    I have been working at Education Management Corporation full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Multiple locations around the company, great product - education, great employee benefits, opportunities to grow in different career areas with the company.

    Cons

    Lots of changes in senior leadership, leaders aren't visible to the employees around the country, decisions are sometimes made in a vacuum at the corporate offices and not vetted with the managers in the field who are closest to the business and our customers.

    Advice to Management

    Hold more open employee roundtables, walk the floor, get out of your offices in the tower, listen, communicate, create a positive environment so we can truly be a "best place to work!"

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

    Pros

    Used to be you could make a decent living working for EDMC but once they went to static salaries/hourly the company became completely worthless to work there.

    Cons

    Horrible management that demeans and belittles employees all while asking for teamwork that is not rewarded. Management has no competence, no direction, layoffs happening all the time and treat their employees in a disgusting manner.

    Advice to Management

    After working there for many many years I wouldn't even know where to start to help them rectify their business. My best advice, burn the whole business down and leave it as a charred ember of what not to do as a business.
