    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.

    I worked at Everest Institute full-time

    Pros

    higher than average pay, and the opportunity to help people who really need it.

    Cons

    All they care about is numbers - get as many people through the door as possible, even if they aren't qualified. Place as many people in jobs as possible, even if they aren't a good fit. Too much time spent on irrelevant trainings and tracking literally every second of your work day into the computer. Management's only purpose is to praise you when you make your daily numbers and to put you down when you don't. There is a reason all of their campuses are getting shut down, stay away!!

    Pros

    I was the director of career services and worked with an amazing leadership team, especially the campus president. While it was challenging to work with the corporate office, the campus president held us accountable and supported us at the same time. All the employees, from the receptionist, the admissions team, the instructors, to the directors were passionate about student success. Customer service and quality education were the driving force at my campus. Benefits, at that time were amazing!

    Cons

    Corporate policies changed quickly, at times and immediate implementation of these policies was difficult. Change is expected, but this was consistently abrupt and disruptive to the staff functionality and, therefore, the students. Because the company was publicly traded, goals were not always realistic. Goals were, instead, based on making sure the stockholders were profiting. Since I've left, the corporation has been sold to a nonprofit company and I imagine the goals are more student driven.

    Advice to Management

    The corporation was sold to a nonprofit, so I have nothing to say about this level of management. As far as campus level management is concerned, continue what you're doing.
