No Transparency
Assistant Director of Admissions (Former Employee) –  Arlington, VAAugust 4, 2018
Leadership had their own agenda and not transparent. They were not interested in listening to ideas from the employee. Focus only on one thing... making money from clients. Poor customer service.
Pros
pizza was provided in some of the meetings
Cons
cut-throat

May be getting better
Technical Support Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Pittsburgh, PAJuly 30, 2018
I worked here before the Dream Center took over so I am not sure what the culture is now. It was very cut throat before and lay offs were common without warning. Poor management and work-life balance was very poor. I did learn alot there and it opened the doors for other opportunities so I don't regret it. Opportunity for advancement is one of the benefits of working there.
Pros
Good pay and benefits, good hours
Cons
Stressful work, poor management

Beware!
full-time instructor (Current Employee) –  rather not sayJuly 28, 2018
At my Ai, the faculty union made the job tolerable and fought for benefits as well as reasonable classroom size and necessary resources. However, we were the ONLY Ai with a union, and we couldn't stop them from just shutting down the school. While my colleagues and immediate supervisors showed commitment and integrity, upper management was clearly incompetent and just squeezing as much cash out of the school (and students) as possible.
Pros
Opportunity to teach
Cons
Amoral and incompetent management.

no communication
Senior, Assistant Director of Admissions (Current Employee) –  Santa Ana, CAJuly 26, 2018
I work at The Art Institute of Orange County. It is very rewarding works and helping creative individuals. The challenges come from lack of communication from DCEH. Since they bought the schools they did not disclose that they had immediate plans to close down the school. The school in Santa Ana, CA is said to close in Sep-Dec.2018

Not a good company to work for
Admissions Representative (Former Employee) –  Chandler, AZJuly 23, 2018
The company does not know how to teach the job, or properly train people. I was part of a hiring class where no one in the class made it. They are not an honest company.

Tampa is a nightmare to work in
Admissions (Current Employee) –  Tampa, FLJuly 23, 2018
Sadly, the management in Tampa is so poor and there are so many employees who want to love working there. Since Dream Center has taken over, things have simply gone from bad to worse.

Okay job
Assistant Registrar (Current Employee) –  Pittsburgh, PAJuly 9, 2018
It's a typical 9-5 with no advancement, no raises and lots of stress. Understaffed, underpaid. Would only recommend for a temp job, or to get the free college tuition for Argosy, Art Institute or South University
Pros
benefits, Pto
Cons
stressfull, overworked, underpaid

It's a job.
Senior Reporting Analyst (Current Employee) –  Pittsburgh, PAJune 28, 2018
DCEH has newly acquired the previous for-profit entity EDMC. The company has been less and less accommodating for the employees working there previously. No yearly raise and little benefits as far as 401K.

Currently the environment is low morale and DCEH has a lot of promise for change still yet need to be delivered or initiated in the favor of current employees.

Great Corporate Culture
Senior Financial Analyst III (Current Employee) –  Pittsburgh, PAMay 22, 2018
DCEH is a great place to work as the Corporate culture is fantastic. There are some good positions open to learn new advanced skills, however, the industry is in decline and a bit unsteady from a security stand point.

Unstable Organization
Director of State Licensing (Former Employee) –  Pittsburgh, PAMay 21, 2018
After the change of ownership the company took a direction which could place it in jeopardy regarding licensing and accreditation. My position was eliminated while the company continues to move toward new business enterprises which may be considered a conflict of interest by many agencies.
Pros
Working remotely
Cons

This employer is about to close shop and sold its assets to DCEH. There is not much left to say about the direction of this company and the culture. It is over.

Librarians beware
Librarian (Former Employee) –  West Palm Beach, FLApril 19, 2018
The job description for librarians at South University is not indicative of the actual job. Most of my time was spent making sure students did not have water, Drinks, or food in the library. Security guards would watch through remote cameras and call me to let me know if someone had snuck a bag of chips into the Library so I could confront them. If you are a former corrections officer, this is the perfect job for you. If you are the kind of librarian that enjoys helping students succeed and supporting faculty, look elsewhere. Many hours of my week were spent administering ADA testing and completing tasks for other departments that were not library related. Very poor HR department. This is a toxic work environment, you deserve better.
Pros
Faculty are dedicated to their students.
Cons
Lowest paid department at the University.

Poor leadership from Top to Bottom
Admissions / Admin (Former Employee) –  AustinApril 16, 2018
South University / The Dream Center is a poorly organized company. The organization is focused solely on enrolling new students, with little to no resources or time dedicated to actually serving the current student body and guiding them to their degrees. The turnover rate is high and the training is mostly non-existent. Most employees are learning on the job and do not have many resources to fall back on.


Leadership constantly promotes an atmosphere of enroll the student today or else, regardless of compliance, morals, or ethics. Almost half of the year is black out periods where employees cannot use their PTO. Also, employees are typically "asked" to work on scheduled holidays. Communication and direction is very rarely shared between the corporate office and the individual campuses. HR's response to many workplace issues was regularly slow and ineffective. Overall, I would not recommend South University to a friend or family member.
Pros
The building is nice and well maintained
Cons
Strict Dress Code, Minimal Work/Life Balance, Poor Ethics
