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

Pros

EDMC does pay well and offers a fair benefits package in most cases.

Cons

The industry is facing enormous issues, coming under scrutiny from the federal government. EDMC's priorities are profits, not students which can be a difficult moral dilemma for employees. In most cases, there is not room for growth or personal contribution to the company.

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

    Pros

    Ethical and talented group of employees. Time-off policies are employee friendly. Compensation was very competitive. The training was outstanding.

    Cons

    Work-life balance not ideal. Declining enrollment and increased competition from less-expensive online universities created widespread workforce reductions.

    Advice to Management

    True transparency throughout the organization should be key to employee engagement and talent management!

    Pros

    Good work hours and great people.

    Too much emphasis on getting students in after the deadline...like on the DAY the classes start.

    Advice to Management

    Let the students choose their start date.
