I worked at Education Management Corporation full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

They pay well, but are you willing to sell your soul for a paycheck? Oh, and there's free coffee and "Cup a Soup"!

Cons

Worst. Job. EVER! Be prepared to be chained to your desk, slave to the auto-dialer that will track every second of your day. Have to pee? Your bathroom break is timed and you will hear about it if you take longer than deemed necessary. Be prepared to be screamed at by not only your bosses (more, more, MORE!!!) but also the poor saps who mistakenly entered their contact information into one of the scam websites that trick them by promising a job, free laptop, gift card...etc. At first it seems all cool, until you realize that the "education" that you are selling is not worth getting for free much less the $1,500 PER CLASS that EDMC charges. Once you realize that all your efforts have produced is a lifetime of debt with no real job prospects for every hapless soul you place into class, you will hate getting up in the morning. Unless, that is, you are one of those soulless individuals who are happy to prey on the less fortunate. If so, then you will fit right in.

Advice to Management

Put together a curriculum that actually teaches something worth learning! Offer classes in fields where there actually are jobs and not just in the "passion fields".

    I worked at Education Management Corporation full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay, great location, great training program for inside sales/recruiting. Work population consists of dominantly people 1 - 5 years out of college.

    Cons

    Negative work culture. Various work experiences based on who's team you are on. They frown on telling you just how important recruiting students is to your success during your career here.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on a positive work culture.


  2. Things seem to be falling apart. No regard to employee morale.
