Pros

Free education and good benefits. Other than having a job there are no real pros for this job. The pay is ok and it could be worse in this economy but I do not know many people that enjoy what they are doing

Cons

lack of communication, no accountibility from managment, lie about hours and job duties. Very high turnover rate. Long hours. The for-profit educational industry is haveing a really hard time in the current market. Enrollments are consistently declining, the education provided is a joke, and the cost to attend the school is outragious. Don't walk, run form ths company if you are looking at a job as an admissions advisor.

Advice to Management

Don't lie, we all know what is really happening. Do not treat us like children.

    Pros

    Good compensation and follow through from the middle level management. Location was also continent for city employees to access via public transportation.

    Cons

    Cost of education for first and second year students that could find less expensive tuition via community colleges made it a hard sell.

  2. A good company in a tough industry

    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.
