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

    Pros

    Competitive salaries, location, free coffee

    Cons

    Little vacation and personal leave, no opportunities for professional development, unqualified coworkers allowed to undermine and even bypass the work of qualified staff, boring uninspiring office atmosphere, and you better be in the "in crowd" to have any chance of succeeding here

    Advice to Management

    Empower staff to own their positions, and give them the professional courtesy and trust earned by years of work experience

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

    Pros

    The work is challenging and not boring because the company has been growing so quickly. The people overall are very nice and intelligent. Downtown Baltimore location is a nice spot, but they're putting more people in Columbia, MD and Poland.

    Cons

    The company has NO clear strategy - anytime you hear something, it likely changes within weeks. Work/life balance is non-existent for many employees. Promotions and new opportunities are extremely political. Employees are just not valued by the executive leaders. HR department is unhelpful and certain members of it are downright hostile (not a great idea for HR!). Aggressive financial targets have led to layoffs in the past several months.

    Advice to Management

    Stop preaching about "healthy organization" and actually listen to what your employees have to say. Set realistic financial targets rather than stretching every year. Good progress has been made on cleaning up some of the executive staff, but there are still several left that need to go.
