Too cheap to implement SAFe correctly
Prefer not to say (Current Employee) –  Baltimore, MDApril 22, 2018
If you lose a team member, don't expect that team member to be replaced. They care more about the budget then implementing scrum and SAFe in a manner that has meaningful results. Expect to hold more than two job roles and multiple teams because...

Hit or miss
Administrator (Current Employee) –  Columbia, MDApril 12, 2018
Some roles in this company are extremely well positioned for advancement and enhancement. Others are not, and tend to be ignored by higher-ups unless/until there's a problem. Management is equally hit or miss.
Pros
Good benefits
Cons
Poor organization and managerial culture

Editorial Intern (Former Employee) –  Baltimore, MDMarch 5, 2018
As an intern in both 2016 and 2017 I also was responsible for using social media channels such as Twitter and Facebook to promote the journal. Additionally, I was responsible for creating a comprehensive social media strategy for the journal. This required extensive research to find data for the best strategies used by other institutions of higher education as well as by companies and businesses. I developed and presented my vision on a social media engagement plan for the HLRC Facebook page, HLRC Twitter page as well as the HLRC LinkedIn page.
Pros
Challenging
Cons
Constantly changing

Productive and Very Busy
Financial Aid Counselor (Former Employee) –  Baltimore, MDJanuary 23, 2018
It really depends on your manager how far an individual advances in the company. However the company itself is pretty fair to work for considering the benefits.

Stressful numbers driven work environment
Senior Enrollment Advisor (Former Employee) –  Baltimore, MDJanuary 18, 2018
It's an extremely stressful numbers-driven work environment. Managers can make their own rules for their teams. If you get a bad manager you are basically screwed.

Poor Upper Management, No security
Digital Media Specialist (Former Employee) –  Baltimore, MDJanuary 11, 2018
You may be well compensated, maybe, but layoffs are common and irrational at this company. Disingenuous is the word I would use to describe the two-faced upper management. They are also uninspired and out of touch. Consider a job at Laureate temporary, not a career.

Senior Enrollment Advisor (Former Employee) –  Baltimore, MDJanuary 4, 2018
Laureate can be a fine place to start your career as an enrollment advisor. It's good for a young person, most of the Enrollment managers are millennials, that micro-manage. It's tough for an older person

The environment there is very chaotic, but it also offers a lot of unique experiences and career opportunities if you can keep up with it. Definitely not for everyone, but those who like a challenge will find it an exciting place to work.
