    Pros

    The Dean I worked for was awesome. He gave great advice and was extremely supportive during my time there.

    Cons

    There were not very many cons except for that whiteboard--it was a wall painted with paint that turned it into a whiteboard of sorts. The board was quite difficult/impossible to erase.

    Pros

    Passionate colleagues and love the company values. There are so many "for-profit" schools who only seem to care about getting students in the door. Trust me, I've worked at them. But DeVry really cares about making the right decisions for the student- not just the bottom line.

    Cons

    Hours/working weekends can be tough but everyone is required to make the same sacrifices (including management) so at least we are all in it together

  6. great entry level opportunity.

    Pros

    The people I worked with were fantastic and they also had a good training program. Chris Vock was great. Seems like they do have a solid path to growth with the company Academic advisor I, II, III, team lead, supervisor etc. The only reason I left was due to relocating across the country, but I still keep my eyes open for any job openings at DeVry in NC.

    Cons

    I worked at the Naperville Call Center, and it does get slightly repetitive. You have at least a few calls each day that the students are VERY angry and will cuss at you.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to push towards the 'work from home' goal.
