    I have been working at Education Management Corporation full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    -Friendly Coworkers
    -Great pay for the kind of job
    -Decent training

    Cons

    -No room for creativity
    -Boring robotic work after you're molded into the kind of machine EDMC-OHE wants you to be
    -slimey sales tactics - for example their (EDMC'S) biggest practice hammered into employees, is to overcome objections. Thats fine, but when a student who is telling me they cant enroll right now because their mom is in the hospital I was reprimanded for not saying to the potential student, "great! Sounds like you'll have alot of time to do classwork while at the hospital." Sorry, I wont take on the cold calculated aspect of what a poor corporation can be. I'm a human too. Needless to say I up and left, without having a backup job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a heart. Don't be numbers driven, if your biggest concern is having a quality conversation with potential students, rate the employee on that. Don't treat students as a cash cow.

    This job consisted of selling $60,000 psychology degrees to people who could not afford them and would never use them.
