Coordinator (Former Employee) –  United StatesSeptember 14, 2018
The work environment in the department where I worked was dreadful. Some of my coworkers were lovely people, but the management in my department was dreadful. My position was often given tasks to complete with no instructions, and once staff completed them, the managers would find issue with how the task was completed every time. There is no way to succeed. Massive differences in pay between staff members with the same position. As much as employees are set up to fail, students are set up to fail even more so. Do not work here. Do not fall for it.
Pros
One work remote day per week
Cons
Horrendous management, differential treatment of staff, pay inequity, no HR support

Great Tuition Reduction Benefit
Financial Services Representative (Current Employee) –  United StatesSeptember 6, 2018
Nice place to work. Pays more than other call center opportunities in the same area. Excellent benefits include work from home opportunities, 90% tuition discount if the employee chooses to attend Walden University online. Work can be stressful during term starts with back to back calls and mandatory overtime shifts. Can easily lead to burnout. Offices throughout the United States however remote offices don't offer much in advancement opportunities. Rates for medical benefits is bar none the best I have ever experienced.
Pros
Nice pay, wonderful tuition discount, great rates on medical benefits
Cons
Provide more recognition to reps and offer more advancement opportunities

Poor management culture
Business Instructor (Current Employee) –  Al MadīnahApril 24, 2018
Management need to pay close attention to Instructors. In fact Management have little respect for Instructors. In some instances, students are more respected than Instructors. An instructor can't even walk freely around

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
