Not much to gain from here

Student Finance Consultant (Current Employee) Chicago, IL

ProsExcellent benefits, great people to work with, lots of options for horizontal movement, plenty of locations to transfer to (Chicago area)

ConsVery micromanaged in finance department, constant changes (downsizing, moving to new locations), limited vertical movement, poor training (you rely more on the people who have been here a long time to teach you things than you do from trainers or managers)

Advice to Senior ManagementProvide better service to students by giving proper training to employees. As employees, we feel helpless and embarrassed that we can't offer more help to a student because training is so quick/generic and team leads don't know a lot of the answers. There is also poor communication between key departments, particularly finance and operations, which slows down how fast we can service students.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

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


    Pros: People at local campus level are great. Professors top notch. Cons: Corporate level micromanagement prevents local campuses doing what is best for that campus. Corporate layoff?
