Company in Transition

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsVery talented workforce; driven to do the right thing; great work ethic; good pay; company mission is something that is easy to champion

ConsBenefits have quickly deteriorated (used to be very good); corporate culture changing - used to be collaborative but now everyone is trying to protect themselves; company has been short-sighted in looking for ways to become more efficient - only looking at layoffs; much larger savings could be realized by hiring the RIGHT staff and diving into major process change. C-Suite has ballooned with very high-priced people and high-priced consultants at the expense of rest of the company - major change is needed in management. Need to bring in true business process leaders.

Advice to Senior ManagementReally listen to your staff. They understand better than anyone what needs to be done to right this ship - you are woefully underestimating your own staff's strengths and capabilities. Own up to your bad decisions and work to correct them - not repeat them...it is IMPOSSIBLE to cut your way back to profitability!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    I worked at Education Management Corporation full-time for more than 5 years
