    Pros

    I really like the people I work with in my role in a call center environment. Room for growth in the many Chicagoland locations.

    Cons

    System of employee development plan completion/evaluation exists but it not given adequate focus. The employee needs to take control of this process if he/she wants career growth within the company.

    Heading on the right path, keep up in this direction

    I have been working at DeVry Education Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Very collaborative culture; mission driven; nice work life balance; suppportive HR leadership; high standards.

    DeVry is in a time of change however this change is good. We are adapting to a changing environment and in doing so, staying relevant. We are using new technologies which create effeciancies. Students need these changes.

    Yes, some change is hard but ultimately change is good and required. Some folks have a harder time understanding the need and reasons behind the change. If we didn't change, we wouldn't exist, plan and simple.

    Cons

    It would be nice to have a jeans day more often. :-)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep communicating; change is necessary and welcomed when communicated correctly

    I have been working at DeVry Education Group

    Pros

    work from home, make own schedule, no manager breathing down your neck ever, well respected company within its field, opportunities for advancement, they pay for everything that you need

    Cons

    Collaboration is difficult due to everyone working at home, team support is minimal, all training is by phone only, training was a very difficult process, must store all materials at home which is many many boxes

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Different approach to training new employees, more frequent feedback about performance, more training in person by more experienced employees through modeling business strategies.

    DeVry Online- a great place to teach!

    Current Employee - Online Adjunct Faculty
    Current Employee - Online Adjunct Faculty

    I have been working at DeVry Education Group

    Pros

    DeVry Online- I teach for DVUO as an adjunct (contractor) and have had nothing but good experiences with them. They pay higher than most for online teaching and have very good support systems in place and training for faculty. The new faculty training is the best I've seen. Faculty managers are supportive and back their faculty members, yet keep the students' fairness in mind. For instance, if plagiarism or other academic violations occur DVUO takes action. They may be a "for profit" institution but they *do* have high academic standards. I would recommend other online instructors to DeVry (although it's a lot harder to "get in" now than it was a few years ago due to the explosion of competition).

    Cons

    Maybe a bit more personalized recognition for the top-notch faculty members. I also hear rumblings on the faculty conference calls about it having been several years since pay was increased for adjuncts. We also hear "compliants" about lifting the credit hour teaching limit, but have been told it's being worked on. However, it seems to be taking quite a while so it would be nice if there was some progress on this one. Overall, though, DVUO is a wonderful place to teach.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe do anonymous feedback surveys from the adjuncts to hear more about concerns/suggestions and implement ideas to the extent possible. There are many talented instructors out there who will probably have some great ideas!!
