    Pros

    Openess, Diversity and a sense of accomplishment when it comes to my work. Recognition and an overwhelming feeling of actually helping someone. A true testament to the company goals and values that have been established within the company.

    Cons

    Slow Growth, and lack of upward mobility seem to be only drawback to the position. Management is trying to work on that as much as they can. Its a problem when so many great people work in one place. Everyone here, serves a purpose and is driven to attain the goal of giving no matter who it is 110%. I have never worked for a company that trust and believes in its workforce so much. Many companies say they do, this is the only one that I have worked at that practices this philosophy on a daily basis.

    Advice to Management

    None. They know what they are doing. I stand behind them 110%

    Pros

    Experienced & committed executive leadership team
    Company takes integrity issues & core values seriously
    Solid benefits package
    National company allows for a lot of internal transfers
    Company culture revolves around putting students first

    Cons

    Proprietary education is a tough industry. For-profit schools are constantly under intense scrutiny and are always susceptible to regulations from Washington that are eternally changing. Also, because CCi is a publically-traded company, a lot of key initiatives must first receive approval from Board of Directors.

    Pros

    Positive environment based on improving the lives of people who just need someone to believe in them.
    Enough resources to do the job

    Cons

    A for-profit college is certainly a different environment than a public institution, but the students who take advantage of what they are paying for get a great education.

    Advice to Management

    Please try to increase budgets for the tech programs. We can't deliver the best training without the tools! A dedicated IT lab with current equipment and resources would benefit the students immeasurably.

    Cons

    The phone database needs to be updated! A lot of the time your calling the same students more than once and that makes them lose leads.

    Keep doing what your doing! Helping people! :-)
