    I worked at Concorde Career Colleges full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I loved working with passionate students in the medical field.

    Cons

    At times the left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing and this becomes a break in communication from Corp. office in KS to local campuses.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the little people that make it happen everyday and take some advice and fix what is broken by making sure the right people are being held accountable.

    I worked at Concorde Career Colleges full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I worked here for almost 4 years. I would have to say that the best experience I had was only in helping the students and I have met and kept some very close associates that I remain in contact with today.

    Cons

    Good Ol' Boy system. If you do not follow your "leaders" , you will not make it long there. Several counts of disorganization and lost vision of student focus in multiple departments because of systematic influence. VERY political and not a cohesive environment for colleagues in general, gossip style environment.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on your overall employee happiness. If they are not happy where they work, do not expect a positive output of work. Encouragement and constructive criticism goes a long way. In addition to, if you are a leader and can not speak in an educated fashion about what your subordinates do day by day, take the chance to learn from them instead of point the finger when something goes wrong.

    I worked at Concorde Career Colleges part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    For Part time you get holiday pay, Sick time, and vacation time. If you have a nice Program Director as long as you do your job teaching and keeping students happy you won't have any problems

    Cons

    If you have a "thumbs down" Campus President who is a dictator and does not know how to lead or communicate then you will hate your life and job. Lucky for me, I didn't deal with the campus president who can care less for his employees or students he only cares about his 6 figure income and numbers.

    Advice to Management

    The company is a great company to work for but all the money you make off of each student you can pay your Instructors more! Your admissions reps shouldn't make more than your instructors. And spy on the campus presidents to make sure they are holding the same qualities as the CEO who seems to be a really nice guy; I don't think he would be too fond of the Orlando campus presidents sucky personality or lack of integrity.

    I worked at Concorde Career Colleges part-time

    Pros

    No micromanaging if your PD is nice and no dealing with patients. Real laid back position just do your job, teach and show up and you'll do fine.

    Cons

    The students act like 3rs graders and the company caters to the students even if they lack the ability to use common sense.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, put more responsibility on the students for their actions don't blame the instructors.
