Good coworkers. Still feels good to help students attain their goals.

Cons

Management has lost touch with students and staff.
It feels like walking into a morgue.
Assistant Directors of Admissions reps lie to students which hurts the incoming students.

    I worked at Education Management Corporation full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Being a leader in the career college environment can be extremely rewarding and EDMC has developed/aquired an impressive diversity of offerings in its portfolio. In theory, this should lend itself to a sustainable business model which can create value for its students

    Cons

    ...then Goldman came in and now it's a stinking heap of trash. Think that's too harsh - just google "EDMC" and get out of the way. Stunning micromanagement, misalignment of mission vs. student needs, student loan availability dramatically skews the value proposition away from the student's long term goals and, more importantly, disappointing outcomes.
