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

Pros

You get good sales training constantly. You'll really learn how to sell. My team was very close knit, the pay was decent, and there are advancement opportunities if you're "in" with the right people.

Cons

There were so many shady things going on it was like a soap opera. Managers got fired for inappropriate behavior, recruiters got fired for bad practices, good people who met goals got let go because they weren't liked by management. Quite a circus!

Advice to Management

I don't know what to say since management is such a big part of the problem.

    Too structured. Too many responsibilities to be completed in a 50 hour work week.

    Advice to Management

    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.
