EDMC needs to train their managers and their people better. Managers run around like chickens with their head cut off. Insist on more support and better training from the top.

    Pros

    Tuition assistance programs, benefits, good work atmosphere

    Cons

    Too large of an organization-- I felt that my accomplishments were praised at a local-level, but the board of directors and management team at a corporate-level were only focused on the bottom line. Projected growth was decided at a national-level without taking the time to research the local market, resulting in frustrated employees, low morale and high turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to feedback from employees-- people want to be part of something great and will be motivated to work harder if they feel they are being listened to. Having over-worked employees, who feel the goals they are working towards are not achievable, results in those employees going out in the community and speaking negatively about their work environment.
