    Amazing teachers and amazing management.

    I worked at Everest College (More than a year)

    Pros

    Co-workers were nice, with the occasional upset employee that flew around buzzing negative vibes, but you get that in any company or industry you work at. The key is to keep focused on the positives right?

    Cons

    The cons were the unprofessional mannerism that management at times would display. However, they are human as well. It was not an atmosphere where you felt you were helping people obtain a great education. The pressure from the sales department to get people in- the mode was to get them in and have them sign up for school right then and there. Often times people felt pressured and my job was to advise them on how it could be affordable for them. Taking out secondary loans to cover the cost of their tuition didn't sit well with them personally. It is a shame the school closed- I hope the people had their loans reversed as many could not find jobs in the medical field with their degree there as a Medical Assistant. I didn't blame the salespeople as they had stressful jobs to meet their quotas, but it puts a different negative dynamic. Less helping and more hustle the closing of the deal.

    Pros

    co-workers/team/"Campus family" is picked well.... We all cared about our students' success, were professional, and went the extra mile for them.

    Cons

    Corporate/Upper-Level Mgmt. make poor decisions at the cost of the student, and Most importantly the employees. Adding undue stress to our roles in order to profit. Bad formula for success.

    Advice to Management

    Sacrifice a quick buck now, to rebuild your reputation in an industry that already has a poor image/"black-eye", within the community. You picked the right front-line people to do the job. Now its time to live up to your integrity statements, by truly caring most about the students success vs. them simply enrolling in your institution.
