    I have been working at Laureate Education full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent Pay
    Great Benefits
    Could be the future of higher ed

    Cons

    Upper level management has completely abdicated control of the day to day to grossly inept, small minded middle management.
    Rampant favoritism.
    Non-existent raises except for those who who seriously kiss up
    Stealth Layoffs that completely kill morale

    Advice to Management

    Actually pay some attention to what mid level mgt is doing in your name. Come down from the ivory tower and pay attention to what the rank and file are doing. We all feel that we have to please our managers rather than do what's best for the organization.

    The old model is dead. Wake up, hire some effective folks and stop talking about a healthy organization if you are not really committed to change. Stop allowing middle management abuse of the rank and file.

    You will lose more folks who you really need if you do not reward them and continue to allow raises only for those that middle management likes.
