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

Pros

The pay was considerably higher than most education organizations

Cons

Advice to Management

Find a way to make the cross functional team matrices work together, instead of against each other so grad teams are really working to a common goal.

    Pros

    Good location, always hiring, sometimes can be a friendly work environment, pay is relatively decent in this economy, young people working there

    Cons

    Too many to list, just look up for-profit education and learn that you will be selling $20 - $30k pieces of useless paper to poor people

    Advice to Management

    Don't treat your lower level employees like junk, I've never seen a place with such rude upper management, the dress code is ridiculously strict for no reason, it's an ONLINE university

  2. Micromanaged to Death

    Pros

    A lot of really nice people work at the ground level at EDMC.

    Cons

    This is by far the most disorganized organization I have ever worked for. The changes are daily and are rarely communicated correctly. The technology is outdated and the mistakes made that effect the students are numerous. The only thing that matters to this company is $$$ and numbers. They honestly don't care about the their students or employees.

    Advice to Management

    You have to spend money to make money and micromanaging your employees is demoralizing especially when there is no consistency in policies between departments that work together. An organization has to be organized and EDMC is so disorganized it will never succeed long term.
