    I have been working at Fremont College full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great management team. I really like how open everyone is to ideas and willing to pitch in to help each other when needed. Very relaxed atmosphere and way too many sweets for someone like me that is on a diet.

    Cons

    Too many sweets around the office. It's very tempting.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. Thank you for all the support.

    I worked at Fremont College full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Some diversity in office, which is positive.

    Cons

    Hugely disrespectful after interview process even after they praised my work. Did not callback after repeated attempts to find out status of position. I was also promised a stippen after some work I did - Small, but still a promise. Did not come through with that either. That tells you something about a company and owner.

    The students are amazing and really want to make it in life.

    Management tends to micromanage their staff. Back down and let leaders be leaders.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your staff and students.

    I have been working at Fremont College full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great colleagues to work with, extremely sophisticated and savvy, collaborative, and very nice people. I see it like a bunch of friends with similar likes yet uniquely different in their own way, working together to achieve an overall purpose. Its refreshing and stretching at the same time.

    Student affairs department does an amazing job interacting with the students, providing them with hope to succeed and reminding them that they can do a great job if they continue to work hard.

    Collaborative culture of care. CEO's vision drives the ship and anchors every effort - focused on offering students a new reality and empowering people through education and real opportunities.

    Cons

    So far so good. Hours can be wonky at times and traffic driving to LA is never the best but what can you do in LA? I couldn't find a helicopter for sale on Craigslist

    Advice to Management

    Continual encouragement of the staff, allowing them to grow and do what they do best, and integrating the student experience along with their goals as one of the forefront core values

    I worked at Fremont College full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very accessible management team who are open to new ideas. Very dedicated and hardworking staff. Although my position didn't work directly with students, from what I could tell, staff and faculty really seemed to care about each and everyone.

    Cons

    These weren't cons for me but potential new hires should be aware that this is a very fast paced environment. Things change quickly. If you do not like frequent change (for the better!) than maybe Fremont College is not for you.

    Advice to Management

    Thanks for the opportunity!

    I have been working at Fremont College full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    As described by even the negative comments, we do have great people working here and many are happy to come to work, enjoy company outings, and participate in our monthly forums. We make a big difference in our students' lives and the College is very mission-centered.

    Cons

    I think some people are more emotional than others and the company culture doesn't fit well with those who gossip and be negative.

    It would be nice to have more company outings and get-togethers after work. It's a great way to get to know your co-workers.

    Pros

    The best part about working at Fremont College is the STUDENTS! Fremont College is a student-centered environment. Helping our students and making them feel 100% satisfied about being a part of the Fremont family is what I like most about my job. I truly enjoy fulfilling the needs of the students and making a difference in their lives, and I feel proud to work at Fremont College when I see students' lives change for the better.

    Cons

    Cross training in related departments might help everyone perform their duties better. Learning what others do is always interesting and helps everyone work better together.
