    Pros

    Great co-workers but that's about it

    Cons

    The school and everything about it is a scam! Horrible management! They literally tell you NOT to tell students the real truth about how terrible the program and the school is. You work pretty much every weekend even though they tell you that you will only have to once a month. STAY AWAY!

    I cant say anything because the school has closed permanently and is no longer in existence. Sad because there were a lot of great people that worked there

    I worked at Westwood College part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There are some great instructors there that teaches, and have 20+ years in the industry in which they teach. They are very professional as well.

    Cons

    There are other employers who are not instructors that did not set examples concerning honest and ethical behaviors, they stole from the company thinking that they would never get caught. There was another issue as well, the school was not state accredited which is one reason why they are being sued and couple with the employee's steeling, Westwood College went under and had no choice but to close its' doors for good here in Atlanta, GA.
