I have been working at Education Management Corporation

Pros

Great company to work for!! The Academic Counseling management and teams are phenomenal. I like that there are opportunities for advancement. Whenever an internal position is available it is announced and EDMC does a great job in training their employees on changes whenever changes happen.

Cons

Admission Representatives have salaries that are way higher than Academic Counselors; however Academic Counselors are required to have a Bachelors degree and assume more responsibility. I believe that an emphasis on the importance of an Academic Counselor is undervalued. However the position is less stressful and a lower salary for reduced stress I can agree with. Great Academic Team and management offset the cons.

    A reactive organization, made up of former University of Phoenix executives, that can not think ahead of the curve.

    Pros

    The pay was considerably higher than most education organizations

    Cons

    Archaic technology and poor leadrship

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a way to make the cross functional team matrices work together, instead of against each other so grad teams are really working to a common goal.

    I worked at Education Management Corporation

    Pros

    Good location, always hiring, sometimes can be a friendly work environment, pay is relatively decent in this economy, young people working there

    Cons

    Too many to list, just look up for-profit education and learn that you will be selling $20 - $30k pieces of useless paper to poor people

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't treat your lower level employees like junk, I've never seen a place with such rude upper management, the dress code is ridiculously strict for no reason, it's an ONLINE university
