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

    Pros

    The students were inspiring, as well as the Campus Presidents, Directors and instructors.

    Cons

    There was poor communication between Corporate and Campuses. In addition, division's leadership were perceived as unethical and immoral. (Especially the Admission or Sales teams)

    Advice to Management

    Company closed now but the executive team should have been following the motto, "No lying, cheating or stealing".

    Pros

    Great pay. Provided students the opportunity to have an education who otherwise would not have been able to enter college.

    Cons

    Little more stable leadership. Leadership was always in transition because of the demands placed on the college, it was difficult to identify a leader that could turn the ship around.

    Advice to Management

    Transparency is very important to faculty, staff, and students. That should always be a top priority no matter how difficult the times.

    Pros

    There were plenty of advancement opportunities at one time before the regulatory problems. At one time they were a company that cared about the employee and student

    Cons

    Well with the fall of the co0mpany last year this is an obvious one. I think Zenith will help turn it around, but it will never be the same company that it once was.

    Advice to Management

    Get back to focusing on the student, quit worrying about lining your pockets with money.

    Pros

    Great recruitment, training and development, and team atmosphere. The contact center management team was very supportive and willing to make necessary improvements.

    Cons

    Senior management mishandled the business causing regulatory/legal problems that caused the loss of hundreds of jobs.

    Pros

    The CEO was the living embodiment of integrity. There were some really amazing people who used to work here. The values were real and they mattered to a select few, and it was great working with those people. The mission of the company was spot on.

    Cons

    Middle management was like a cancer of poor decision making abilities and a proclivity to corruption. Not enough people doing the right thing. Poor use of company funds to finance personal trips and entertainment. Improper relationships and behaviors with zero consequences (i.e. going late night clubbing with subordinates and direct reports and then both parties failing to show up to work the next morning and calling in "sick"). No accountability. You could lie, cheat, and steal (and people did), and it would never see a consequence or punishment in the light of day. My heart aches to think of the endless amount of cons because this place used to be great. The founders of this company should still be proud.

    Advice to Management

    It's never too late to do the right thing. To the leaders who allowed something amazing crumble to countrywide rubble heaps of broken dreams of more education and a better life, be better tomorrow than you were yesterday. Leadership isn't a position or a title; it's a responsibility to care for the organizational health of the company, the well-being of your people, and to steer the ship straight.
