    I worked at Everest College full-time

    Pros

    They provided a steady pay check

    Cons

    They ripped off their students by selling the student an educational product that they could not afford and most importantly, did not offer the quality of education relative to their clients needs.

    I worked at Everest College (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Hardworking staff, appreciative students. Good benefits at the time. Decent facilities to start, where I was. Initially, allowed staff to be inventive and energizing, with good results.

    Cons

    Upper level managers made poor choices, especially in new hires. Allowed poor leaders to continue in their position. No pay advances for several years. New edicts and programs from corporate which failed.

    Advice to Management

    Sold to Zenith, a non-profit organization, for pennies on the dollar. Zenith is now closing most of the schools. They obviously bit off more than they could chew.

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    There is not a single pro of which I can think. A simple Google search of this organization will tell you all you need to know about its business practices.

    Cons

    There are many cons of which I can think. But again, a simple Google search of this organization will tell you all you need to know about its business practices.

    Advice to Management

    I do not have any advice for management. However, it was my observation during the time i was employed that the people placed in leadership of this organization were neither role models nor leaders.

    I worked at Everest College full-time

    Pros

    People at the Schools are the only redeeming value for Zenith.

    Cons

    Poor Senior Management who are clueless. Weak RVPOs and Corporate support. No strategic nor tactical direction. Poor decision making.

    Advice to Management

    get a real operator in place at the senior level and at the schools. Academic people pretending they know how to operate the schools is unbelievable.

    Pros

    Great team, Great DOA, and good pay.

    Cons

    Reputation of Everest has been damaged for quite some time now so convincing students to attend this school is NOT easy at all. New company bought it out and a massive layoff was created.

    Pros

    Rewarding job. Preparing students for success

    Cons

    Company doesn't treat employees well. Constant firings without notice. Closed campus with only 2 week notice to employees and students.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees more. They are the ones that keep your school's afloat. It is not acceptable to let people go from their jobs without notice. They have lives, bills, and families as well.
