Good place to work however a bit confused
SSC Finance Controller (Former Employee) –  Brazil, INDecember 19, 2016
Good place to work, so many challenge and very dinamic environment. Excellent team and relation between the mgmt level to the team work. The leadership is conducted in a horizontal manner and the company is very democratic in terms of process. There is no difference between people although there is a lack of transparence when the subject is career growth. The headquarter requires the perfect scenario in all business instances mainly because the company is going to IPO however there is also a lack of corporate culture which jeopardize the entire organization.
Pros
Excellent policy of compensation and benefits
Cons
Changing priority all the times and low business leadership culture

Manager Academic Advising (Former Employee) –  Amsterdam, NYNovember 15, 2016
Good work life balance and blended working options.
Fabulous international colleagues and collaborative working environment.
The organization is currently in flux and reacting quickly to industry and political changes, this has lead to uncertainty and conflict as the business priorities switch between hitting targets and providing the bext experience for our students.
Pros
Discount on further studies are available.
Cons
Ever changing priorities and leadership team means there is confusion.

Not too bad but not fun or inspiring.
Technical Support (contractor) (Current Employee) –  Baltimore, MDSeptember 19, 2016
Working at the help desk here is certainly not for everyone. Laureate has about 500 applications to accommodate all of the schools on their network. Combine that with a strict budget and a general lack of understanding when it comes to computers and you're in for some interesting times.

Several of the systems have trouble communicating with one another creating hiccups for students and teachers alike. No only that but certain software that have become vital to daily operations are very old and have conflicts, frequent crashes, and other issues that make things tougher for techs and end-users.

The people are nice and the compensation is good but but the stress is pretty high and consistent.And there's always a system that you haven't heard of and weren't trained on, this is true even for veterans due to the constant shifts and alterations along with the sheer depth of the Laureate Network.
Pros
Good pay, professional co-workers
Cons
Cubicle environment, frequent/random calls, frequent emails, outdated hard and software

Fast-paced, corporate environment
Director (Former Employee) –  Baltimore, MDAugust 10, 2016
Laureate was a pretty good place to work. Most executives believe in the new mission statement "We are here for good".

The international graduate degrees definitely filled a void in international education, specifically in more impoverished countries like those found in Africa, the Middle East and South America.

The learning curve is somewhat steep, as Laureate's network is quite large and expanding, but the work done is very rewarding.

There have been many company reorgs over the years, and more recently large layoffs so job security is tenuous at best.

Still overall a good place to work.

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, CAJuly 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).

High Volume company
Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Baltimore, MDJuly 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.

Accounts Receivable Coordinator-Bursar (Current Employee) –  Columbia, MDFebruary 11, 2016
Laureate is a great company, but its not somewhere that one can actually grow and move forward in their career. If you only want to pay bills that is fine but after a while the same ol same ol gets to you.
