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

    Pros

    Met some nice co-workers. Met some nice students and grads and was able to help them in a meaningful way.

    Cons

    Too many to list. The environment feels like a sales job with "stand-ups", people trying to take your job leads, management rewarding abhorrent behavior, nasty attitudes (mostly management), low wages, standards are forever changing...I can say all of this and I was the #1 job developer, lol. I tried to create a different environment b/c I'm not into all of the backbiting. In the end, I left. It just wasn't worth the stress. I know of other great people who left for the same reasons. If I could give negative stars, I would.

    Advice to Management

    Hmm. I was there 1 year, and within that time I had 5 managers, lol. First of all, the sales driven environment sucks and is totally unnecessary. You don't motivate people that way. It didn't motivate me and I still did well. Second, why don't promote managers from within--people who understand the job. For the life of me, I couldn't understand why they kept bringing in idiots who were clueless about what it takes to get grads and students placed. Third, you should pay a WHOLE lot more for what is asked. There are no bonuses or anything associated with this position. It makes no sense.

    Pros

    You truly get to help people improve their lives from time to time.

    Cons

    Sometimes feel like your ripping people off. Like you know they would be better off at a community college, but if you don't enroll, you're not performing.

    Advice to Management

    Do something to change the image of UEI. And when choosing management/Presidents/etc choose people who have worked in enrollment in the past. Not just someone with a degree.

    Pros

    Fill you are making a change in students lives

    Cons

    Low wages, sketchy practices, all that matters is student attendance not that they learn.

    Advice to Management

    Change your practices and try to teach the students something not just make sure they pass so you can cash a check. If you do this you wont be closing down and under so much scrutiny

    I have been working at UEI part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Complete curriculum done, little oversight and easy to work with. They do a lot to thank the instructors and so much so its over the top.

    Cons

    Responsible for student issues and we don't admit the students. The admissions of some students makes meeting obligations of the school difficult if not impossible.

    Advice to Management

    Worry less about what you can't control and don't punish anyone for what they can't control.

    Pros

    Money is ok and management will leave you alone if you are hitting budgets

    Cons

    Must be an aggressive sales person in order to really make it in this industry. This type of sale is not like any other sales positions

    Pros

    Working with disenfranchised students. Many of these students come from disadvantaged households and are first generation students. As instructors, we have the opportunity to make a difference.

    Cons

    If you don't have patience, persistence, and determination to teach, coach, and mentor students--- this is not the position for you.

    Advice to Management

    Overall, it was a great management team!

    Pros

    The school had a lot to offer its students, and a very impressive facility.

    Cons

    Leadership did not value its employees, and there was no job security for anyone. No matter how much we did to make our students enjoy their experience in our classroom.

    Advice to Management

    The educators are the backbone of any academic arena, administration much secure a future for their academic team in order to strengthen the schools program. Students take notice when instructors they have come to appreciate up and leave abruptly. Also, its not good when students know more about what's going on in the front office; because, good news travels very slow; but, bad news is worst than a wild fire.
