    I have been working at DeVry Education Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very collaborative culture; mission driven; nice work life balance; suppportive HR leadership; high standards.

    DeVry is in a time of change however this change is good. We are adapting to a changing environment and in doing so, staying relevant. We are using new technologies which create effeciancies. Students need these changes.

    Yes, some change is hard but ultimately change is good and required. Some folks have a harder time understanding the need and reasons behind the change. If we didn't change, we wouldn't exist, plan and simple.

    Cons

    It would be nice to have a jeans day more often. :-)

    Advice to Management

    keep communicating; change is necessary and welcomed when communicated correctly
