I worked at Education Management Corporation

Pros

A lot of really nice people work at the ground level at EDMC.

Cons

This is by far the most disorganized organization I have ever worked for. The changes are daily and are rarely communicated correctly. The technology is outdated and the mistakes made that effect the students are numerous. The only thing that matters to this company is $$$ and numbers. They honestly don't care about the their students or employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You have to spend money to make money and micromanaging your employees is demoralizing especially when there is no consistency in policies between departments that work together. An organization has to be organized and EDMC is so disorganized it will never succeed long term.

    I have been working at Education Management Corporation

    Pros

    Competitive salaries (won't find a place that will pay you what they do for the work involved). Great friendly co-workers. You can take vacation whenever you need to and they give all major holidays off and extra time.

    Cons

    Unethical business practices, Senior leadership and directors lie to employees. Unorganized communication. Unorganized when delivering new company rollouts. High pressure sales. Concerned with the bottom line ONLY, do not care about the welfare of the students.
