Obtain competent skills based leadership that stays in place for more than 5 years to provide stability and planning.

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

    Pros

    Some nice co-workers, that all quit about the same time I did. Those employees that tried to actually help the students were told not to be of any assistance.

    Cons

    They are corrupt, unethical, immoral, no concern for students' welfare. Their main concern was always the stock price. Upper management was give shares of stock during the IPO at $18 per share value, which has now fallen to $3.

    Advice to Management

    How do you look in the mirror each day? Oh yea, it's your paychecks. Too bad you can't say the same for your stock price.

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

    Pros

    Great pay, great benefit with free degree for employees. If you're someone who is good at sales at any cost this may be a good fit for you.

    Cons

    High pressure sales environment with strict metrics that forces expensive colleges upon people better suited for community college or other more budget friendly options.

    Advice to Management

    Back of the high pressure sales idea and run as a smaller firm to help soften some the the harsh stigma of for profit schools
