I worked at Corinthian Colleges full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Good Benefits which include paid time off, vacation, sick days, holiday pay, health, dental, vision, life ins, short term and long term disability, 401 k

Cons

More reactive than proactive. Not enough overseeing of managers. Not enough incentives for employees and not equally distributed at each campus.

Advice to Management

While I was there I saw so much money being literally thrown away due to very poor or no planning before implementing projects coming from corporate management.
I was one of the emloyees that was laid off due to downsizing. Many positions would have been saved if all of that money wouldn't have been wasted. And it was a lot of money.
Also managers, and directors need to be overseen more and properly trained. There are some that totally lack people skills and create a very negative environment with a lot of anxiety within the department. Lack of team work between departments also is very substantial and creates a serious issues.
Also, it became very apparent in certain situations, that what we were doing was not for the student's good, it was for the company's good. If the focus remains on the student, everything else will fall into place.

    I worked at Corinthian Colleges full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Hardworking, dedicated employees, good benefits (but with high employee contribution)

    Cons

    Poor work/life balance, long hours, always changing what is important, wastes a lot of money

    Advice to Management

    Consistency, focus on employees work/life balance, doesn't always have to be a "right now" message and everyhing is not top priority/urgent

    Pros

    Student Body. Management who care about students. Good management so they can keep the doors open. Rules and procedures for both students and faculty clearly articulated. Academic freedom is not infringed upon. Management wants faculty to develop ways to motivate students they don't dictate a lot. Management team meets daily to develop invovatitive methods to increase student retention. No pressure to pass anyone. All the school asks is that the student is formally advised ahead of time and a plan developed that if followed will result in the students passing.

    Cons

    Lousy pay. Recognition program that covers all employees except faculty.

    Advice to Management

    Pay competitive salaries for faculty. Include them in the recognition program
