    I worked at Lincoln Tech full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent salary, good staff for the most part

    Cons

    Corporate numbers crunchers who don't understand the reality of today's demographic

    Advice to Management

    Let your Campus DOA and real Reps do their job and stop farming out leads to telemarketing firms out of state. Stop brining in new DOA's or Campus Presidents and work on the branding of the product. Get people in Education who care as much as the Admissions team.
