    Pros

    Culture, diversity, flexibility, social impact, care, career opportunities, etc.

    I worked at Adtalem Global Education full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good work Life Balance and PTO policy.

    Cons

    Upper management turns a blind eye to middle management. Immature managers and their stunted knowledge of actual HR information created less opportunities to grow and evolve in your career. Cattiness and politics generated a work environment that was centered on sucking up to upper management/execs instead of being good at your job. It was unfortunate that a great team disintegrated under terrible management.

    Pros

    Flexible timings and remote work available if you need it.

    Cons

    There is too much politics and too much churn rate of the employees. There are more directors and as such too many decision makers than team members to actually finish the tasks on hand.

    Pros

    I have had a very positive experience so far. My leaders over the years have helped me develop my skills and grow in my career. With hard work, patience and a little resilience I have had opportunities to work on a variety of projects and stretch assignments . Additionally, during this Coronavirus Pandemic, leaders have been so understanding, helpful and allowed employees to work from home. I felt that the organize was somewhat prepared and have done a great job communicating to colleagues about updates, work from home expectations/tips and even some funny communications about working with kids/family at home. Their response shows that they truly care.

    Cons

    Over the past several years, there has been a lot of changes! I think the changes are for the best and that we are heading in the right direction but some of them were not well organized/planned. At times I feel like we are a little too reactive and need to be more proactive. Some employees and departments don't have the sense of urgency that is needed in today's workforce.

    Pros

    Nice people that truly care but are not employing the right .leaders

    Cons

    We recently sent a plane to rescue our students and bring them back to the US. Why so late.? You put our students and faculty at risk. In speaking to other Safety leaders of other companies in Chicagoland, they took these actions with their employees in February. The Security leaders flew down and out with the plane but was not caring at all. The students and others came back and mentioned how terrible their safety conditions were on the island and how their calls to the security and safety teams on the island and Downers Grove were ignored. Pretty App but useless when the people at the other end have no clue or concern. They have been bragging about going down. Political grand standing! I work here but would never want my kids to attend classes at our campuses because of the poor safety and security of our teams.
