Pros

Some of the employees are nice caring individuals

Cons

Management has no clue on how to manage in the current market environment. They are living off of past success and the boom in for-profit education. Now that the industry is under scrutiny and enrollments are down there is no strategy to recover and grow.

Advice to Management

Manage your people better than you do your expenses. The bottom line is cost. You are not competitively priced and community and state schools will start to bury you.

    Pros

    Educational institution which is accredited and puts into writing that they seek to help their staff and students.

    Cons

    Does not actually live up to the promises made to staff and students due to the nature of the company to drive profits.

    Advice to Management

    Make a choice between profits or education because you can't have both. Efficiency leads to profits, but has a cost to end users and in an educational setting, profits must come after education is ensured. Shareholders thus, must believe stronger in the long-term power of education than of the importance of short-term profits.
