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!

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

    Pros

    Educational institution which is accredited and puts into writing that they seek to help their staff and students.

    Cons

    Does not actually live up to the promises made to staff and students due to the nature of the company to drive profits.

    Advice to Management

    Make a choice between profits or education because you can't have both. Efficiency leads to profits, but has a cost to end users and in an educational setting, profits must come after education is ensured. Shareholders thus, must believe stronger in the long-term power of education than of the importance of short-term profits.

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

    Pros

    Fringe benefits were great, and the internal cultural was nice

    Cons

    100% disorganized, unrealistic expectations for position responsibilities, and the work environment/duties changed so often that performing is nearly impossible

    Advice to Management

    If you continue to preach work/life balance, make it happen. Everyone I knew brought the stress and work home with them every night
