I have been working at Education Management Corporation full-time

Pros

Faculty have flexibility to set up their classes as they wish. They're not tied to teaching a standard program prescribed for every single campus as is the case at some other for-profit institutions.

Cons

Very low quality of students recruited. Faculty are expected to teach a greater load at this company than at any other institutions in the area.

    I worked at Education Management Corporation full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    met some nice people while working at EDMC. employees encourage themselves and try to keep it light eventhough we all knew of the big dark management cloud watching

    Cons

    the training seems to be HELP the students get an Education oriented while once you actually are out of the training it is al about the numbers. you are always worried to not meet the numbers because that means that you will be losing your job. its a constant stress of enroll students on the phone "cold call " style, some are weird some didnt even wanna go to school some are just cursing at you for calling in the first place. you need to get two students a week else well you might be next on the fired list. huge layoffs and huge lack of trust in management... spend the whole day on a phone was not worth it at all

    Advice to Management

    management needs to grow up they act like they are still in high school and all are out there to get you. there is no career opp. unless ur friends and buddies with management very high schoolish

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

    Pros

    The money, because I got in before they got rid of the matrix. What they pay now is not worth it unless you are DESPERATE!

    Cons

    Where to begin? The management team has 2 plans for success, potlucks or layoffs. I have been here 4 years and have seen about an equal number of both. Not surprisingly, neither are effective against a imploding for-profit education market. Goals are unrealistic and unattainable ( I say this having hit the goals before through little more than sheer luck and circumstance) the punishments far out weigh the rewards. Did I mention they cut rasies for 2 years and the stock is below 4$ as of this posting? Not exatly what i had imagined during my 4 years of business school.

    Advice to Management

    Find a cliff....then jump off it.
