I have been working at Education Management Corporation full-time

Pros

decent pay. good benefits. My co-workers are my family.

Cons

If you have a family, you will never see them. You will work saturdays, evenings. Upper Management (EDMC) which controls the campus I work for is pretty much clueless, greedy, inconsistent in implementing the frequent policy change. They won't let go of abusive higher management because they make their "numbers". Hostile working environment. This company is hemorrhaging and there have been frequent layoffs.

Advice to Management

Listen to the employees! Out workloads have doubled! We are stressed out and cannot keep up with the frequent policy changes.
