    Pros

    There are some great employees here and the programs have fantastic potential as well.

    Cons

    There has not been enough investment back into the campuses which causes frustration and dissatisfaction. Students are paying a lot of money to attend here but do not see how that investment is directly contributing to their experience. Biggest con is the mismanagement over the years that has led to the recent closing of 3/4 of the campuses across the country. It is a shame.

    Pros

    None- all schools are closing, not worth it.

    Cons

    For profit, predatory school, does not have the best interest in the students, only cares about money. DCEH is worst than EDMC, before interviewing with this awful company look what they are up to at www.thelayoff.com Bad management, lots of drama and favoritism between departments, directors have no managerial and interpersonal skills, very toxic environment to work in.

    Advice to Management

    None- there is no hope for them- even if you complain to HR, nothing changes.
