I have been working at Education Management Corporation full-time for more than a year

Pros

Multiple locations around the company, great product - education, great employee benefits, opportunities to grow in different career areas with the company.

Cons

Lots of changes in senior leadership, leaders aren't visible to the employees around the country, decisions are sometimes made in a vacuum at the corporate offices and not vetted with the managers in the field who are closest to the business and our customers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hold more open employee roundtables, walk the floor, get out of your offices in the tower, listen, communicate, create a positive environment so we can truly be a "best place to work!"

    Pros

    Good company to work for. At market for hiring salaries. 2nd largest proprietary school company.

    Cons

    Going through a lot of changes due to current political climate. Lots of turnover of senior and middle management so a lot of the business intellegence has left. Providing education to middle-tier demographics is somehow not as noble as it once was even though the for-profit education sector is the only way many people will ever be able to get a degree.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Well... First, tell people what's going on without the fluff or nonsense. Second, provide a realistic roadmap of how the company will get to the place it needs to be. Third, provide some stability so employees are thinking about next year in a positive way, not a "better get my resume together" way.
