    I worked at Everest Institute part-time

    Pros

    I enjoyed getting people trained and skilled so that they could provide for their families.

    Cons

    IT'S FOR A PROFIT!! Start new students in the middle of a MOD instead of letting the program start anew.

    Advice to Management

    Overhaul!

    I have been working at Everest Institute full-time

    Pros

    Having the opportunity to see a student succeed that may not have been successful elsewhere.

    Cons

    Management has no idea what they are doing. The only thing is consistent is change. Compliance issues, etc. There is no longer anyone willing to motivate you.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the team. When they are not happy, don't just push to the side

    I worked at Everest Institute full-time

    Pros

    I worked with a Wonderful Team, we were like family. Some of the Directors, employees, and Instructors were Awesome. and even the Students. Helping to change someone's future was great. Coming to work was a Joy.

    Cons

    All About numbers, not the students. Corp got the big $$ we didn't, eventually got laid off, severance was sad after being there for years. Some selfish, self-serving ppl in management. Corporate did what Corp does in most cases, made sure they were financially stable and left .Good employees that cared about the students stayed , were not appreciated , just expected to keep producing and eventually, laid off.

    Advice to Management

    To Corporate, when you have quality, producing employees treat them as such. Pay them well, so they're inspired to continue to produce. Set realistic goals. Managers, help your team reach set goals. Don't just coach from the sidelines with a bullhorn. Be a leader that gets in the trenches "aka" gets on the phones too!!!

    Pros

    The organization is student centric and focused on helping empower our community one life at a time

    Cons

    The stigma of the former business practices when under CCI. The creation of new opportunities and the challenge of defining job descriptions and expectations. Harnessing all resources to be successful in lead generating.

    Advice to Management

    to continue exploring ways to partner with community leaders and to continue to communicate the goals and expectations of new positions, taking into consideration the tangibles gained in the process of discovery

    I worked at Everest Institute full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The team in admissions stuck together and had each others best intentions in mind. My specific DOA had a great team focus.

    Cons

    My time with career services was difficult due to management changes and ownership changes. That type of uncertainty is difficult to navigate through.

    Advice to Management

    Turnover in management is high and employee support and not high.
