I worked at Education Management Corporation full-time

Pros

Working with faculty who care and interacting with students.

Cons

Too structured. Too many responsibilities to be completed in a 50 hour work week.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Obtain competent skills based leadership that stays in place for more than 5 years to provide stability and planning.

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

    Pros

    Some nice co-workers, that all quit about the same time I did. Those employees that tried to actually help the students were told not to be of any assistance.

    Cons

    They are corrupt, unethical, immoral, no concern for students' welfare. Their main concern was always the stock price. Upper management was give shares of stock during the IPO at $18 per share value, which has now fallen to $3.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    How do you look in the mirror each day? Oh yea, it's your paychecks. Too bad you can't say the same for your stock price.
