    I worked at Porter & Chester Institute full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Working with students to help them achieve their dreams. Management is so disconnected that they never bother to check in on you to make sure you are actually doing your job.

    Cons

    Since money is their bottom line they do not invest back into the company. Continously cutting back on employee benefits and wages. Not keeping up with computers and lab equipment. Senior management that is out of touch. Working here is like living in the wild west, people are constantly quitting or being let go for no apparent reason.

    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.

    I have been working at Porter & Chester Institute full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good people doing their best to educate their students. Helping students achieve their goals and get good paying jobs.

    Cons

    Owned by a hedge fund. CEO is a CPA not an educator. His number one goal is to maximize profits and give minimum to students and staff. They don't give any raises and keep cutting staff. Then the work is given to the people that are left. No department budgets and very difficult to get needed supplies. Extremely low moral.
