I worked at Education Management Corporation full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Pay is competitive and initial impressions are very good

Cons

It will not take you long to find out that the culture which is cultivated by senior management is one of decit and mistrust. You are led to believe that it is an open and inviting environment, but in reality the culture is one of mistrust and back-stabbing.....and is supported by the c-suite. So long as you keep your head down, don't ask questions "just go along", you should be fine.

    I worked at Education Management Corporation (less than a year)

    Pros

    Pay is good but it could be better. They have really good trainers, Vinh Tu is one of them. They layed off allot of employees so I am not sure if he is still there. They have different vendors come into the lunch room and they provide different foods different days of the week.

    Cons

    Horrible horrible upper management. They do not listen to their employees nor their managers whom they depend on to run their teams. Every manager is stressed and is on written warnings because their teams cannot hit the sales goals that the upper management provides. The environment is not employee friendly, I studied leadership at ASU and the upper management did not portray any qualities that a leader should obtain.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your managers on the floor and allow them to run their team the way they feel is appropriate. Do not micro manage and stop worrying about the bottom dollar, there is one take away from ASU that taught me to worry about your employees and their happiness and the money / bottom dollar will eventually increase.
