Pros

I 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.

Cons

Upper 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 Management

Put students first in all decisions!

    Pros

    Great company to work for!! The Academic Counseling management and teams are phenomenal. I like that there are opportunities for advancement. Whenever an internal position is available it is announced and EDMC does a great job in training their employees on changes whenever changes happen.

    Cons

    Admission Representatives have salaries that are way higher than Academic Counselors; however Academic Counselors are required to have a Bachelors degree and assume more responsibility. I believe that an emphasis on the importance of an Academic Counselor is undervalued. However the position is less stressful and a lower salary for reduced stress I can agree with. Great Academic Team and management offset the cons.
