    I worked at Everest College full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Great training programs for employees
    - Able to complete colleges courses while employed
    - The majority of management were great to work with -- until a huge change in management.
    - Pay, 401K and vacation was decent

    Cons

    - Drastic change in management which, in my mind, concreted my suspicion of upper managements views to $$$$$$$ only.
     - Sadly, over my 3 years working at Everest I felt a change from the top all the way down to the shift in management. It truly became all about the #'s, not about the students nor the employees.

    Advice to Management

    I am hoping that after their name change and being investigated by the federal government for their shady ways they've changed their ways. Lowered their prices for programs and stop their preying tactics.
