Industry troubles, but best in the industry

I have been working at Education Management Corporation

ProsHigher education industry is in Obama's radar which creates unnecessary challenges. There is a concerted effort to ensure compliance. Does not seem to be a major shift in core values, just a lot of extra work to satisfy regulatory agencies.

Strong leadership. Profitable. Growing.

ConsFast growth can generate concerns over whether there is a good vision and direction. The company is still in the middle of a culture change from a big small-company to a big big-company.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the communication and visibility among all employees to stay informed. In the information age, everyone wants to know about everything.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
