Current Employee - Admissions Advisor II in Naperville, IL
Current Employee - Admissions Advisor II in Naperville, IL

I have been working at DeVry University full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

In short, Benefits are good (healthcare, dental, vision, 401K, Profit Sharing, etc.), Salary is more than competitive for the industry (starting 40-43K/year), Very valuable training and skill development in this position. Skills translate into: RECRUITING, SALES, MARKETING, CALL CENTER MANAGEMENT, ACCOUNT MANAGEMENT, HUMAN RESOURCES, BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT, etc.

Cons

Morale is somewhat negative. Many disgruntled colleagues because of lack of advancement opportunities. Hours can be inconvenient and schedules are particularly inflexible. 9-6 M-Th with 1 late night (10-8), out at 4 on Fridays, and one mandatory Saturday per month. Also, this job is very monotonous, 3 years in and the job responsibilities have not changed much.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Recognize leadership to promote to management rather than promoting recruiting talent. Just because someone recruits well does not mean that they are an effective leader.

    Pros

    Great work culture in that staff and faculty define what it means to work as a team.

    Cons

    School has a poor perception promblem in most cities. Quality of students are of a poor caliber which has effected the outcome of students getting hired. School has a tendency to offer too many training classes and too many meetings during the course of one's work week. Degree Programs that are being offered should be eliminated from course schedule in some areas if an industry in that area is not strong.
