Upper Management will sell their Grandmother if it means they can make a buck or advance

Admissions Manager (Current Employee) Pittsburgh, PA (US)

ProsBenefits, 401k, work with some great people, make a lot of good friendships

ConsDOA's and above are truly horrible human beings. They treat lower level management and staff level like dirt, they have no problem telling you that you are expendable. Admissions department hasn't hit a plan in over a year, yet this gets blamed on everyone but those in charge. If you not part of the "circle of trust/evil" you are thrown to the wolves. Overworked, severely underpaid, no hope of any raises this year, told if you don't like it you can leave. Director of Financial Aid has no degree and doesn't even attempt to take free classes. Male DOA's use position for leverage for sec.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop blaming your underpaid staff level and start making changes in middle and upper management. Get a CEO who is not a crook. Show some respect in quality of education not quantity

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

    Beware EDMC and Goldman Sachs

    Academic Director (Current Employee)

    I have been working at Education Management Corporation full-time for more than 3 years


    Pros: Good health insurance for full time employees, matching 401K benefit. Cons: At EDMC you work at will, their will, exclusively, no contracts. Because the shareholders are first in line, students and academics are an after-thought. Admissions… Advice to Senior Management: Read your own mission statement. IT's about education, not how much cash you can pull out of the schools. Provide a good product… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
