    Pros

    The feeling of satisfaction and fulfillment that I get from what I'm doing here is something I've never experienced in a job before, and I truly love that! When I match a student with a site for their externship and they get hired; or when I send a grad to a job opportunity that I found, and they're hired, it feels amazing!! I would equate it to the high one gets when their horse comes in... not that that's ever happened to me, but you know what I mean. The management at my office is wonderful! I've worked for many different managers, and my Director is the BEST one yet!! The staff is great! The company has always had a culture of hiring from within, so getting your foot in the door in one dept. and being able to move to a different role within the company is not uncommon. I do believe the company is beginning to come back now, after our transition to an NPO, and we are starting to see that in new enrollments. Since our programs are Healthcare related fields, we are in an industry where the demand is extremely high, and all of the TOP employers (Providence, Swedish, Virginia Mason, The Everett Clinic, Skagit Hospital - Cascade Regional Clinics, CHC, ICHS, Walgreens, Rite Aid, Bartell, CVS, and many many more of the smaller clinics) reach out Everest seeking candidates on a regular basis! We often have more leads than we have candidates to fill them!! I recommended this company to 'friends' for these reasons, despite what I said in the other comments below.

    Cons

    The company has gone through many changes in my time here, including new ownership, which has turned us into an NPO. We had a 3 year wage freeze, and when it was finally lifted the raises were only 2-3%, which was extremely disappointing. With that, our health care benefit package changed, which takes more out of our pockets. They did increase our 401K match, I'll give them that, but it was very low to begin with. It seems like the Corporate Management team cares a great deal more about our student population, than taking care of its employees, so we end up feeling undervalued and taken advantage of. They have cut our staff back so far, that most people feel like we're having to do the jobs of at least 2 people. Unfortunately the management team at the campus level apparently has NO control over any of this.

    Advice to Management

    This is for the Corporate Management, not the campus level management: #1 TAKE CARE OF YOUR EMPLOYEES! After making it through the ugly transition to new ownership, all of the campus closures, and "RIF's" (Reduction in Force - layoffs) that we've survived, the staff that remains is surely 'the cream of the crop'! It would have been nice to have received a 'Thank you for staying on with us' bonus, and a decent raise commensurate with bringing you up to where we should have been had we not had the 3 year wage freeze! Consider paying 100% of our healthcare benefit package, which many employers (especially in the healthcare field) are now doing. Give the management at the campus level more executive authority over decisions about compensation/promotions, as well as our daily operations. You've hired excellent people, at least at my campus, now trust them to make decisions that are in the best interest of the company. You will lose good people if you don't show your employees you value them, and sending blanket emails with "thank you's" from the upper management team, that we don't even know, and who clearly don't know us, doesn't cut it! At the end of the day, as much as I truly LOVE what I do, I cannot afford to stay if I'm not compensated accordingly.
