EDMC was an overly micromanaged, unpleasant work environment.

    The middle management only cares about numbers and recruiting students, even if they are not interested in the programs

    Pros

    There are a good deal of good people with whom I've developed lasting friendships.
    ADA's have the potential to make a lot of money.

    Cons

    It's sales driven, which does not necessarily lend itself to education
    The sales and education sides do not work well together
    The ADA's are only worried about numbers and recruiting rather than retention
    Middle management is often a joke
    Leads are given to favorite ADA's
    They are also given to top performing ADA's, which makes it difficult for new or others ADA's to perform well

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect the ADA's and the organization by fostering an environment that supports education, retaining students and the promotion of completing a full degree rather than getting people to apply and complete one class.

    Pros

    It's a job. Private cubicles so you don't get messed with to much. You and your immediate family can go to an EDMC school for any degree and it's free.

    Cons

    Crappy hours, forced overtime and Saturday's scheduled with no notice. Older reps make double and do very little. No leadership. No real training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You've got some pretty good and smart people workinh there. A lot have left. Take care of those remaining. A kind word, recognition or a little praise go a long way.
