    Current Employee - Assistant Director of Admissions in Pittsburgh, PA

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

    Pros

    Ability to move to different departments and schools is easier, people you work with are typically in their mid to late 20's so it's easy to make friends, programs that the schools offer are needed in today's educational world (online=easier for working adults to go back to school), dedicated faculty

    Cons

    Company is not seen in a positive light in the media right now, management can be very militant, performace goals are unobtainable at times because many factors that play in reaching those goals are out of your control.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get to know your employees and understand their motivations can make for a more productive environment.

    I worked at Education Management Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Working with faculty who care and interacting with students.

    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.
