"Worst job of my career."

Pros

Decent pay for entry level positions.

Cons

Focus on sales and numbers. I worked for the "Art Institute" branch of EDMC. The Associate Directors of Admission positions were a total joke. While this is really a completely entry level sales position, the title is inflated in an effort to convince unsuspecting student targets that they're speaking to a higher up in the organization. There is a focus on getting NUMBERS of students enrolled and no focus whatsoever on the quality of those students. This is an online school, and ADAs are encouraged to convince people to enroll, even knowing that those individuals don't have (and can't afford computers).

    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.

    Pros

    Teammates, Academic Counseling and Advising Managers and Directors.

    Cons

    Salary for Academic Counselors and Advisors are lower than the salaries for Admission Advisors while more employees that are a part of the Academic staff have obtained or are working on graduate degrees. Layoffs.
