Good place to be an instructor

Instructor (Former Employee)
San Bernardino, CA

ProsI felt like I genuinely impacted the lives of my students. I had the freedom to introduce new material so that my classes were always up to date with the industry. Position is very autonomous, and other than class time and a few meetings you are free to craft your own schedule as you see fit.

ConsUpper management in EDMC was constantly pursuing various forms of accreditation, sometimes at the expense of the students (creating unrealistic barriers, such as advanced degrees for all instructors, in what is effectively a trade school). Student recruiting practices are occasionally ethically bankrupt.

Advice to Senior ManagementPut students first in all decisions!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    A reactive organization, made up of former University of Phoenix executives, that can not think ahead of the curve.
