I have been working at Education Management Corporation full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Full time benefits, educated co-workers, flexible schedule for faculty

Cons

Recruitment practices that accept un prepared students. Constant changes in policies and procedures that become confusing. Low office morale steeped by lay-offs and lack of transparency. Lack of leadership. Industry instability with gainful employment. Centralization practices that thwart decision making at the local level. Emphasis on profit not education.

Advice to Management

Hire competent leaders not "yes" men and women. Place accountability on leaders in the organization. Place accountability on ethical practices within the company. Be more interested in education than profit. Actions speak louder than words.

    I worked at Education Management Corporation full-time

    Pros

    The Human Resource team is helpful and the employee benefits are great. If you are self motivated, they have a lot of great internal training. The company mission and overall goal is easy to commit to.

    Cons

    The management in the location that I worked in is extremely inconsistent. While growing quickly, they promoted to many people to management who were not qualified, but were simply in the right place at the right time. Now they lose good people all the time because of it.

    Advice to Management

    Take a good hard look at what your managers actually contribute at your Phoenix office.
