Pros

Some of the best people to work with, good benefits and a clean new office environment. Regular M-F office hours for almost all positions.

Cons

Top management has issues with delegating tasks and authority. Too many chiefs all trying to run the departments, so employees end up dealing with managers conflicting directions and priorities. Promotional opportunities are limited and very discriminatory. Turnover rate is high no matter what department you're in. Lack of training on behalf of the company is poor and the entire company is a giant rumor mill constantly turning.

Advice to Management

Listen to your employees and become part of the team instead of acting like an "untouchable executive." CKG employees need executive leaders to work with them not just "above" them.

    Better appreciate the moral dilemma that Admissions Advisers are faced with when from their experience it seems an applicant is applying for the right reasons, yet since its their wish, and there are performance metrics to achieve candid honesty is compromised.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Reduced costs to enter in degree programs the company offers, the staff that are "in the trenches" are really great people.

    Cons

    Senior management responds at a very superficial level to employee concerns, if at all. Very little communication is provided to employees. Director-level managers feel more like puppets than actual supervisors, their ability to represent their direct reports feels undermined by senior management. Too much power given to business unit leads, upsets the balance between the business units and functional team.

    Advice to Management

    Rebalance the point of power in the company and look at creating a healthier work environment. Too much leniency is afforded the business unit leads and it consistently comes at the cost of dissatisfied employees.
