I have been working at Education Management Corporation full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Health benefits and education benefits.

Cons

Corporate culture is disappointing, politics impedes progress or recourse against management who are paranoid of their own job security

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You hire some of the best talent out there, allow them the intellectual and creative freedom to do their job without being micromanaged or without being put in their place by managers who seem paranoid of protecting their own position...

    Micromanagement creates a hostile atmosphere. When employees do not feel trusted to do their job they become unmotivated and unhappy.
