I worked at Education Management Corporation full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Compensation was good. Career opportunities up until about 2008 when the economy went down and the industry was under scrutiny.

Cons

Poor leadership at the highest levels in later years (after acquisition by Goldman Sachs in 2006).

Advice to Management

Let the local campus leadership make local decisions. Centralization led to the loss of many well qualified employees at campus locations.

    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
