Director of Finance

Managing Director (Former Employee)
Orange, CA

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

ProsCompensation was good. Career opportunities up until about 2008 when the economy went down and the industry was under scrutiny.

ConsPoor leadership at the highest levels in later years (after acquisition by Goldman Sachs in 2006).

Advice to Senior ManagementLet the local campus leadership make local decisions. Centralization led to the loss of many well qualified employees at campus locations.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
