    I worked at Porter & Chester Institute for more than 8 years

    Pros

    If you care about helping students succeed and can ignore management it is a great place to be.

    Cons

    Everything else: -Long hours without thanks -Low pay with no reviews -A CEO who doesn't have a clue about education -Management imported from all of the schools that failed -No matching on 401K -Terrible health plan -Training and professional development a low priority -No opportunity for advancement

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employees or you will soon be without them. Your instructors can make much more money in their respective trades.

    I have been working at Porter & Chester Institute full-time

    Pros

    Porter and Chester is highly respected in the CT and MA markets. We provide highly skilled training to our students in all of the programs that we offer. It is a privilege to be part of their success everyday. Porter and Chester has afforded me opportunities in my professional growth, that I feel I would not have learned or been exposed to at another company or school. They truly care about their employees.

    Cons

    I cannot think of any cons at this time.

    Advice to Management

    Management is doing a great job, aligning our schools and our company for growth in the future. They make decision based on what is best for our continued success.
