    The Education Management Corporation was a fair, cooperative, and problem free employer

    Pros

    The pros of my job were that I was able to find employment while also being a full time student.

    Cons

    A con was that my work hours did take a way from the hours that I needed to study and practice my skills in my art program.

    Advice to Management

    My advice would be to be a little less rigid in the hiring process because many capable students were denied employment.

    Insightful experience of the company's lack of integrity and limited resources to increase learning outcomes.

    Pros

    There are few and my time there was insightful with no pros to report.

    Read the reviews, data from financial reports and your local accrediting agencies.

    Advice to Management

    Get a bailout or sellout and stop destroying people's lives with education fraud.

    Close to my home, friendly co-workers.

    Management style is one of fear and intimidation. Management enjoys letting the employees know they are not valued.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the fear and intimidation style. Support the employees.

    Pros

    Education Management Corporation is a great company. There are a lot of friendly and talented people that work for the company and everyone supports each other. Managers and supervisors provide the freedom to get your work done.

    Cons

    I would highly, highly recommend that you do a lot of research before joining the company. There are a lot of changes happening, and you need to be comfortable with the changes.


  10. It has been an emotional roller coaster to say the least.

    Pros

    If you make it to your one year anniversary then you receive a $5,000 raise. The benefits are pretty good.

    Cons

    The goals set by the company are unrealistic, management is terrible, and it's very stressful relying on unreliable people to meet your goals every month because if you don't then you'll be let go from the company.

    Advice to Management

    Be realistic and give positive feedback to your teams.

    Pros

    Great place to work. It is fast paced and high pressure. You must be adaptable to change. The people are professional and nice for the most part. Pay is decent.

    Cons

    Long hours. Located in the strip district. Parking stinks. Fast paced and high pressure.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the lower level employees more. We are in the trenches and are in touch with what is really going on.
