    I worked at Education Management Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Good compensation and benefits, smaller campuses mean high levels of student interaction.

    Cons

    Campuses don't have as much autonomy as I would like to see. Upper level managment within EDMC is out of touch with the "ground troops" on the campuses. Because of frequent restructures, employees are fearful of the stability of their jobs on an ongoing basis.
