Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at Career Education full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

High salaries paid, new corporate facilities to bring employees from multiple buildings together

Cons

Whole company is dysfunctional, each brand operates independently, student recruiting practices are unethical, students graduate with piles of debt and look forward to low paying salary jobs

Advice to Management

Reel em in. Do not let every brand create their own rules from scratch. Reuse the learned best practices

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Career Education full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I had a great supervisor who was always supported me and gave great advice.

    Cons

    The upper management took little interest in the welfare of the students and my interaction with the students always had the underlying question "how can I get their money?"

    Advice to Management

    Continue improving the brands. Reward talented admissions employees to help with employee retention rates. Continue working driving an ethical culture. Things will continue to improve.
