    Pros

    None. Students were protected. Employees were thrown to the wolves...

    Cons

    It is June of 2016. I spent 17 years with Corinthian and cannot prove one day of it. Corinthian left NO mechanism for employees to verify their work history. My rating is less than 1.

    I worked at Corinthian Colleges full-time

    Pros

    We had good health benefits, and even though the company was not good, the quality of people they attracted was excellent - some of the best I've ever worked with.

    Cons

    Awful business practices, high turnover, inept management, inconsistent feedback/policies/procedures across different sites, failure to recognize achievement.

    Advice to Management

    Completely change the company culture and business practices. Being dishonest with students and taking advantage of hard-working employees is why this company was so awful.

    This was a great company but quickly ran out of cash flow to stay in business.

    I worked at Corinthian Colleges full-time

    Pros

    decent salary for a private organization and higher than most organizations for the same position. Training and onboarding was fun and engaging since we were the first employees working at the Corinthian Colleges' Everest College. Good benefits, team oriented environment and multiple departments (always cross-functioning). The interaction with clients was good for the most part because there are always new things to learn from them.

    Cons

    Upper management were selfish and unorganized. They condescend lower level employees and do anything they can to keep you stagnant in horrible positions. High turnover rates especially for admissions, education, and student finance department. During my time there, someone was fired for telling a student that financial aid is guaranteed while he was on the phone with them. A director who did not like the employee was the one who contacted hr and reported him. Many incidents like this occurred there, putting employees in constant fear and in search of jobs all the time. There was so much hostility and dysfunction due to upper management abusing company time (because they are salaried) and rude employees gossiping and trying to get people fired. Another issue was career services performing poorly, getting paid higher salaries than some other departments, people calling out, quitting, and not placing students with jobs while other departments were overworked. My time there was both positive & mostly negative

    Advice to Management

    No advice needed because the organization has dissolved. Thank goodness!!
