Worst job of my career.

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

I worked at Education Management Corporation

Pros

Decent pay for entry level positions.

Cons

Focus on sales and numbers. I worked for the "Art Institute" branch of EDMC. The Associate Directors of Admission positions were a total joke. While this is really a completely entry level sales position, the title is inflated in an effort to convince unsuspecting student targets that they're speaking to a higher up in the organization. There is a focus on getting NUMBERS of students enrolled and no focus whatsoever on the quality of those students. This is an online school, and ADAs are encouraged to convince people to enroll, even knowing that those individuals don't have (and can't afford computers).

    Pros

    decent pay. good benefits. My co-workers are my family.

    Cons

    If you have a family, you will never see them. You will work saturdays, evenings. Upper Management (EDMC) which controls the campus I work for is pretty much clueless, greedy, inconsistent in implementing the frequent policy change. They won't let go of abusive higher management because they make their "numbers". Hostile working environment. This company is hemorrhaging and there have been frequent layoffs.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the employees! Out workloads have doubled! We are stressed out and cannot keep up with the frequent policy changes.


  2. Working for a school that is partly owned by an investment bank is an exercise in contradictions

    Good toys for teachers and opportunities for teaching experiences

    elimination of as many positions and benefits as possible

    Advice to Management

    Education for profit- Really? Maximizing profit and maximizing education can be mutually exclusive at times. Which master will you follow?
