A great place to have freedom and pursue other (Education, trade, skill) avenues while having a good paying with consistent hours plus overtime .
Enrollment Sales Consultant (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – July 20, 2016
Responsible for educating and giving consultative support for qualified students in achieving their Professional and Academic goal by enrolling in one of the Higher Education programs. Constant communication & cooperation with other departments such as: IT, Admissions, Academic Advising, Student Affairs, SST, Operations, Billing, Financial Aid, and other Colleges/Universities. Consistently monitored and was judged on enrollment sales, client retention, effective communication, completed applications, student experience, and goals obtained.
I learned much more regarding the education system and dealing with people from all different backgrounds and styles of life. I also learned to be more effective & deliberate in Account Management & Sales.
Management was good at overcoming objections.
My co-workers were probably the most educated people I have ever worked with so I needed to be sharp, quick, unintimidated, and flexible in learning.
The most difficult or hardest thing was learning how to deal with unprofessionalism in the work place and the consistent organizational restructuring.
The most enjoyable aspect was threefold:
1. Benefits were absolutely phenomenal
2. I enjoy people and meeting so many various types of people was great! Along with learning from there experiences helped me to lear how to relate better with completely different people.
3. I like retaining the customer! I receive satisfaction upon building rapport with clients and obtaining there motivation to further gravitate to closing the sale ( I am very competitive).
Coordinator (Current Employee) – Baltimore, MD – July 8, 2016
Very High Volume, multitasking, busy and fun environment. Staying busy is very easy and there is always something to take on. It is common to learn by error, and often the only way, as it is so fast paced.
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.
IT Analyst (Current Employee) – Baltimore, MD – January 20, 2016
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.
Specialist (Current Employee) – Baltimore, MD – March 21, 2015
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.
