I have been working at Education Management Corporation full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Nice offices, people and views. Decent enough equipment. Good pay.

Cons

Crappy benefits. Lack of job security. Workload often out-weighs capacity.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Rough times at EDMC due to the economy. Find ways to reward your employees to give yourself a chance in terms of retaining the good employees. Why not give the week between Christmas and New Years off--nothing really gets done that week and this is an Education company. There are two large corps in the K&L gates building that offer comparable salaries, better insurance and significantly more time off. A little tempting to your capable IT people.

    I worked at Education Management Corporation full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    While I was there, the company was trying to throw off the yolk of Goldman Sachs and buy back their stock. They also were trying to shift the culture to one centered around the success of students rather than the pumping as many students through class as possible. I'm not sure if they've been successful at making the shift.

    -easy to advance, if you are a man
    -young culture

    Cons

    Convincing students who have low academic skill to take on thousands of dollars in debt for an online course is difficult and at time morally questionable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a better way to keep students in school. Students are taking too big of a financial risk to not finish their education and they need outside support to be able to do it. This will also increase your bottom line as each student spends more on more classes.
