Very redundant work, with no real incentives to advance.

Pros

Good work-life balance. Good benefits, especially if you are looking to go to school. After 6 months of employment DeVry will cover 100% of your tuition and 90% of a dependents tuition.

Cons

Very redundant work. Management tries to run the business as if it were a commission paying position which wouldn't be bad if it were a commission position but it is not. There is no incentive, but all of the pressure to perform. Many of the managers have very poor management skills, and since they are younger with no prior management experience, they tend to micro-manage, and do not know how to truly motivate their staff.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Come up with some real incentives for performing well, and do a better job of vetting potential Assistant Directors. Do not promote Assistant Directors based on the number of students they register, but on the management, and leadership abilities that they posses.

    Pros

    The company has amazing benefits and strives to be the best in the industry. I believe that the professionals at DeVry truly care about their students. They are incredibly passionate and want to make a difference. The best part about working here is that incredible student that you encounter that completely changes your life.

    Cons

    The media has not been kind to the for-profit industry the last few years. With as much effort as the company tries to be a step ahead of bad press, they seem to still get lumped into the same bucket as the rest.
