    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.
