    I worked at Corinthian Colleges full-time

    Pros

    A few senior leadership were actually talented enough to make a difference however the company was too big and sinking fast.

    Cons

    It's been a disaster of a business model. Soliciting people to a point of harrassment and charging outrageous tuition. Highway robbery company.

    I worked at Corinthian Colleges (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It was a pretty easy job. Worked with students in their Wyotech school. The salary was alright, around $35,000 a year. What you would expect for this type of position. Staying in touch with students regarding their education and coursework.

    Cons

    Sometimes students seemed unmotivated. Some of the students had a lot of family or personal issues that hindered them from finishing. High student turnover rate.

    Advice to Management

    Better student vetting process and family participation to reduce amount of students not graduating. I hear the corporation has closed so this campus may no longer be open.

    Pros

    The people were amazing, genuinely caring about students and each other. The work was challenging but very rewarding.

    Cons

    Ideological attacks on the whole sector, including Corinthian, make the future bleak, not only for employees, but for students and taxpayers. It's a shame a more informed discussion did not occur from the politicians.
