    I worked at Education Affiliates full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Benefit package was ok. It could of been worse. There are many other companies out there that offer much better.

    Cons

    Local campuses struggle and management is awful. They set unrealistic goals and push talent out the door. It’s a used and abused mentality

    Advice to Management

    Revert back to caring about your employees. There is a monster in the forty fort location that lies and doesn’t follow the best practices. How can she lead a team with the do as I say mentality.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Education Affiliates (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Absolutely nothing. Don't even think about it.

    Cons

    Over worked, under paid, benefits are terrible. 90% of students you teach are ex-convicts , a mental institute, can't read or spell, never will be get a job but is promised from the admissions department that they'll come out making over 100k in the HVAC field straight out into the field. Nothing but a head ache and an unsafe work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Get out your bubble and realize the school is trash and needs all new lab, tools, management that's worked in the field of the studies.

      Cash out your stock and shut down already.

      Disapproves of CEO

      I worked at Education Affiliates full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Four day work weeks, No Friday classes.

      Cons

      Poor to no communication between management and instructors. Management does not support instructors. Every 6 weeks (class period) you will not know if you still have a job. Recruiters do not know how to sell programs properly. Instructors are kept in the dark.

      Advice to Management

      Communicate and be honest with employees.
