    I worked at Remington College full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    They hire from within and you get a 5000.00 pay increase annually. The Dallas campus has a great location for walk in students.

    Cons

    Management lacks professionalism. The health insurance is expansive with high deductibles and there's a lot of turnovers due to poor management.

    Advice to Management

    They definitely promote within!

    I worked at Remington College full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Most employees are great to work with.

    Cons

    There are no regular raises. The only way to earn more money is to get a promotion and that does not always equal more pay. Every year the cost of health insurance increases. Employees are considered expendable. Company is now in a rocky financial position so not a good place to work. There has been a great deal of down sizing.

    Advice to Management

    Learn the industry that you are working in and treat employees better. Start to give raises!

    Pros

    Good pay, is the only good thing I can say about it.

    Cons

    Management is the worst I have ever seen at any company. If they would get management that actually knew how to manage it would be a better place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to manage and treat people

    I worked at Remington College part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Laid back atmosphere. Well, I'm suppose to write at least twenty words here in the pro section, but I am hard pressed to do that. There just weren't too many pros.

    Cons

    Had to teach their curriculum, which students didn't read most of the time, and was expected to have a high success rate.
    Administration tried to back me up, but in the long run their paycheck depended on me passing students.

    Advice to Management

    Back your instructors! Students will not do what they are required to do unless you give them no other option.

    I worked at Remington College full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There are lots of things to get involved in and very little middle management. As long as your manager supports you it is very easy to move up the ranks once you prove yourself.

    Cons

    No communication about state of the company.

    Advice to Management

    You can't undo years of mismanagement. Be honest with your employees about what is going on.

    Great customer service is required. Must be a people person. Great hours and benefits.

    No one worked there more than two years before being fired!

    Cultivate a strong group and keep them. Reward them for a job well done with positive encouragement.

    I loved the interaction with the students and faculty. I love the opportunity to share my knowledge of various subjects when the creating bulletin board for the medical and business areas.

    I wish I was able to work fulltime and better hours. Sometimes it was hard to work split shifts.

    People at Byrant and Stratton are nice people to work with.
