Pros

Company is a much better place to work than I expected. People are smart and care about the educational mission. There is significant opportunity at EDMC for those driven and willing to accept responsibility. The company desperately needs people who can execute and are committed to seeing things through. If that's you, there your options are vast.

Cons

Limited collaboration across business units or functional areas. There are strong personalities in senior/middle management who 'know what's best and to hell with the rest'. The company is moving toward data-driven decision making but needs strong advocates to push this along.

Advice to Management

To be successful the company needs to break down silos and encourage collaboration. There are too many line drawn between functional groups (IT and 'The Business') as well as the individual ed systems ('The Brands').

    Pros

    EDMC does pay well and offers a fair benefits package in most cases.

    Cons

    The industry is facing enormous issues, coming under scrutiny from the federal government. EDMC's priorities are profits, not students which can be a difficult moral dilemma for employees. In most cases, there is not room for growth or personal contribution to the company.

    Pros

    Ethical and talented group of employees. Time-off policies are employee friendly. Compensation was very competitive. The training was outstanding.

    Cons

    Work-life balance not ideal. Declining enrollment and increased competition from less-expensive online universities created widespread workforce reductions.

    Advice to Management

    True transparency throughout the organization should be key to employee engagement and talent management!
