    Pros

    One of the best company's I've worked for. They always strive to do the right thing for their students and employees. Great leadership and they do their best to make sure new hires are a good fit for the company.

    Cons

    The industry as a whole is under a lot of scrutiny. DeVry University and parent company (DeVry Education Group) are going above and beyond industry standard adherence to all government regulations and compliance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work.

    Pros

    It was a pleasure to work here at the Miami Campus. The dean and his staff made me feel part of their team while my position was long term temporary thru an agency. During this time I had the opportunity to work different duties while I assisted the Operations Support Coordinator. I enjoyed it very much.

    Cons

    My position was long term temporary thru a agency; therefore, I was not able to experience the benefits and pluses of being employed by the school directly.

    Pros

    As a student worker, I was able to meet most of the faculty and employees on campus. Networking through them, I was able to interview with many other different companies and land a great job.

    Cons

    The school has made major cutbacks, failed at addressing enrollment and graduate rates, and are not able to meet the students' needs. (They are constantly adjusting which has helped to an extent)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay in tune with outside communities and markets, so the school never falls behind.

    Pros

    I am truly impressed with the values and level of quality service provided at the KC, MO campus. Awesome!

    Cons

    I didn't experience any negatives. I only worked on a part-time basis, so I was not entitled to benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue with the level of quality leadership at your campus! I think that other DeVry campuses should emulate that of the KC campus.

    Pros

    The balancing of work and school life was the amazing part about this job, and sometimes one helped the other.

    Cons

    My only downside for this job was having a long 45 minute drive, but that is not always the case depending on where you live.
