    Pros

    A decent amount of time off, good benefit package, college classes paid. Many locations available to work.

    Cons

    Nepotism, poor management, inconsistency, different rules for different campuses, management doesn't listen to employees, favoritism, does not deliver on promises. Frequent layoffs, for profit colleges are all in trouble.

    Advice to Management

    Remember that this business would not be possible without the teachers.

    Pros

    The quality of the education is legit.

    Cons

    Massive gap between home office and Chicago. The operations side is horrible. Horrible management across the country.

    Advice to Management

    Same as always....realize no one ever tells the truth about things due to fear of losing job. You only hear what people know you want to hear. You are not hearing what you need to hear.


  3. Top campus management is unprofessional, rude and abrasive.

    Pros

    Training is great, as it is done through the corporate office. The pay was quite competitive.

    Cons

    Top campus management is run out of fear. The best employees are long gone. The campus is down to a skeleton crew. They are miserable and completely stressed out.

    Advice to Management

    Check yourself. You've wrecked the campus with your abrasive, harsh, fear based management style. You've run us all off. We liked our jobs, but your style didn't work for us.

    Pros

    Major holidays off and good working hours. The people that you work with are great too.

    Cons

    No job stability they have laid off and eliminated a lot of positions since I started, they don't assist with development. I was told that management doesn't do much and it is true.

    Pros

    Interested in current technologies - and attempted focus on process.

    Cons

    1. One of the more dysfunctional teams I've ever worked with.
    2. Teamwork is a foreign concept to this group.
    3. The leadership team fosters an environment of distrust.
    4. Lack of ability to set priorities - "everything is a No. 1" priority.
    5. Enrollments trending down lead to less funding and staff...more work for those left.

    Advice to Management

    Work at fostering teamwork and identify the true business priorities for the teams to work on. Clear achievable project identification will yield great results.

    Pros

    Company policies are employee friendly.

    Cons

    Stay away from QA department in IT. No matter how hard and smart you work, either you will be forced to leave or they will fire you for ridiculous reasons. Terri Bogar's micromanagement will suffocate any person working under her.

    Overall there is a lot of attrition in IT.

    Advice to Management

    Many QA Analysts either left or were fired in a row but Management doesn't seem to be taking any interest in finding out why. Please look into the department closely as to why people who worked for 10 years in other departments of Devry couldn't continue in QA for few months.

    Employees leave Managers not companies.

    Pros

    There is a 2 month training process to start your position. You learn alot and the trainers are fantastic.

    There IS room for growth, all of my managers, supervisors and trainers were all previous SSA's.
    If you are fresh out of college or entering the job field after a while, I recommend this place. If you can stick it out in the kind of environment that it is for a couple of years, you'll hopefully move up there.

    I ended up leaving for something that better fit my background and salary needs. No real negative feelings towards the place, it just wasn't my style.

    Cons

    Be prepared to work many evenings. They say 2 nights a week until 9 but by the time I had started it was 3, and the nights I wasn't working until 9 I was working until well after 6pm.

    Be prepared to be managed very closely. There isn't a ton of freedom here

    Your numbers are important. Like it's all they focus on.

    Student Service Advisor position ended up just being an entry level call center position. Dealing alot with upset students about their balances or financial aid. It's not really what you think of when you think "Student advisor". It's more like your working in the finances dept of a university

    There is no communication between the trainers and supervisors. It leaves things really confusing for the employee.

    The application and interviewing process was very unorganized. It was several steps and took a significant amount of time to hear back after each step. They ended up only giving me about 3 days notice that I got the position. They were consistently saying they would call me at a certain time and then not call for days after. They rarely responded to phone calls or emails.
