Financial Planner
Senior Financial Planner (Former Employee), Denver, ColoradoFebruary 12, 2015
As a Financial Planner I would sit with potential students and interview them about their educational goals and financial needs to make achieving their educational goals a reality. We would complete 1 or 2 FAFSA applications depending on the enrollment period in which a student was applying and package them out for said academic years. Co-workers were great and my Director was phenomenal! Unfortunately the private sector of education has been up against some challenges and like other schools they were forced to downsize while enrollments were sinking. I was the last person in and first person out when the layoffs came. I appreciated my time at CollegeAmerica and gained quite a bit of experience that I am utterly grateful for.

not a good place to work
Medical Tutor (Former Employee), phoenix, azJuly 17, 2014
Cons: no breaks, don't get to eat, constantly doing things other people don't want to do.
I personally would not go back to work for this company. They only pay twice a month and only give you 20 hours a week. It is not enough to pay bills and then they give you a bogus excuse for why they fired you and then tell you to lie to people and say you quit.

flexible and lenient workplace limited opportunity for growth
CFA Officer (Former Employee), Denver, COJune 30, 2014
Pros: flexibility of hours
Cons: limited opportunity to grow with position or transfer to a different positon
Days are fairly consistent/monotonous. Management is inconsistent between departments and is not always professional. Opportunities including raises, travel and promotions seem to be awarded without consistency and not necessarily based on performance or contribution; but appear to be based on favoritism of management.

High energy, dynamic atmosphere with dedicated educators
Receptionist (Current Employee), Denver, COJune 17, 2014
Pros: friendly and caring staff, bonding and involvement with students, cross training
Cons: inflexible schedule, high stress, constant interruptions, constant policy changes
I learned the value of time management and a high level of adaptability. It is a face paced school with constantly rotating students and a variety of people from recent high school grads to retirees walking through the door. The management is great and genuinely cares about the students and employees. My coworkers kept me entertained and motivated. It is difficult, though not impossible to move up in the company, but it does take years of dedication and quite a lot of corporate involvement.

Student (Current Employee), Cheyenne, WYMay 3, 2013
While I am a current student, I must say "Good job" on replacing previous Dean and Director. However, there are some issues with the IT personnel. This person is uncooperative when computer problems are brought up. I have a loaner that had to replace my own when the charging prong broke, and I explained that I was unhappy with the loaner from the first day I received it. IT said I could not replace the loaner, despite problems with it. After I complained and was promised a new computer, now IT says I must keep the current one I have, the one I have had problems with, and continue to have.
