Pros

met some nice people while working at EDMC. employees encourage themselves and try to keep it light eventhough we all knew of the big dark management cloud watching

Cons

the training seems to be HELP the students get an Education oriented while once you actually are out of the training it is al about the numbers. you are always worried to not meet the numbers because that means that you will be losing your job. its a constant stress of enroll students on the phone "cold call " style, some are weird some didnt even wanna go to school some are just cursing at you for calling in the first place. you need to get two students a week else well you might be next on the fired list. huge layoffs and huge lack of trust in management... spend the whole day on a phone was not worth it at all

Advice to Management

management needs to grow up they act like they are still in high school and all are out there to get you. there is no career opp. unless ur friends and buddies with management very high schoolish

    I feel consistently micromanaged and incapable of exercising my intellectual and creative freedom.

    Pros

    Health benefits and education benefits.

    Cons

    Corporate culture is disappointing, politics impedes progress or recourse against management who are paranoid of their own job security

    Advice to Management

    You hire some of the best talent out there, allow them the intellectual and creative freedom to do their job without being micromanaged or without being put in their place by managers who seem paranoid of protecting their own position...

    Pros

    Faculty have flexibility to set up their classes as they wish. They're not tied to teaching a standard program prescribed for every single campus as is the case at some other for-profit institutions.

    Cons

    Very low quality of students recruited. Faculty are expected to teach a greater load at this company than at any other institutions in the area.
