    Pros

    Company is flexible. Has flex work options.

    Cons

    Absolutely nowhere to go. Kind of a dead end job and they expect way too much out of you for what you get paid. Set ridiculous goals in order to get a promotion and the promotion amount is pretty pathetic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your own employees more and invest in them some before buying up all those schools trying to expand.

    I worked at DeVry Education Group

    Pros

    Company has fair business practices, strong benefits for employees and allows is working towards improvement for the students.

    Cons

    Leadership, outside of campus level, is lacking and out of touch with the needs of the campuses, students and employees. Leadership accepts mediocre performance and bad behavior of some and disposes of the truly talented to save a few.

    Pros

    Most campuses and home office is filled with great people who have great ideas. Aesthetically pleasing work environments. Great, albeit increasingly expensive benefit packages. Student-centered.

    Cons

    Since the business revenue is tied to the demand of post-secondary education seekers, plans, budgets and people are often squashed when the demand dips. The company is also large and slow to change as the need arises.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Become more nimble with adapting to demand in this quickly changing and increasingly connected economy.
