I have been working at Education Management Corporation full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

The idea and concept of the schools started out fantastic but got lost when they sold out to Gold Man and Sac's. The Instructors really do care about their students and want them to exceed in all that they do. However the quality of staff has truely gone down hill.

Cons

It's impossible to move up they just keep blaming it on the goverment saying that salary increases are no longer allowed even if you change job titles and requirements completely. Your pay stays the same so demand high right off the bat!!!! Almost feels like you are waving candy infront of a little kid sure it looks and sounds amazing but nothing as it's promised.

Advice to Management

Take a step back and look at the years where things were going well for the company. It's time to focus on the QUALITY of education again and not the warm bodies that can fill a classroom. We need quality teachers to teach quality students.

    I worked at Education Management Corporation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Young, fun culture for people in their 20s and 30s.

    Cons

    Upper management refuses to hold mid-level management accountable for any amount of production. They all seem to be blind on purpose. Almost like a cult. It is as if they can do no wrong, which is a joke.

    Advice to Management

    Your subordinates are smarter than you. Stop acting like your title means something. You're still all idiots. You fire all the people that figure out what you are doing there, and keep everybody you can control. No room for new ideas that would work there. Way to run your company into the ground. You should fire yourselves.
