Mission: Education that builds careers and transforms the lives of those who teach, learn and work here.
I have been working at Education Management Corporation (More than 10 years)
It gave me the opportunity to teach for 12 years. Wonderful colleagues, terrific local leadership. Paid for two higher degrees, an MA and a PhD. I love my students!
The company is headquartered in Pittsburgh, so there is a cultural difference based on demographics. They never understood New York or the bureaucracy of the State Education Department. The Pittsburgh upper management had no concept of how to run a school--no, they are running a business. So now they are closing 15 schools, hurting the very students they always said they were serving. Too bad for us that we were wrong.
Advice to Management
Come up with an honest equitable plan for a SCHOOL. Let the administrations run the schools. Listen to the teachers on how the school should be set up--we have to work on those classrooms.Lastly, REPLACE old machines. Students cannot work if the machines don't work. Forget bonuses for the Bigwigs, put extra money in the arts labs, the physical plant of the schools and reduce the number of on-line tests the faculty and staff have to take.
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Education Management Corporation (Pittsburgh, PA).
two interviews. first face to face, second by phone. they do tend to change the process from time to time. the person interviewing you is not necessarily your future manager, as managment is always changing at the company.
