    I worked at Sanford Brown College part-time (More than 3 years)

    Overall it was a great experience. I was an adjunct IT Instructor at the Seattle area location. The students were great and I had a blast teaching them. Also the management and co-workers at that location were great, friendly and supportive.

    Unfortunately they are doing a teach-out and closing the campus.

    I worked at Sanford Brown College full-time

    Pros

    Exceptional management staff at the campus level.

    Cons

    Worthless senior management staff at the corporate level. A fact confirmed in the closing of all Sanford-Brown schools!

    Advice to Management

    Career Education Corporation, as with many of the proprietary (for-profit) schools are woefully behind in their program offerings, not to mention their antiquated practices when it comes to admissions and overall campus experience. It seems "The time's they are a changing" just not in the private for-profit education sector...
