    Pros

    Loved working with interested students who wanted to earn a degree and help them learn more about the field and opportunities after graduation.

    Cons

    Felt like we had to call people who accidently clicked too many times. Some of our target market weren't going to be able to do the job after they completed their education for various reasons.

    My experience with management was good while I was there. Maybe a little bit more community outreach.

    I have been working at Vatterott Education Centers, Inc. full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The pay is pretty decent

    Cons

    It used to be a great place to work until pam bell former ceo left! I loved working for pam-she expected u to do your job. You also knew where you and the company stood. Under this 'new management' everything is top secret. Campus directors and Directors as a whoke does ABSOLUTELY no work. They bark orders all day. The environment sucks...there is favoritism and a hint of racism now. Everyone that is a good worker has either quit, looking for employment elsewhere or has just stopped caring. No longer any opportunities for growth unless you're buddies with the new ceo. I hate it and am avidly looking. Ive been employed here for 10 years now and has seen the decline with everything. Not to mention the school is broke. Cant order basic supplies that students need for their programs, no security graduation has been cut, lay off of employees no raises oh and the rugs has been repossessed

    Advice to Management

    Corp:Be open and honest with employee
    Management hold yourselves accountable and practice what you preach.

    I worked at Vatterott Education Centers, Inc. full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    • Paycheck every two weeks.

    Cons

    • Management could care less about it students and employees

    • Management pits instructors against one another

    • Management created an abusive and toxic workplace environment

    • Management has lack of experience

    • Mandatory meetings/events on your days off with no compensation

    • Management forces instructors to work from home (with out compensation)

    • Management forces instructors to take on multiple management responsibilities (with out compensation) such as: course development, retentions, admissions, registry and any other areas to help off set the work load. This is used as a form of control and those that take on more responsibilities are rewarded with more class, those that cant are "punished" by given less classes to teach.

    Advice to Management

    Take your business more serious and stop stealing money from your students. You are doing a disservice to the community you serve. (Most of management is not from this community so that might me the problem in the first place.)

    Pros

    Great teachers and staff on campuses and John Vatterott did great things. Please note that Pam Bell is not the CEO now. She was great. It is now Rene Crosswhite. A brutal accountant.

    Cons

    Current administration. Google: "Campus President fired for helping homeless student"

    Practice what you pretend to preach.
