    I worked at Everest College part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    None unless you are on campus

    Cons

    School provides a poor quality education to students and takes advantage of them. Anyone one says this is a great school and they helped student succeed, that means they bullied professors to give away grades that were were not earned. Students have a false sense of being a 4.0 student when they are barely C students.

    Advice to Management

    Change out staff and treat staff well. Focus on providing a true education and hold students accountable. Worst school and as an HR professional, I let others know not to hire these students. Poor writing skills on all students, plus student and staff bully professors. Management has a big disconnect from reality and managers are all micromanagers.
