Current Employee - Admissions Manager in Pittsburgh, PA (US)

Pros

Benefits, 401k, work with some great people, make a lot of good friendships

Cons

DOA's and above are truly horrible human beings. They treat lower level management and staff level like dirt, they have no problem telling you that you are expendable. Admissions department hasn't hit a plan in over a year, yet this gets blamed on everyone but those in charge. If you not part of the "circle of trust/evil" you are thrown to the wolves. Overworked, severely underpaid, no hope of any raises this year, told if you don't like it you can leave. Director of Financial Aid has no degree and doesn't even attempt to take free classes. Male DOA's use position for leverage for sec.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop blaming your underpaid staff level and start making changes in middle and upper management. Get a CEO who is not a crook. Show some respect in quality of education not quantity

    Pros

    Good health insurance for full time employees, matching 401K benefit.

    Cons

    At EDMC you work at will, their will, exclusively, no contracts. Because the shareholders are first in line, students and academics are an after-thought. Admissions and advertising has higher budget than academics. If you are a educator, stay away. EDMC is not a place you want on your resume.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Read your own mission statement. IT's about education, not how much cash you can pull out of the schools. Provide a good product and promotion is easy; you won't need the high pressure admission tactics and you will find a much better student is attracted to your schools.
