    I have been working at DeVry Education Group full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I started my career at DeVry Education Group 10+ years ago in an entry-level Admissions role and have advanced through several leadership roles within that department and recently transitioned to a leadership role in Operations. With this experience and tenure in mind, I believe I am well-qualified to speak to the array of career development tools and opportunities DeVry Education Group (DVG) provides for colleagues who are willing to work hard, embrace DeVry’s values, earn the trust of their superiors and seize opportunities when they arise. One of the pros of this organization is the number of entry-level opportunities available to those looking to start a career with potential for growth. As an educational institution, DeVry believes in its ability to train and develop its colleagues for a particular role and future career development. Therefore, the focus in hiring for these roles is more on identifying the right people & personalities for the culture, and a little bit less on prior resume experience and skills. This makes DVG an excellent option for career launchers or changers who are looking to prove themselves and develop long-term career skills. Adding to that, leadership throughout DVG highly encourages colleagues to take advantage of the Colleague Tuition Benefit Plan to earn their Bachelor's or Master's degree(s) at very little cost to the colleague, and to enroll in our internal training courses through the DeVry Leadership Center to learn more specialized skills. In addition to formal education and training programs, I have seen this organization effectively use stretch assignments and formal /informal mentors to help colleagues develop skills for career enhancement. That being said, each colleague has to take ownership for their development and seek out these opportunities in order to get the most out of the resources at their disposal. Another pro is that this organization offers competitive compensation and benefits, as evidenced by low attrition rates throughout the divisions I have worked in. Additionally, the medical, dental, vacation, 401k (with employer match), and many other benefits are available on day one of employment. Overall, I have a long list of positive experiences, but the most important to me is the quality of people I have had the opportunity to work with throughout my time here. Like any organization of this size, not every colleague I’ve worked with here is highly engaged, but on the whole, I have always been impressed with how positive and dedicated the vast majority of colleagues are who I have the opportunity to work with in this organization. The people I work with every day are ultimately what keeps me coming back year in and year out.

    Cons

    Of course, not every aspect of working at DeVry is perfect. We are in the midst of the one of the most challenging economic periods the education sector has ever experienced. Enrollment in post-secondary education is down across the US, due in part to the ongoing lack of confidence in our country's jobs outlook and slow economic recovery. The declining enrollments have resulted in a number of targeted staff reductions throughout DVG that have led to some concerns about job security. This however, is not a unique challenge to DeVry or even to the Education sector as a whole right now, and DVG has worked hard to minimize these reductions and to provide solid severance plans for those impacted. DeVry Education Group as a whole remains financially strong and well-diversified, so I am confident about the long-term prospects for this organization. Another con that sometimes gets mentioned by colleagues is that it can feel like promotions and career development opportunities don’t always happen as quickly as people would like. Admittedly, the staff reductions over the past few years, along with the previously mentioned high number of entry-level roles, means there are a lot of colleagues competing for a limited number of leadership roles. So to the extent that for some people, there is a lack of promotion opportunities, I can't dispute that statement. But what I do take exception is to the part about a lack of development opportunities. Having worked my way up, I can relate to the challenges of working every day to get recognition and promotion consideration. But I also recognize that all opportunities are earned by achieving sustained results in whatever role you are currently in. There is a real focus on results at DeVry. Some colleagues want to run before they can walk and expect that meeting basic expectations should result in annual promotions and increased responsibility. In truth, the people who are first in line for promotions in this organization (and any good one) are the ones who have consistently delivered results above expectations and who have learned how to support their manager and help them meet and exceed their goals. The point is, they exceed expectations in their daily role, which affords them the opportunity to take on more responsibility, which in turn helps prepare them for promotional opportunities. Again, this is a large organization, so there are definitely opportunities for improvement in every department. Yet this is why the organization utilizes and puts a lot of stock into our colleague engagement surveys twice each year. I have personally seen the organization implement a number of new colleague-centric policies and practices directly in response to the feedback on these surveys, such as the expansion of flex-work arrangements and improved colleague communication strategies like our quarterly town hall meetings. I have seen first-hand how DeVry is willing to continuously improve based on the feedback of its colleagues, which makes it an organization where I want to continue my career.

    Advice to Management

    Continue listening to and working to implement the feedback of your colleagues.
