I feel consistently micromanaged and incapable of exercising my intellectual and creative freedom.

I have been working at Education Management Corporation full-time (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...

    I worked at Education Management Corporation full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Sadly, Not much good these days.

    Cons

    Way too expensive. Not good value education for your dollar. CEO gets huge million dollar salary while laying off 800 employees. Too corporate. Most faculty don't have highly credentialed professional track records. The company is not interested in delivering quality education but profits for its share holders on the backs of the poorly paid faculty (work 75% more than a regular professor at a "real" college), tax payers educational loans and students expensive tuition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sell these schools back to owners that are passionate about education and care about the students and staff.
