    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Pleasant work environment, good comradery amongst staff, retirement options.

    Cons

    Higher ups were not open to innovative ideas to improve curriculum. Complaints were generally dismissed or mocked. The management changed after I left, so hopefully this has improved. There were students that did not seem qualified for the program. It appeared their acceptance criteria was anyone who could pay the tuition.

    Advice to Management

    Don't take on students you know will not be able to finish the program or pay back their student loan. Had a few students who had special needs and learning disabilities, kept failing classes and there was no intervention.
