I have been working at Education Management Corporation full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Management is great and tries their best to keep the team satisfied.

Cons

Company focuses on and places more value into enrollment/admissions as opposed to Academic Counseling/Advising so that we can retain our best employees as well as see our students persist.

Upper management seems disconnected, at times I feel that the people making the decisions at the top really need to consult with employees for best practices.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Very talented workforce; driven to do the right thing; great work ethic; good pay; company mission is something that is easy to champion

    Cons

    Benefits have quickly deteriorated (used to be very good); corporate culture changing - used to be collaborative but now everyone is trying to protect themselves; company has been short-sighted in looking for ways to become more efficient - only looking at layoffs; much larger savings could be realized by hiring the RIGHT staff and diving into major process change. C-Suite has ballooned with very high-priced people and high-priced consultants at the expense of rest of the company - major change is needed in management. Need to bring in true business process leaders.

    Advice to Management

    Really listen to your staff. They understand better than anyone what needs to be done to right this ship - you are woefully underestimating your own staff's strengths and capabilities. Own up to your bad decisions and work to correct them - not repeat them...it is IMPOSSIBLE to cut your way back to profitability!
