    I worked at Laureate Education full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people I worked with were generally great people. I really liked most of my colleagues and I built lasting friendships from my time there. Salary and benefits are also competitive and fair.

    Cons

    Toxic middle and senior management, questionable HR practices in handling internal disputes, "boys club" mentality, strong arming employees to produce unreasonable expectations, struggling to meet departmental goals.

    Advice to Management

    There's a lot of toxicity in middle to senior management that I don't think upper management (VPs and beyond) understand. HR needs to be a better job at identifying and correcting these toxic managers and promoting and rewards some of the great managers I worked with.
