I have been working at Education Management Corporation part-time (more than an year)

Pros

I submitted an application for an adjunct position and was called for an interview. When I interviewed with the Dean, we talked about the school and the students. I was asked about my teaching philosophy and my comment level to quality education. I was hired on the spot and asked to fill out background check paperwork and other human resource related documents. I have been with them for about a year now and love working for this company. The management is easy to work with regarding schedule and they provide a professional work atmosphere.

Cons

I have not found anything negative to report.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the good work!

    Current Employee - Admissions Manager in Pittsburgh, PA

    I have been working at Education Management Corporation full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, 401k, work with some great people, make a lot of good friendships

    Cons

    DOA's and above are truly horrible human beings. They treat lower level management and staff level like dirt, they have no problem telling you that you are expendable. Admissions department hasn't hit a plan in over a year, yet this gets blamed on everyone but those in charge. If you not part of the "circle of trust/evil" you are thrown to the wolves. Overworked, severely underpaid, no hope of any raises this year, told if you don't like it you can leave. Director of Financial Aid has no degree and doesn't even attempt to take free classes. Male DOA's use position for leverage for sec.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop blaming your underpaid staff level and start making changes in middle and upper management. Get a CEO who is not a crook. Show some respect in quality of education not quantity

    I worked at Education Management Corporation full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fringe benefits were great, and the internal cultural was nice

    Cons

    100% disorganized, unrealistic expectations for position responsibilities, and the work environment/duties changed so often that performing is nearly impossible

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you continue to preach work/life balance, make it happen. Everyone I knew brought the stress and work home with them every night
