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.
