Overall, Laureate provides their employees with the potential to learn and grow in various skill sets. Although, it can be a high volume environment, employees benefit from the gains of hands on work and team members with high levels of expertise.

you are expected to work in the same position and same salary even 10 years from the day you join. please get a life! you are not stated about the work expectation but it is designed so that you get to work 24x7
Loved every second of employment at Laureate Education. As an Intern I worked on multiple accounting projects including bank reconciliations,and a fixed asset project. It was all very doable and I would recommend the internship to anyone who is just starting out intermediate accounting.
Mangagement sucks! Managers do not support the employee's desire to learn and grow. They do not give enough training and then blame the person for not understanding because of that. The people are disrespectful.
I learned a lot.
I had to learn on my own because they are not supportive and did not give enough training.
Good core values on paper. Terrible in practicing them.

If you want to have a life outside of the office, stay away. This company is all about the bottom line at the expense of their tools and their employees. The systems they use are archaic and they expect continued improvement from perpetually degrading systems.Which leads to 70 hour work weeks and minimal gains.
This organization is full of brilliant people with wonderful ideas but they don't have nearly enough functional expertise. They want to reinvent the wheel using squarish stones.
everyone is a manager and no one knows how to work anything
Enrollment Advisor (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – February 21, 2015
A typical day at work, was to pull any updated information for teachers who called in to re-certify their teaching certification. Answer phones with cheerfulness and clarity. Go into the teacher record file on the computer or make a new computer file and update and enroll and send out materials to the teachers.
I learned a lot about different personalities calling in, Great customer Service, great management and great co-workers all working together.
The hardest part of the job if any two people were absent you had a lot of phone calls to answer and not leave anyone on hold for over a certain period of time. It was a small office of about 8 people within a larger organization with other departments.
Most enjoyable were the supervisors .
celebration of differnt holidays and events we held at the office. great salaty and benefits.
my department had aout 4 different superviors within 5 years.
Regional Development Manager (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – September 27, 2014
Great company with many divisions and regional offices. If you are remote employee it is more difficult to find opportunity's word in script. However few are located at a physical location, opportunity's are always available and they like to promote from within. It is a large organization and with a little networking the possibilities are endless. Walden learning experience was mediocre.
Enrollment Advisor and Mentor (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – August 9, 2013
I learned that being myself will take me a long way. The leadership team helped developed ways for employees to grow and cared about our well-being. The most enjoyable part was changing people's lives through education and being the project coordinator for the Ronald McDonald House Charity. The hardest part was saying good-bye.
