    I worked at Dream Careers for more than 10 years

    Pros

    If you want to work with people that have heart, this is the place to be. You're not just working next to a random colleague. You are working with passionate people that care about what they do and the difference they are making on people's lives. These are good people

    Cons

    Through the last few years, Dream Careers has gotten lost a bit. The culture that used to be what it was known for has changed and has unfortunately affected the core product of the programs. It's now more of the bottom line and less about making a difference a people's lives. Don't get me wrong, that's still there. but $$ is put in front of the care of people, clients and employees alike.

    Advice to Management

    Management are good people. They are making tough calls based on business. Go back to the core of what made it special, taking care of each other. The rest will follow.

    I worked at Dream Careers full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Nice making good connections with wonderful companies and universities. Fantastic working with the students and making a huge difference in these students lives. Extremely satisfying and worth every second of the work that leads up to the students arriving to program. Had a blast traveling to numerous universities across the country.

    Cons

    Somehow there's also turned into a sales role which they have employees for. No room for growth. Lots of closed meetings, gossip,and office politics. Lots of unanswered emails and late payments for stipends and misleading job summarys and false advertising for old internships on the website which in turn gives the students unrealistic expectations. In the summers you were are working almost 24 hours a day and not... getting paid overtime, challenging being expected to live in the dorms as a grown adult with your own life being but on hold and still having to pay your rent. Challenging if you have children. A small group of the older employees do not like new blood with new ideas. Very hostile. Admire what the companies stands for but poor company morale.

    Advice to Management

    Remember why you started this company and the original ideas. Start listening to the market and what it holds and listen to every employee. Not just the favorites. Get back to basics and add in new growth
