Pros: ample parking
Cons: low pay, poor management, disorganized infrastructure at all levels
Working here was an awful experience. Management has no clue what they're doing. A lot of fictitious titles are going around too. When in all reality the core of the school relies on the admissions department.
For example, you have a campus president walking around the campus when all they do is walk around giving high fives literally. For what? I have no clue, maybe because they found out Dunkin' Donuts got a new shipment in. (Dunkin' Donuts is located conveniently across the parking lot from the Gurnee,IL campus)
They let anyone into the school felons, drug addicts, and illiterate people who don't even have the capacity to understand the coursework. The sad part is the school doesn't have the resources in order to aid individuals with their learning disabilities. Anyone can be an instructor at this school, janitors end up becoming campus presidents and students becoming principles within months. Sadly, the instructors constantly bad mouth the student body, and once informed me, "Most students here are only testing at a sixth grade level in all areas."
It's a very unfortunate situation for anyone dealing with that school,whether staff or students. The degrees they provide for the students serve no purpose, and will in the long run cost them more debt then what they'll be earning. I'm glad I put my moral conscious before the low pay they were giving me. STAY AWAY FROM THIS COMPANY, RUN FAR FAR AWAY!!
As a former employee, and a local native from the targeted demographic (Waukegan, North Chicago, Libertyville, Gurnee, Zion, Mundelein, Lake Bluff, Round Lake, Lake Villa) the – more... school serviced; I feel it is my duty to make individuals in the area aware of the scam the school is running. Most importantly, I wont stop till they either change their polices or get shut down.
If you're considering working, at or attending this school ask the following questions to yourself . Do I take my career seriously? Will I want to find other opportunities after attending, or working for Computer Systems Institute? If you answered yes to these questions than I would consider looking elsewhere, because working or attending here can seriously tarnish your image. The place is a joke! – less
