I have been working at Education Management Corporation part-time

Pros

If you are a student at Ai, its helps alot by having an on campus job at your school. Its extra finances that could help you and since you are there for long hours anyways. Helps you recognize faculty and staff, directors, and even students

Cons

its an average salary job just to help you get by. Not that many positions and you have to prove that you financially is within a range that needs the source of income.

    I worked at Education Management Corporation full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great pay, title and HOPE at first. Some colleagues were great. New campus

    Cons

    Revolving door , sell, sell, sell or be fired. The sales process is cleverly disguised as consultative counseling. The education is WAY over priced. 100k+ for a degree from a for profit art school.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being so greedy. Reduce tuition, reduce your pay. Focus on student outcomes and debt or your company will continue to loose. Wake up! You can't turn people over as a way to show you are making progress. Wrong business model.

    Pros

    Avoid this employer, at all costs. Before even accepting an interview, speak candidly with current or former employees about their thoughts and personal experience.

    Cons

    Company has cut benefits, did not payout on bonuses, has frozen merit increases, and downsized significantly in 2014. Although an Education Institution, EDMC doesn't train it's employees. There are no perks - downtown parking is at full cost to the employees, Aetna insurance is very expensive with poor coverage and many local providers are out of network, vacation is use it or lose it and there is pressure not to take it or to work during it due to understaffing issues, 401k match was cut, life insurance was cut, and work from home is only in the event of an emergency or special circumstance.
    The whole employment program is geared towards bleeding the employee dry until they leave or are laid off. Severance package is very poor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create new products and distribution channels to keep revenue flowing, as student pool is drying up due to scandals, reputation, and governmental hatred for you.

    Learn to treat employes as assets vs collateral damage/dispensable liabilities.

    Fire your entire leadership staff.
