I worked at Education Management Corporation

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
