    I worked at WyoTech full-time

    Pros

    Wonderful coworkers and some great students.

    Cons

    As the years passed, the dollar sign prevailed. School became less about training and producing qualified technicians and more about keeping students around that obviously were not "graduate" quality. How can students that repeatedly miss 50% of module be allowed to move on? Exactly.

    Advice to Management

    Would they listen? Nope

    I worked at WyoTech full-time

    Pros

    Worked with great management in the Career Services Department. There was flexibility and opinions and ideas were greatly embraces. Was like a family environment.

    Cons

    Upper management was not always honest. Procedures were constantly being changed. Didn't receive much in the way of raises for surpassing set goals.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees like adults and with with mutual respect and honesty. listen to ideas and opinions which would go a long way in regards to work productivity.

    I worked at WyoTech full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Tight knit team. Pleasant to work with those within the department. No micromanaging from within the department.

    Cons

    Upper management has only one goal- enrollments of under qualified students. The admissions teams have no care or concerns for the time of those in finance.

    Advice to Management

    Focus your attention on revamping the admissions team and leave the successful departments enough breathing room to do their jobs.

    I have been working at WyoTech (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The school itself is an awesome product, I have witnessed many students attend and are majorly successful. Many are doing what they love to do.

    Cons

    Upper management does not know how to effectively run a school. Zenith runs a online and location campus system, and they run a technical school. Zenith attempts to run both Everest and WyoTech the same way. They are apples and oranges. Everest is a location campus, where WyoTech students have to move across the country to get the specialized training.

    Advice to Management

    Divide Zenith into two groups; Everest and WyoTech. Then put the right people in position to run each division the proper way. When you make a decision to change something, allow it enough time to see if it is going to work, before you change it again.

    I worked at WyoTech full-time

    Pros

    Good work environment, great management.

    Cons

    Hours were unnecessary to a point. Twice a week you would work late into the evening when there was no real reason. Some days there would be a lack of work.

    Advice to Management

    Find more ways to keep employees busy.

    I worked at WyoTech (More than a year)

    Pros

    Students were interesting, although some were very misguided.

    Cons

    Management was uneducated and fairly inexperienced.
    Students were often misguided by other people at WyoTech, and career services became the focus of their rage after graduation.

    I have been working at WyoTech (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Working together with fellow employees for a common goal, to get our students ready for a career. New ownership is a non-profit company that sees the potential market of technical trades being neglected by most traditional learning institutions. They are also actively training and deploying field reps regionally to locate potential students and are focusing the targeting on those that have a true desire and the ability to become successful in their chosen occupational field.

    Cons

    Most of the downsides that I have experienced are presently being corrected by the new parent company. I feel obligated to allow a bit more time to pass before making negative assertions.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to listen to the needs of the employees as well as that of the students to create a great environment for all concerned.
