Instructor (part-time) (Current Employee) –  United StatesJanuary 12, 2019
I wish there were HONEST reviews out there before I started the job. I thought I did my diligence but I was wrong. This is literally the worst job I’ve ever had. The management in California wrote a book about excellent companies and send out weekly quotes from the book. I honestly don’t know how they sleep at night.

When this school is eventually shut down, I will NOT be surprised. They only care about money. It doesn’t matter if you are blind, deaf and mute, admissions will enroll you and then put the students on to education to teach them and career services to get a blind person a job in HVAC. Some of the students can’t even READ. But all you have to do is show up with a pulse and you will pass.

Also, students are going through a lot (homelessness, domestic violence, extreme poverty) and the ceo honestly thinks a “good teacher” will keep a student coming to school. Please. Some of these kids go hungry and you sell them the dream of a $10h career after getting $20k into debt. It’s really predatory lending and once someone is in office who cares enough to crack down on career colleges, they will be right behind Corinthians, Everst and ITT Tech. Good riddance too. I hope some of the leadership actually goes to jail for what they are doing to the poor communities across the country.

Anywho, being an employee sucks too. The holidays are bare minimum (like, they only let you off cause they would go to jail FASTER if they didn’t). Vacation accrues at 2 hrs per pay period and it won’t even let you accrue past a certain amount until you take some days. Smh.

Overtime
  more... is really MANDATORY but NOBODY is getting paid for it and has to work off the clock to meet “numbers”. IT is the worst. I’d rather connect to a metro pcs wifi than theirs sometimes. Just every part of this company is toxic and I could go on but I hope you get the point. Don’t do it. If you love yourself and have a sliver of conscious, stay away!

Sorry about the rant but the world needs to know...

Pros
The check deposits ontime every 2 weeks
Cons
Literally everything else... not an exaggeration, unfortunately.

Don't work here!!!!
Sr. Admissions Representative (Former Employee) –  Fresno, CADecember 5, 2018
This is a horrible place to work unless you like an environment where it is "grossly mismanaged" and they lie to your face on a daily basis. Also, this place is full of favoritism to where they make sure only a chosen few are successful on a monthly basis. I didn't know of anyone who was happy to be there. EVERYONE was/is looking elsewhere to work.
Pros
Absolutley Nothing
Cons
Favortism, Extremely Poor Management, Management will lie to your face

Great Place to Work
Student Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Gardena, CANovember 1, 2018
IEC is one of the best companies to work for. The company prides itself on customer service, continuous training, and pushing employees to be the best! Management and the people you work with are like family. If you are a hard worker, self-motivated, and want to make a true impact on students lives IEC us the place to be.
Pros
Great benefits, management, amazing workplace culture
Cons
Health benefits could be better

IEC, UEI and FCC is only for those who care, work hard and have pride!
Student Finance Representative (Former Employee) –  Miami, FLOctober 30, 2018
Best organization in the U.S. I’ve been in career education for 28 years and last four at IEC. I have worked for 5 other school groups and none of them had the integrity, honesty and focus on student success as IEC, UEI and FCC. This organization invests millions of dollars on staff development and making sure students receive top quality training and education. But, IEC, UEI and FCC are not for lazy people who don’t care and just want to collect a paycheck. So, if you want to apply, make sure you are passionate, caring, accountable and you will work hard for students.
Pros
Integrity and advancement for winners
Cons
Too many lazy losers on the east coast schools especially

Great place to work
Accounting (Current Employee) –  Irvine, CAOctober 30, 2018
IEC is awesome! Lots of recognition, lots of accolades for employees.
Salary is competitive with other education companies. Lots of good people. Our CEO is fantastic and a visionary, before he came to IEC, we had nothing, now we have a thriving business.

IEC requires you to work, perform and deliver results. If you dont like to do that you will not like it here.

IEC is for me!
Pros
Results oriented company, lots of hard work and lots of recognition. Great benefits
Cons
None! Ok no pet insurance, would like to have that

Instructor (Former Employee) –  Anaheim, CAOctober 25, 2018
Management try to control employees with hopes and dreams of advancement only to hire and promote others while you are tasked with the job. Very deceptive business practices. Once this occurs they pass the buck as to who was responsible for this practice and it is circular and leads back to the initial person. They hired a student fresh out of one of their programs to teach the new students. How does that new instructor have field experience when they just graduated (sorry rhetorical question)?
Pros
none

All about the results
Campus President (Current Employee) –  FloridaSeptember 23, 2018
all about the results.. Sr. Management are not independent thinkers...they are yes men to the CEO that thinks the culture is awesome but in actuality is not what he believes it to be....The company operates as the top believes it should be and true feedback is never really considered because it never gets the attention it should.

The company has a ton of talent ...due to all the recent closures in The industry. If the industry has a resurgence...the company is a prime picking ground for those that need talent!
Pros
Independence
Cons

Horrible place to work at, avoid avoid avoid
Medical Instructor (Former Employee) –  Tampa, FLSeptember 15, 2018
Management and higher ups are highly unqualified and unorganized, supplies and equipment often lacking, admissions will accept just about anyone with a pulse. I've had students who were drug addicts with felonies, homeless and pulled off the street and enrolled in promise of success and money. Dept of education should investigate for fraudulent activities. Drop out rate is high because they keep enrolling the same population pool. Learning is not a priority of the school but high enrollment and retention goals are, numbers matter most and good instructors are not valued as they should.
Pros
some good co-workers
Cons
low pay, no benefits, problem students, no supplies, unorganized.

Financial Aid Advisor (Former Employee) –  Boynton Beach, FLSeptember 15, 2018
Hostile work environment! No promotion opportunities! Management DOES NOT value employees! The turnover rate is through the roof! They constantly post positions on Indeed because employees who know their worth end up leaving! This is the worst educational organization I've ever worked for.
Pros

Hostile work environment, horrible management, no chance for advancement

Admissions Representative (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXSeptember 13, 2018
I would not recommend working here unless you want to be demoralized. This is straight up sales/telemarketing/cold calling job and are in the business JUST for profit. Their accreditation that is hung on the wall is EXPIRED. They do not care about you. They will lie to you so you work for them, but after a few weeks the true colors start showing. Horrible culture. Every department does not like each other. Staff turn over. They hire people with criminal background and do not even care if students have criminal backgrounds. All they want is to put people in 20k+ debt for a low standard education..The teachers do not even have Masters degrees..some teachers are previous student. Do not do it.. find something else unless you want to be unhappy and treated horrible. If you are unethical then this the right place for you,but if you have standards keep looking for something else.
Pros
good pay
Cons
everything.

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

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.

Everything after being hired

Cutlure Could Be Better
Compliance Officer (Current Employee) –  Miami, FLMay 8, 2018
Constantly worried about job security. Unless you meet your daily numbers, your job is questioned. Promotion from within unlikely unless someone "likes you". Management constantly worried about meeting numbers as opposed to QUALITY of education.
Pros
Paid vacation and sick time.
Cons
Job security

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
