    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!"
