    I have been working at Education Management Corporation part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I submitted an application for an adjunct position and was called for an interview. When I interviewed with the Dean, we talked about the school and the students. I was asked about my teaching philosophy and my comment level to quality education. I was hired on the spot and asked to fill out background check paperwork and other human resource related documents. I have been with them for about a year now and love working for this company. The management is easy to work with regarding schedule and they provide a professional work atmosphere.

    Cons

    I have not found anything negative to report.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    Multiple locations around the company, great product - education, great employee benefits, opportunities to grow in different career areas with the company.

    Cons

    Lots of changes in senior leadership, leaders aren't visible to the employees around the country, decisions are sometimes made in a vacuum at the corporate offices and not vetted with the managers in the field who are closest to the business and our customers.

    Advice to Management

    Hold more open employee roundtables, walk the floor, get out of your offices in the tower, listen, communicate, create a positive environment so we can truly be a "best place to work!"
