    Pros

    The company culture centered around the TEACH values is truly a tangible element of the positive "vibe" at the company.

    Cons

    We get in our own way sometimes, we have way too many meetings, are title conscious at the risk of not making decisions and in general are risk adverse. I want to see more BIG ideas.

    Advice to Management

    Run with a BIG idea and get everyone involved.

    I have been working at DeVry Education Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Challenging and interesting projects are readily available and there are plenty of stretch assignments given in my area. This gives people room to grow within their role and through interim assignments and promotion. Overall, I believe the organization does a pretty good job differentiating high performers via performance management, pay, and career growth opportunities. Is there room to improve in that area, absolutely. But I think they are doing their best under the circumstances. Upper management, for the most part, seems to truly believe in the mission and values of the organization. Communication to employees is balanced between optimism about the future and caution related to the current challenges in our industry. Culture is a trendy buzzword in business these days, but it is something the organization is really starting to focus on and I am interested in seeing where it goes. I believe the culture was already relatively strong here, but consistent application can take it to a new level.

    Cons

    The organization can do a better job of discussing expected or desired career paths with employees...from both the employee's and organization's perspective. Up to this point in my career here, I am unclear as to what potential plans the organization has for me and how that might fit into my career goals. Growing pay outside of the normal review cycle seems to be easier under some leaders than others.

    Advice to Management

    Explicitly communicate succession plans and drive consistency in the actions of you and your teams, particularly as you roll out any new culture initiatives.

    I have been working at DeVry Education Group full-time

    Pros

    - Very ethical organization for the education industry - A lot of internal programs geared towards the employee included flex work hours and remote employment possibilities - solid employee benefits - strong opportunity to grow beyond the individual employing institution and out into other schools within the corporation's portfolio - Fair pay that is based on industry and location analysis - strong belief in a culture that puts the student (customer) first

    Cons

    - Culture can tends to be on the cynical side when times are tough - Depending on the institution within the organizations portfolio, management hierarchy can be top heavy

    Advice to Management

    Continue to try and improve culture with the addition of more social programs that have interaction amongst employees

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

    Pros

    DeVry Education Group promotes a great work-life balance allowing flexible schedules, remote work, and healthy living initiatives. The company has good top-down communication and rewards colleagues effectively to recognize achievements, contributions, and the meeting of goals.

    Cons

    DeVry Education Group could have a higher baseline salary for colleagues, but they make up for it with flexible scheduling benefits. Communication between departments can be improved as well as increased technical support for remote colleagues.

    Advice to Management

    Continued efforts with providing flexible schedules for colleagues is essential. Increased channels of communications between departments on higher level projects would also be beneficial. Colleagues on the ground floor should be asked to provide thoughts on possible impacts that higher level management might not consider for some big decisions. Additionally, providing colleagues with additional healthy living incentives such as discounted or supported race registrations and healthier cafeteria options would be appreciated and could even help lower insurance costs. Overall, DeVry Education Group is a great company to work for.
