I worked at DeVry University full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

My team at that time and helping student find financial resources that would help assist in their education

Cons

Consist frictions between academic, registrar and admission. It seemed as if everyone wanted to pass the buck and not take responsibility. In addition, people were starting to do things because it was coming so driven by admission and getting student enrolled and not helping or considered with if Devry was the right fit for that student.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus on quality and not dollar signs!

    Pros

    Starting pay is decent for the market.

    Cons

    Where do you begin?
    Poor working environment
    Micromanagement
    Educational facilities and equipment outdated and needs replaced
    Arcane policies
    Lip service to education but the truth is just put a but in the seat so we get paid
    No advancement opportunities
    Your input is not desired or needed because we will do it our way even if it is wrong
    It seems everyone is looking for another job during the entire time while employed at DeVry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The for profit model is broken and needs repaired. Please look into hiring individuals that can make cogent calls moving forward.
