    Pros

    Flexibility when needed
    I like most coworkers
    Great benefits
    Great pay

    Cons

    Some people are unethical
    Some employees defraud the system
    Sometimes asked to work more than your fair share

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a firmer hand on some of your employees- they take advantage of you and make the job harder for their colleagues. Stop pushing enrollment numbers up- the economy has taken it's toll and we should focus on quality students getting a quality education, not just filling seats.

    Pros

    The benefits are great! PTO, tuition benefit, excellent benefits. They offer great programs to offer to the students. As a benefit you can attend any of the colleges owned by EDMC.

    Cons

    EDMC is a public company, with all the potential to have streamline communication/policy efforts, yet its the complete opposite is the reality. They change the corporate capitol policy, yet they don't communicate the change and then the campus is hit with a $31,000 expense line item due to the policy change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    How about actually listen to the campuses and implement policies that are company wide and ensure each campus is on the same corporate track. Stop laying off employees to save the bottom line, instead, how about implementing cost cutting measures and actually hold dept heads accountable for their financials. If they over spend, lay them off, not the positions that actually have an impact on the student experience. Such a poorly manage nation-wide organization. Typical left hand doesn't talk to the right hand scenario.
