Completely Disorganized with a Bleak Outlook

Finance/Enrollment Manager (Former Employee)
Pittsburgh, PA (US)

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

ProsFringe benefits were great, and the internal cultural was nice

Cons100% disorganized, unrealistic expectations for position responsibilities, and the work environment/duties changed so often that performing is nearly impossible

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

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Pros: Benefits, 401k, work with some great people, make a lot… Cons: DOA's and above are truly horrible human beings.
