    I worked at Premier Education full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This past year I have found nothing to be a pro for this company other than some staff that truly wants to make a change.

    Cons

    A broken culture which refuses to change. Employees are not set up for success there is barely any training given to a new employee. The leaders who wanted to make positive changes are gone and all that is left are those who chose to lead through fear. NO THANK YOU. If you are a candidate for a job don't do it you will have regrets.

    Advice to Management

    Respect works both ways, stop undermining your staff and stop putting people in Regional positions who couldn't lead themselves out of a paper bag let alone get an entire region to follow them. Make better choices.

    I worked at Premier Education full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I had a great group of dedicated co-workers.

    The day I left.

    Cons

    Just about everything the CEO and COO touched.

    Too many shady, unethical and possibly illegal actions to get enrollments, placements and misrepresentation of statistics.

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach. You are responsible for the failures of the company. You are the reason it is going under. You are clueless, self centered, egotistical douches.

    Unreasonable expectations and goals are not motivators, they are tools for failure. Learn the positions you critique before becoming self appointed experts and passing judgement.

    I worked at Premier Education full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The work was easy. Getting people to pay was easy. Getting a bonus is easy. It’s easy money if you want to stay to yourself and not build relationships with anyone.

    Cons

    It was like high school. If you weren’t a cool kid in the cool group you got shut out. Everyone hanging out in the bosses office. Everyone sitting together at lunch. No one asking you to be a part of anything and even when you try they shut you out. I couldn’t wait to get out. It made me depressed and sic just to wake up in the morning.

    Advice to Management

    Get new management. Someone who is older then 12

    I worked at Premier Education full-time

    Pros

    The only pro is being abke to laugh daily at all the idiots that call themselves the " executive committee team".

    Cons

    Everything! From low pay to expensive benefits to working in an unsafe, unhealthy work environment. You are harrassed on a daily basis by the executives. You live in constant fear that you will lose your job or better yet, they will ruin your life should you decide to leave on your own. They have shady enrollments and employees that carry high titles but do not have the educational background to be in those positions.

    Advice to Management

    Fire yourself because you suck. You suck real bad.

    Pros

    The students are the most amazing people to work with. they are only looking for a chance in their dream career.

    Cons

    The Salter School in SE Mass. The management is awful. They lead through dictatorship and belittling. They have no desire to set proper KPI'S. they will beat you up daily to exceed expectations. They have the most toxic business environment I have ever encountered. The admissions will enroll people with criminal records and then indicate they can get them a job! They treat the students like lower class people coming from poverty lifestyles. It is all about the money. They have no business sense at all and will eventually go out of business.

    Advice to Management

    Improve your concept of team! Be sure the right players are in the right roles. Don't lead through dictatorship and intimidation. Set the right standards and stick to them. Improve your equipment for student use.
