Awful management
instructor (Former Employee) –  Tampa, FloridaJuly 31, 2018
The worst management I have ever seen and they could care less about you and your skills; It's all about the numbers. Your job hangs over your head constantly and the turnover in directors are insane.

Great place to work at if you're looking to grow from within!
Executive Director (Former Employee) –  West Covina, CAJuly 26, 2018
I've worked with UEI for more than 10 years. This company recognizes hard working people and goes the length to promote from within as well. I'm disappointed in the reviews that others have reviewed of UEI/IEC. It sounds like to me these are people who were out for themselves and not for the students.

The CEO is a visionary and sincerely cares about how his employees are doing. The COO is a hand-on man of many talents. Both of which are a privileged to have worked with.

Training and support is ubiquitous but don't expect someone to hand you a manual. In order to be successful, you've got to be a self starter. This organization hires and retains talent.

Take it from someone who's been with this company for a long time. Yes, hard work is necessary! Isn't that what work is about? There are many talents in this company who are the "jedi's" of this industry. If you have an opportunity to work for this organization, know that at the end of the day you always touch a students life.
Pros
Growth from Within and lots of recognition

First job in higher ed
Admissions (Former Employee) –  Jacksonville, FLMay 31, 2018
This was my first job in the for profit arena of higher education. It takes a tough skin to work in this field. Long hours, mostly adequate pay but you have to be willing to make "decisions" that will impact your students in many ways

Horribly unorganized
Educator (Former Employee) –  Orlando, FLMay 15, 2018
This is the worst school I have ever experienced. Incompetent leadership deflects all responsibility. This school has no educational standards and has been on accreditation probation for three years consecutively.
Pros
Easy to get hired, they are desperate
Cons
Everything after being hired

Change Over Facility
Instructor (Former Employee) –  Huntington Park, CAApril 11, 2018
A typical day begins teaching at the assigned hours. There are two breaks for 20 minutes each however the first one in the morning or the last break at the evening shift is the only actual break you get.

What I've learned is that faculty turnovers are high, mostly because of pay raises that are done based on your work and time in never happens.

You have to find supplies where ever they're at and usually there is never enough.

Student drops are high because they don't supply the proper equipment.

The only good part is seeing a student actually graduate and get hired, but that always depends on the instructors ability to encourage them.

Instructors do the core work, but it is only the administrative staff that gets the credit and raises.

It's sad
Pros
Lunch is provided only during in house training
Cons
no supplies or properly working equipment

FCC Orlando
Director of Career Services (Current Employee) –  Orlando, FLApril 10, 2018
Poor leadership , Admissions and Presidents focus is low income and those with little or no education past 9yh grade.

They lure in these students by offering High School Classes and pass the student which allows the student to sit for FCC classes; they pass the FCC student which leads to a graduate and then expects Career Services to place the graduate whom can barely spell, read or write.

There are violent fights often and staff/faculty are scared to work there.
Pros
You will receive a paycheck
Cons
The entire experience

change of ownership
Executive Director (Former Employee) –  Margate, FLMarch 28, 2018
I worked for IEC after they purchased FCC. The transition was good at first, but once they learned more about the Florida schools they wanted to make them more like the campuses in California which has a completely different set of students. The Florida schools had more students with English as a second language and foreign diplomas and therefore some processes took a little longer.

(ie getting diplomas translated)
Pros
great team
Cons
hard to manage schools from across the country

I love working at IEC. If you are a go getter and intrested in making a difference, this is the company for you. It's no picnic and hard work is expected.

Not my ideal workplace at all. Management was forever changing and I witnessed some business practices that were not in alignment with my values. Good experience though with learning the business.

High turnover rate says it all
Director (Former Employee) –  CaliforniaSeptember 14, 2017
Employees (lower level, management) come and go; highest turnover I have ever experienced which results in low employee satisfaction. It's all about politics and not the students, so much potential it's unfortunate they can't figure out how to hang on to good people, the people make the company.

Reactionary Leadership and Lacks Vision
Employee (Current Employee) –  FloridaJune 22, 2017
Focus and expectations change daily. No accountability at corporate level - disconnected from field. There is no onboarding or training for new hires. Results in very high turn-over at the local level. Turn-over is resulting in a very poor environment. Staff is not prepared for daily operations and needs. Company is consistently seeking top talent, but does not work at keeping the top talent. Promotional opportunities are minimal due to a lack of a developmental culture. The company operates in a grey area which is concerning due to the oversight of Ed and the accrediting bodies. Corporate officers are not aligned on vision; nor are they aligned on strategy. The company has a very entropic leadership style. Verticals continue to clash over what is right and what is wrong.
Pros
Wages are competitive and benefits are fine
Cons
Not a long term career. High level of churn and not training.

Worst work environment I have ever been exposed to
Admissions Representative (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAApril 1, 2017
I have to say if you value yourself or your abilities DO NOT work here. Your success is controlled by the management and highly favored admission representative. It's all about numbers (which is ok in a for profit) but the expectations are ridiculous and unattainable. You are constantly threatened on a daily basis and be littled... no room for growth at all and they lie to employees as well as students...DO NOT waste your time or energy.. move on!

Nursing mill
Nursing Faculty (Former Employee) –  Miami, FLMay 22, 2016
Why the Florida Board of nursing continues to look the other way is beyond me. It is obvious these types of programs will never become accredited and yet continue to remain open and take students' money. Nurses that work in these facilities as faculty or nursing directors cannot be blind. They are unethical and greedy and their licenses should be revoked.

These types of programs close down and open up with new names but same unethical standards.

If you value your reputation, do not work here.
Pros

They go through admission advisors like they are nothing.
Admissions Advisor (Former Employee) –  UEI AnaheimMarch 30, 2016
Do not expect proper training. If you don't meet your quota you are viewed as worthless. They make you work overtime on a Saturday. Work life balance means nothing to this company. Do not even bother if you care at all about job security.
Pros
Nothing.
Cons
You will be working with miserable fellow advisors.
