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.

    Terrible company to work for.

    Pros

    Lot of overtime. work as much as you can but have no personal life.

    Cons

    Extremely poor management. Every thing is top notch secret from the employee including their health benefit

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be clear with your employees about what's coming even new system being introduced instead of just dropping changes 10 times a day and no advance notice. it is insane.

    I have been working at DeVry University

    Pros

    It used to be a good company to work for.

    Cons

    Company doesn't schedule classes consistently, as in the past. You used to be able to plan your teaching schedules several terms into the future. Today, classes are assigned a week ahead of the start of the term.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company seems to not have adequate direction, especially in the online environment. Pay rates haven't changed lately, and frankly, they can't really get their act together.
