A fun place to work with great colleagues
Instructor, Veterinary Assistant Program (Former Employee), Hillside, ILOctober 15, 2014
Pros: great colleagues, overall an enjoyable job, flexible scheduling
Cons: almost any student is admitted, and the corporate culture is impersonal
The college allowed for flexible scheduling for the most part--adjunct/part-time instructors can choose which classes they teach. However, enrollment can vary from semester to semester, so part-timers are not always guaranteed a minimum number of hours, or may have to work awkward schedules (a mix of day and night classes) to make ends meet. Full-time – more... instructors, however, may be subject to any schedule given to them.

Part-time instructors teach classes and then are required to put in a number of office hours based on their number of classroom hours. This is a good time to get planning and grading done. Instructors and department directors all work in an open common area at cubicle computer stations, and if you have fun colleagues, this open workspace is ideal for promoting collaboration.

The students and classroom culture varies, but overall they are fun. The enrollment standards are not vigorous, so there is occasionally a student who does not seem suited for the program.

This is a corporate-run private college, so there is a bit of bureaucracy, but if your direct managers and directors are good (mine were), you should not have any direct problems with this.

Unfortunately, Sanford Brown locations are closing because their parent corporation, Career Education Corporation, got into a bit of legal trouble for falsifying data on student job placement and student financial assistance, and for for not being forthright to prospective students. Since the folks in admissions are paid commission and the corporate culture promotes quantity rather than quality, Admissions officers would tell prospective students whatever they have to to get them to enroll. Many students in the classroom were upset when they found out that the curriculum did not cover what they were told by Admissions when they signed up.

But overall, if you get the opportunity to work for Sanford Brown, it's an enjoyable job. – less

Medical Billing Specialist Instructor (Former Employee), Austin, TXJuly 10, 2014
Pros: beautiful new buildings and new equipment
Cons: the lack of enrollment was the demise of the austin campus
A morning meeting to start the day, any updates or concerns could be addressed. The management was supportive as well as the co-workers. The hardest part of the job was the split shifts and the most enjoyable part of the job was helping the students change their lives.

Great Place..Sorry to see it close! :(
FA Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Middleburg Heights, OhioApril 5, 2014
Pros: flexible schedule around your academic studies
Cons: closing
Sanford Brown was a great place to work. The employees were friendly and truly cared about the success of each student that enrolled and began changing their lives for the better. For "Job Security/Advancement" I gave it 1 star for the simple fact the location is now on a "teach out" and will be closing for good in 2015. So sorry to see it go.
