Company Culture

After seven years of working there, fairness and trust were things that I never saw take place.

Support from management

Management typically had little to no college education & perpetuated a system or keeping qualified fully educated individuals from getting promotions.

Teamwork

Teamwork was preached but never practiced. Management constantly reminded of that they would throw us under the bus any time they felt their own job was in danger.

Freedom to work independently

Despite job descriptions, your work hours and work duties were dictated strictly based on the revenue the college was making at the time.

Internal Communication

Honest communication was not very common. When management ask for feedback they would take it and use it against us.

Gender Equality

Women and men both have equal opportunities for promotions and positions at the company.

Attitude towards older colleagues

I was never aware of any type of age discrimination in the admissions department

Career Development

Career development was not a thing at Vatterott college, the only people who got promoted where the people who were friends with the right higher ups.

Overall compensation for your work

Starting salaries were great compared to many other employers. However Ray is work performance based. If performance was great during the time for a raise, and raises were purposely delayed until there was a drop in admissions performance. This was a very specific cost-cutting tactic that the company used to cut corners.

Office / Work Environment

The building facilities were adequate with the exception of the computers. The computers were at least 10 years old or older in the admissions dept.

Environmental Friendliness

N/A

Work-Life Balance

There was no work life balance. If the right amount of revenue was not generated by enrollment numbers. We were told that we could not take vacations and we couldn't find babysitters in 24 hour notice we could lose our jobs.

Company Image

Most employees expressed concern about the quality of education and were not even willing to send their own children to Vatterott college.

Job Security

Job security does not exist in any proprietary College in the admissions department. Job security was based solely on the admissions department's ability to enroll enough students each month to meet the quota. Vatterott College was no exception.

Handicapped Accessibility

Those with disabilities were treated fairly.

Workplace Safety

No safety issues.

Inclusive / Diverse

It was not much diversity at the Berkeley campus. However I do not feel that there was any racial discrimination taking place

Suggestions for improvement

  • Replace the CEO with someone who doesn't only care about profits. Find a CEO that actually cares about the work ethic, working conditions and qualifications of his or her employees.

What I dislike about the company

The culture of hiring friends whether they have an education or not & keeping qualified employees away from promotions because they are not friends with the right people. Whenever a new management position became available they would select the person to fill that position first & then publicly advertise the position to the public and to the employees as if anyone else really had a chance to get that position that was already filled.
