Potential but lacking direction
There are some huge benefit to working for one of the largest companies in distance higher education; ability to work on a global scale and with diverse audiences, never a limit to on the job learning if you have the initiative to take on additional responsibilities, and the quality of people here nothing but amazing. However, Laureate is has been undergoing massive organizational changes and there has been a lack of clarity in direction from leadership which makes it hard to find direction and professional growth paths within the organization.

Stuck in constant change
Laureate has much to offer however the constant change of upper management comes with different visions and how to achieve the goals set. Oftentimes, no practices would last 30 to 45 days before trying something new.

Job stability nonexistent
Your job here is solely dependent on management and coworkers liking you or not. If they don’t like you then they will nitpick until they have 3 write ups and fire you.

Great Work Culture
There is a good work culture at this company. Everyone is very nice, friendly, and professional. Management is good and the work/personal life balance is good as well. Depending on who your manager is, you could have a work from home day which is pretty nice. I love how management helps with career development by being a supportive of trainings and certification.

Management Hardly Listens
Greatest part of working with Laureate was the flexibility of hours. While it might seem like its not about the money at first, you quickly learn that the only thing that really drives the company is recruiting students. Once a student is recruited, it doesn't really matter what happens --- they are all about the numbers. Lots of frustrated students and staff. They ask for feedback from staff but never listen when feedback is given. They are also quick to change things. In 2 years of working, I changed departments at least 4 times.

I liked my job
I liked my job, but I needed to move to United States Of America. It was the best way for all my family. This job was so demanding, in the work place and at home.

Falta de benefícios melhores, e sem carreira.

Friendly
Everyone is not your "friend" but everyone is friendly and kind. Work is results based and there are lots of meetings but there's always someone gunning for you.
Pros
Meetings catered
Cons
People talk about you behind your back.

It wasn't bad
The position was good. Was an easy job and my coworkers were fun but there was too much work drama and gossip. This is not a call center but a online university. We called potential students to ask if they were interested in going to our school. Now the department they created for this was apparently a temp department since my whole department was laid off out of no where. No warning, no opportunity to go to another department.. Nothing. So if you get hired there do mot go into it expecting job security unless you are an enrollment advisor.
Other than that it was ok job. Just don't go in there thinking you have job security if you are being hired for a position for a "new department."

Didn't get the full experience
I was part time and working in Miami, they didn't really know to utilize me to my full potential. Everyone that was full time and salaried took advantage of the work experience.

Really be ready for change on the daily
Manager and coworkers were great. Upper leadership is poor and no direction. Lower than industry pay. They constantly realign and realign and makes it impossible to have cohesion, consistency or order. They have no loyalty to employees. Will lay you off in a heartbeat. Good luck trying to get promoted from within, it's who you know not what you know.
Pros
Benefits
Cons
Pay, lack of advancement, job stability, poor leadership
