    Pros

    Great place to acquire experience working within the adult learning education sector

    Cons

    Huge disconnect between upper level leadership (home office) and the employees representing the organization
    Lack of vision and/or inability to comunicate that vision to employees on the front lines

    Advice to Management

    At the local level- do the best you can to keep your team motivated by filtering the top down mandates. May improve long term?

    I worked at DeVry Education Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good place to start. there are also some knowledgeable people here.

    Cons

    Since new CEO, clearly focused on the bottom line, which in this case seems to be the stock prices. Teams have difficulty communicating which often cause issues for end users. Teams quick to pass the buck when something goes wrong.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on providing great service to end users and not cost per employee. Heed metrics and and advice from other teams and reports.

    I worked at DeVry Education Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Work from Home, Good benefits with the chance of purchasing more vacation time if you need it. Also a laidback environment as far as dress code.

    Cons

    Almost no chance of moving up in the company no matter how hard you might try. The company has a new CEO making some changes that almost doesn't make sense. Also it's the rounds of layoffs each year putting everyone on edge.

    Lacks direction. employees are manipulated to think company is in better financial standing than they are. Moral is down. No one knows when they will be asked to leave

    Pros

    Opportunities for continuous learning and cross-training. Opportunities for remote work, which is great for work-life balance. Starting salary is not too bad either.

    No room for advancement. There is no money there for realistic raises. Performance is also very subjective. Be prepared for inconsistencies.

    Stop putting up so many barriers to process improvements.

    Cons

    Management "dream" engineering fails for everyone and especially the student...

    Advice to Management

    Trust your engineers
