    I have been working at DeVry Education Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There is plenty of opportunity to develop new skills and increase your education level. Managers and HR are supportive of colleague development and encourage colleagues to own the development of their career.

    Cons

    There is plenty of opportunity to develop your skills but not as much opportunity to move up in every department. You can move across departments and institutions though, you just need to put yourself out there and take on extra projects so others can see the value you bring. Be a Do-er.

    Advice to Management

    Stay focused on creating value, flex work and developmental opportunities in order to engage your colleagues even when there are no promotional opportunities. Leaders need to be more connected with their departments and lead by example.

    Pros

    DeVry is a great place to work. Management is highly engaged to ensure that the student's best interest is at heart. The company strives to create a culture where all colleagues have the opportunity to grow if they put the effort forth. Lastly, I appreciate DeVry's commitment to operating in a manner that goes beyond compliance. DeVry works to create an environment where colleagues work in an ethical manner not by mandate, but by choice.

    Cons

    While the company works hard to innovate and keep ahead of the curve, there can be more emphasis placed on being a company that leads the charge - not follows.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to solicit feedback and then communicate that we as colleagues are heard.

    I have been working at DeVry Education Group full-time

    Pros

    The culture is to TEACH. Inside or outside of the classroom, our colleagues strive to better each other by providing constructive feedback. Our culture is to promote growth from within. I love the fact that roles offer telecommute options. I believe this improves the work-life balance. Our upper management team interacts with colleagues and approachable.

    Cons

    There can be personal cons. Management styles may not always mesh well and this is due to differences in personalities and should not reflect of the organization. I personally do not have any cons working for DEG.

    Advice to Management

    Manager-colleague relationships is the first bond when starting at any organization. Managers and colleagues should strive to keep a positive spin on the use of our open door policy. Colleagues should have confidence in the ability to speak with their manager and vice versa. Positive engagement ensure less turn over of phenomenal colleagues.
