    Pros

    Great co-workers, first campus director was amazing, genuine care and motivation for student success.

    Unethical, circus show progressed negatively with the succeeding director, ultimately closing, abruptly leaving employees shocked and jobless. Students were left with debt , no proof of completed education and no plan for future completion.

    I worked at Wright Career College (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Nice facility and overall nice people to work with on campus. Select Campus Staff/Faculty wanted the best for students.

    Cons

    Preyed on people who could not get accepted to college anywhere else by commercials that promised "free" laptops, but really the fee was charged in their tuition. Some students could not read, so faculty were told to essentially dumb down the curriculum. Students would fight and act like they were in high school. Unqualified individuals employed as "Deans". Perpetual cycle of poverty, making students take out high student loans yet giving them degrees that they could not get employed with. Thus, if they cannot find employment, they cannot pay back their loans, ending in default.

    Advice to Management

    School is now closed due to being under federal investigation thanks to the greed at the top. Archaic styles of leadership, forcing women on Admissions team to wear skirts and heels whenever the CEO came on campus.

    I worked at Wright Career College full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I feel as though all of the faculty and staff did care about the students. I enjoyed working there and I enjoyed the students that attended Wright.

    Cons

    I don't think it should have been a requirement for students to take online classes in every single program offered. Some people do not have internet access at home, which in turn made the student unsuccessful.

    Advice to Management

    The only advice I would say is that the students should not have ever been required to take the online classes. I feel like the school lost a lot of enrollments because of this.

    Pros

    overtime, great coworkers, and great students. Helping the students was a very rewarding feeling.

    Cons

    Corporate, Corporate seemed to not really care about their employees, students, and only cared about the money. In the end that seems to be what was the destruction of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Next time you open a business care more about your employees, and making a real difference rather than getting so swept up in the money.
