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

    Virtual faculty positions allow you to work from home and not have to be located at the Pittsburgh headquarters. This is probably the best part of the job

    Cons

    The faculty role is low paying. Despite your virtual location, salaries are based on Pittsburgh wages (which are very low). If you are, say from California or NYC, you will find you can't teach full time and afford to live.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company needs to focus on a quality level of students. The past few years the origination has become a haven for anyone who can sign on the dotted line and pay their tuition with a grant, student loan of military grant
