I worked at Education Management Corporation full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Fringe benefits were great, and the internal cultural was nice

Cons

100% disorganized, unrealistic expectations for position responsibilities, and the work environment/duties changed so often that performing is nearly impossible

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If you continue to preach work/life balance, make it happen. Everyone I knew brought the stress and work home with them every night

    EDMC is a failing company. Only accept employment here if you are very desperate.

    I worked at Education Management Corporation full-time

    Pros

    The internal culture is great. Also, they have many entry-level opportunities due to the past and future lay offs of employees with higher wages.

    Cons

    No job security at all. Also, Admissions Representative position is a telemarketing job (although they do try making it appear otherwise to prospective employees and students). Nothing that they promise you, such as raises, reviews, and employment agreements can be depended on in their current legal and financial struggles. They are all about numbers here, and although they have made substantial efforts to improve their agressive recruitment tactics and other areas of business, do not expect respect in or from any revenue-generating position with EDMC.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dont be decieved in thinking your job is secure.

    I worked at Education Management Corporation full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The fun young students are inspiring - that is why we teach!

    Cons

    No job security, no development for employees, tons of pressure on teachers to keep changing then there are more rules put in place and you have to change the curriculum all over again. This does not allow for the students to learn, when all the teachers are maxed out in their time and not able to really teach.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a screening and application program for entering students. Incorporate an esl program. Treat senior faculty with respect.
