Not my favorite company....
ADMISSIONS ADVISOR (Former Employee), Chicago, ILNovember 20, 2013
The environment here was great. Managers were diligent in keeping the sales team lifted by breaking up the day with fun games and competitions. However, the ethics of the company is questionable. The lying that was taking place between advisors and students was unmatched and very uncomfortable.

Desktop Support & Front Office Assistant (Former Employee), Fort worth, TXNovember 11, 2013
I LOVED WORKING FOR DEVRY. THE STAFF IN 2009 WERE THE BEST COWORKERS I HAVE EVER HAD THE PRIVILEDGE TO WORK WITH. ALL THE WAY FROM THE STUDENT WORKERS TO THE DEAN OF THE SCHOOL, EVERYONE WAS VERY FRIENDLY, EASY TO GET ALONG WITH, AND ONE BIG FAMILY. I MISS WORKING FOR THE PEOPLE WHO WERE THERE IN 2009. THE ONLY REASON I LEFT WAS BECAUSE EVERYONE WHO – more... WAS THERE WENT TO WORK SOMEWHERE ELSE AND THE NEW EMPLOYEES WERE RUDE AND IMPERSONAL. I EVEN TRANSFERRED MY CLASSES TO IRVING SINCE THE OFFICE MANAGEMENT AT FORT WORTH NEVER SEEM TO BE ABLE TO HELP STUDENTS WITH THEIR SCHEDULES OR ISSUES. – less

Great company to work for but the management leaves much to be desired.
Inquiry Generation Coordinator (Former Employee), Downers Grove, ILNovember 11, 2013
Pros: great pay, flexible work schedule, great work environment
Cons: not many opportunities for advancement, and the opportunities that do exist are not always fairly presented to all employees.
Creating a career path for employees was a point of emphasis for the last two years that I worked at DeVry unfortunately this never happened. The work environment and employees are great but the workload and poor management out weigh the great benefits provided by this company

Overall a good place to work
Financial Literacy Consultant III (Current Employee), Addison, ILNovember 6, 2013
Pros: security
Cons: limited advancement
A typical day at work begins with outreach calls to students who are required to complete Exit Counseling due to Graduating, withdrawn below half time status or drop from school. This is an opportunity to education and better prepare Federal Stafford loan borrowers about student loan repayment options and process prior to repayment.

DeVry is a place – more... for change. I’ve learned well how to adapt to change and readjust quickly when necessary. This abled me to learn quicker and stay on top of things. The Management style is securely micro managed for the call center environment. However, more loosely in other department that are not required to communicate with students.

DeVry is mostly a friendly environment with all colleagues and management working together to complete one goal.
The hardest part of the job is keeping momentum at times where there aren’t any advancement for growth. – less

Flexible Work Environment/Challenging but Rewarding
College Algebra Tutor (Current Employee), Cherry hill, NJNovember 4, 2013
Pros: flexible hours
Cons: not enough hours
When not tutoring inside the classroom, I had freedom to schedule hours that were accommodating to my students which was nice because most worked day time jobs and were not able to make afternoon tutoring hours. The job was challenging because all students were on different levels and learned at different paces but the curriculum and entire course was – more... done online so traditional ways of teaching were out. The classroom was comprised of individuals ranging from young adults to seasoned professionals so finding something that works for one person is completely different from the next. None the less, with any teaching job, seeing the moment that it "clicks" for someone is the most rewarding. – less

Good Company to work for!
Tutor (Former Employee), Indianapolis, INOctober 29, 2013
Pros: helping other students
Cons: lots of idle time
Students are not always available to tutor, so leaves time available for other activities. Learned how challenging it is sometimes to tutor students who don't have the same knowledge as oneself. Hardest part was trying to keep busy with so few students. Most enjoyable part of the job was knowing you helped someone through a tough assignment academically.

Career Advisor (Former Employee), CAOctober 9, 2013
Pros: colleagues are like family
Cons: management more concerned about #'s than employees and have verbally made it clear
Good employer to start a legitimate sales career with and good benefits, but very limited or often no room for advancement. Good starting salaries, but raises are nothing to brag about.

DeVry University - Online
Director of Admissions (Current Employee), Orlando, FLOctober 8, 2013
Cons: no movement or promotions, poor leadership, low morale
Management is completely inept. Little to no leadership, with a management style that changed direction more than a video game. No advancement at all. Basically, a cubicle nightmare of epic proportions. People are miserable, especially in Orlando. Stay far away.

This company is very much into training and will not allow you to do your job until they are satisfied. Strong management but can be a bit into micro-managing.

Associate Director of Admissions (Former Employee), Oakland, CAOctober 1, 2013
DeVry is a good university and definitely treats their students with respect. Metro leadership definitely needs to have a better understanding of the needs of their employees and to take a better approach at work/life balancing.
