Pros

I have some great co-workers, though they're all jumping ship at record rates.

Cons

No room for growth. Despite some other reviews, pay is only somewhat comparable to other higher ed institutions. People are quitting quickly, yet no rehires so work is piling up. Overwhelming to say the least.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Your staff can't help your students if they're buried in paperwork continuously. A staff never feeling like they're caught up is NOT GOOD! You will continue to lose really good people who are really good at what they will do. Other companies will value their contributions.

    Pros

    I work with Great employees/friends.

    Cons

    I’ve never been associated with a company with such HORRIBLE upper-level management (president, directors, deans). The president has no trust in the employees and always chooses to hire outside of company for higher level positions. Also, makes sure that everyone’s annual review is coded as “still developing” so no promotions could be asked for or raises given. There are employees who have been here for years and their annual review shows as “still developing”…Really?

    The Directors idea of management is applying scare tactics. They want to break you down and make you feel like you’re not good enough. They do this so they could have some type of “control” over you. Nothing positive about your performance comes out of a directors mouth, not even if you’re short of amazing.

    There is no job security and are consistent annual layoffs in July. Typically, the ones getting laid off are the ones with a higher salary, so even if you got a promotion, you would eventually be let go. In addition, The company closed down over 40+ locations in the past few month and is not looking good.

     Past 2 months at my location:

    Just to give you an idea of what’s been going on. We went from 4 directors of admissions to 1, 3 admissions reps were let go, 1 dean has resigned, 3 success coaches resigned all in 1 week, 1 student finance consultant resigned, and the student central manager has resigned also.

    ***PAST 2 MONTHS!

    Stay FAR away from this company because other companies do not even respect someone with Devry on their resume (even with attending a top university).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Though you may have "control" you have zero loyalty. Employees across the line have nothing positive to say about higher level managers. Treat people with respect and show that you care about their careers.
