    Don't fool yourself into thinking that this is about education...

    I worked at Education Management Corporation full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They pay is certainly nothing to complain about but is it worth it when you could very well be without a job at any given moment? Is it worth it to stare at the walls of your cubicle and slowly die inside as you convince people who often times need an education (community college would be better suited for most) to enroll? Of course, when he or she fails a class, it's your fault... ridiculous.

    Cons

    There are too many to list. I've worked in education for many years, am a PhD candidate, and have taught college-level courses at various institutions. This is a mockery of education, a waste of tax dollars, a means of taking advantage of vulnerable populations, and has no right to call itself "education". It was very rare that I actually felt good for finding the right fit for a student (it's only good if they live in a rural area and need additional courses for certification, etc).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think long and hard about what an education should be and what it is at your institution and don't kid yourself with the fluff. You know the truth.
