in the Culinary world and that was exciting.
As with most corporate employers who sell stock, the investors are heeded more than the people on the ground in the stores or in this case schools. Poor judgement and decisions lead to unemployment for several thousands.

Leadership, benefits, casual work environment
Industry reputation , going through downsizing
I have been working at Career Education (More than a year)
a lot of young people work here, mostly b/c the older ones have all been fired. But easy to make friends right out of college.
Extremely Stressful, bad hours, turn over is insane they are constantly firing people, do not recommend working here
I have been working at Career Education full-time (More than 5 years)
Flexible hours and good benefits
Salary increase and career advancement is slow
I worked at Career Education full-time
Great education benefits for employees
Poor top level management ran the company to the ground
I have been working at Career Education full-time (More than 8 years)
Regular 40 hour workweek
Very little value in the employee (high turnover in Admissions)
Boring culture, very little motivation for employee outside of performing to keep our positions
Unrealistic expectations (enrollment) when working with our particular student demographic
Very little room for advancement, those that move up are "Management Favorites/Buddies"
Inconsistent raises, very small percentage regarding raise
A micromanagement-based culture
Advice to Management
It's all about being a great place to work, positively motivating your employees via perks/bonuses/raises, and a positive culture...all of which upper management doesn't promote
In Admissions, look more into the "process" and challenge with how to attain enrollments, not just "numbers"...there is A HUGE disconnect with upper management and lower departments, such as Admissions

Enjoyed coming to work, fun projects, great team players, wide variety of projects, 401k match, low cost medical benefits, HSA medical plan option, yoga classes for a fee. Great location, ample parking. Very nice building.
No regular work from home options, projects started then cancelled after much work was put in, no raises for non exempt employees at least during my time there. Parking garage has seen better days.
