    I worked at Career Education full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Big company, owns school in culinary, art and design, online colleges, healthcare and int'l.

    Cons

    They lost over 10 mil this year, over 900 layoffs in Dec 2012 and over 1000 a year or two ago. They've downsized to the point that I can't see how many roles left could be cut and still operate. They just closed 23 campuses nationally and I'm pretty sure will see that many more close in the next 24 months or so. I think they will start to shift to mostly online schools and let leases expires at on ground schools and do teach outs.

    Advice to Management

    Supporting an industry like culinary when the placement rates are so low and their expected income is the same as someone getting the job with no college degree/cert isn't the right thing to do. Dollars need to be allocated to those schools that can provide the degrees that will get the grads jobs and careers. Emphasis has been on listening to the campuses this last year but I never saw anyone listening.. Major decisions made all the time without even a campus President's buy in. Programs being changed when no one agreed, programs being pushed that no one wanted to enroll for, and competing schools both owned by CEC and near each other offering the same programs cannibalizing the business.. So many felt lucky to be let go and so many more actually hoping their campuses will close. Those people used to be major believers in the brand and what they do, CEC is to blame for that shift, not gainfull employment or Obama, but the decisions they've made and the aftermath therein.
