    Pros

    90% good people, good benefits until the last year. My Favorite Muffins on Fridays! Garage parking.

    Cons

    For profit school played all the tricks to get students and saddle them with loans that many couldn't pay back. A minority, but some managers were jerks. Never made a profit and was kept afloat as long as it was by Glenn Jones' millions. Building had some bad leaks, good thing it was Colorado and not someplace where it really rains!

    Advice to Management

    Hope you found a job!

    Pros

    Great place to work at and great people to work with. They were innovative and always working towards technology improvements.

    Cons

    Registration and enrollment declined continuously over the years which meant not a lot of budget for more staffing or promotion opportunities.

    Pros

    Unfortunately Mr. Jones turned it over to the wrong people. What they sold in the interview seemed like a great vision and idea.

    Cons

    Serious conflict of interest of the private shareholders of the parent company and also being elected officials in the Panorama Metroplitan Special District. Launched big plans to go public or sell and determined predatory lending was the answer. Engaged far too many at lower levels to achieve this and the actions to cover it up caught up to them.

    Advice to Management

    Seriously? Too bad you all got hung up and sidetracked based on promises of a large payout. It eventually was discovered.

    Work from home, good support from administration, courses updated regularly, good tech support

    "The employees are mostly good to work around, but you'd better be ready to work 50 hours each and every week to stay!"

    Pros

    Mr. Jones was a visionary and all was good when he was around. We got some nice perks and the
    holidays party was always great!

    Cons

    Mr. Jones was sharp, but once he got ill, things went downhill. The kids who took over were totally incompetent.

    Advice to Management

    This business now is owned by another school. The stakeholders decided to take the money and run. The wrong people were in charge.
