    This place is what you make of it.

    Pros

    Good pay, good benefits. The satisfaction of getting students to learn and seeing them on a career path is something that some people continue to maintain with a positive attitude.

    Cons

    Some managers treat it as business with their attitude. The business must run, but do not forget that the main goal should be to help people and provide a service. You do not need to be a jerk to have a successful business.

    Good Résumé Bullet

    Sep 26, 2022 - MA Instructor 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    I was given so much work to do by myself and with an inadequate curriculum that I now qualify for a better job making more money. The students can be great, co-workers can be awesome…until your metrics conflict with theirs. Good PTO and sick policy, but you’ll be seen as a non “team player” for using it.

    Cons

    Management from Program Director position up is a joke. All they care about is retention to get students’ money. Students are enrolled that cannot speak English, that have serious medical conditions, and that are legally unemployable. “Raise” was 2% and not based on individual performance. Max raise was 3%. You’re punished for being talented and for students liking you too much. No matter how much you give this place, it will never be enough. There’s no work-life balance. This is not a long-term company. Turnover is high at all positions and leadership does nothing to retain actual talent.

    Pros

    Rewarding to help students achieve their goals.

    Cons

    Poor leadership, poor communication, unorganized, under staffed, underpaid. No time off unless you find someone to take over your responsibilities, but there is not enough staff to cover! Stressful, high anxiety to meet goals without enough support. High turnover. No valuation of what you do. As a for profit company, numbers seem more important than the value of employees. Culture is exclusive. No confidence in management. Did not feel like a team. New curriculum is full of mistakes.
