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

    Pros

    Coworkers are great, lots of windows with a view. This was a great place to work until they started implementing some really bad business practice

    Cons

    Management is atrocious, they change things on a weekly basis back and forth because they have no idea what they are doing, they use scare tactics that border on illegal HR practice. If you don't mind documenting every time you get up from your desk and the reason why (even if only for a few seconds) and having very pushy car sales type managers then this is the place for you

    Advice to Management

    You are sitting on a mass amount of unused talent in your employees, rather than treating them like mindless drones and pushing for higher numbers while trying to squeeze them into submission. Try making it a happy place to work and your attrition will go down and your sales numbers will go up

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

    Pros

    Nice location, paid parking, office is close to the freeway exit/entrance, nice building, it's great to take walks around the pond/lake owned by the neighboring office building.

    Cons

    A lot of questionable ethics in this organization. The execs take 7 figure bonuses while laying people off. The contractors aren't paid on time, or in any regular/predictable fashion. Supervisors are either micromanagers, or total idiots who don't care about anything (except covering their own tail). There's not a lot of people in this organization who have real business experience outside of this organization (or similar dysfunctional for-profit education corporations).

    You have to watch your backside at all times. The goal isn't to hire the best and the brightest - it's to hire people who will do what they are told without asking questions or caring about the consequences.

    The business relies heavily on Title IV funding from the federal government, but the executives openly say things like, "The government should mind its own business!" when it comes to expecting students to get a good enough education to pay back student loans.

    Advice to Management

    Take some classes in business ethics, and business management.
