Admissions Representative Review
Admissions Representative (Former Employee), Austin, TXNovember 9, 2013
Pros: food - people
Cons: management - corporate
Want to work at a call center?? Le Cordon Bleu Austin has become just that. Corporate entities has sunken their claws into what was a great school and working enviornment. The school still has a great program and the BEST instructors but working in their admissions was not fun.

Management: They don't listen to their people nor do they care what you – more... have to say. This has made all their good people leave. Marching orders come down from 3000K miles away so just sit in your cube, make a 150 calls and the corporate hawks will rejoice as the student population dwindles. Direct management is nice and care. They just don't listen. Completely disfuctional hiring process and promotion criteria has put people in positions they don't deserve and it's left the school wondering where it's good people went.

Most enjoyable: The students. Beautiful campus. The instructors are phenominal. They care and they love what they do.

Admissions B
Admissions Dept. Admissions Representative Hybrid (Former Employee), Pasadena, CASeptember 24, 2013
Pros: helping people make decisions in life
Cons: poor management, unethical company
Being a part of education that is sustainable in the food industry and the amount of history Le Cordon Bleu carries with Julia Childs being a great mentor was the drive that kept me going. The management changed four times in four years including VP's as the morale was always low however I focused on the student population and maintained a high level – more... of quality and counseling services for the student. I believe the corporation has lost over 8 colleges and huge layoffs that continue today. – less

Culinary schools run by accountants not chefs
Chef Instructor (Former Employee), Boston, MAFebruary 19, 2013
Pros: co-workers
Cons: pay scale, bad decisions by corporate, lack of support for instructors
This company is a joke. Churn out the students even if they can't grasp basic culinary. Employees are treated like dirt ant there is ahuge turn over of instructors. The hiring is done by salary not quality or experience. the program is watered down and management shoots from the hip on all decisions.They seem to have the do as I say not as I do mentality. – more... Beware this company won't last long the best a job with LCB can be is a stepping stone to something better. – less

A Terrible Company
Instructor (Former Employee), Chicago, ILOctober 19, 2012
Pros: free food
Cons: everything
LCB and its parent company CEC have taken a major hit in enrollment for several reasons including an extremely high student loan default rate and a low quality of education. Working at LCB you cannot help but feel guilty at the knowledge that you are profiting at what is ostensibly a diploma factory. The majority of students you see will not "find an – more... exciting new career in the culinary field" but more likely continue on at whatever greasy spoon they slave at daily long after graduation. Add to this a complete lack of intercorporate or even intercampus communication, a general arrogance from the culinary instructors, a sort of schoolyard politics that pervades even the simplest interactions and what you're left with is a terrible work experience, one I hope you avoid. – less

Great work place with a good life/work balance.
Student Management & Student Housing Coordinator (Former Employee), Las Vegas, NVJuly 21, 2012
Pros: work & life balance and benefits
Cons: poor business ethics and management was discriminatory.
Overall the job position was great; getting to know the students was a thrill. Management practiced very poor ethics in business and seems to discriminate against African American's and gays. The company it's self manipulated the student loan system to except students they knew would never be able to pay their student loans back.
