    Advice to Management

    Let your reps do their job instead of have 3-4 stand ups per day. That is time that can be spent on the phone getting persective students. You can come to the reps for updates on their daily activty. Also, loging the same inforamtion into several diffrent spreadsheets and systems is time consuming, also more time that can be spend prospecting potential students.

    Pros

    You really get to be a part of something special in helping people achieve in most cases what they believed to be impossible.

    Cons

    Micro management at highest level. You have to wonder what's wrong when 99% of the executive staff resigns

    Advice to Management

    Learn to be objective, fair, open and honest....be the exact thing that you preach but don't practice

    Pros

    Fortis College is super laid back. It's family friendly. Anytime I've had a family emergency or needed time off, it's been granted without any hassle. Benefits are also phenomenal.

    Cons

    So far, I haven't really encountered any cons. Naturally, is like to make more money and the company right now is not implementing yearly raises but other than that, I'm content.

    Advice to Management

    I appreciate all they do. They always check in with me to see how I'm doing.
