    Pros

    Great people, awesome to support students achieve their goals and provide access to a college education for students regardless of their financial status.

    Decisions in key strategic areas were not made in order to keep the doors open. It is unfortunate so many students are now deprived of access to a great education.

    Advice to Management

    Unfortunately the organization is now closed, so any advice to management does not matter at this point. Sad to see the end for employees and students

    Pros

    Some of the best co-workers I've ever had. Dedicated, hard workers, unfortunately not many are left.

    Cons

    It's a sinking ship, and will be running on skeleton staff until they close. They have laid off so many, the ones left are carrying a massive burden.

    Advice to Management

    No advice, you've already ruined the company.
