    DeVry Education group always has a great opportunities for those looking for growth in their careers or a great place to start one. New Management seems to understand the importance of improving the quality of the reputation of the education sector in America.

    Pay when moving to other positions sometimes isn't commensurate with those who are able to come from the outside to negotiate.

    Advice to Management

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

    Leadership far above even the team supervisors have a very myopic viewpoint when it comes to the business, so change is slow and often in the wrong direction.

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

    Pros

    Some people there are kind, nice, etc.

    Cons

    Many people are unkind...I assume it's because everyone is worried for their jobs due to multiple rounds of layoffs each year. There have been multiple strategy changes which impacts goals and objectives and needing to identify realignment every couple months. Management has no clear vision for future, it's only what will make enrollments now.
    You can get high performance review ratings and never get promoted.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the departments and what the teams are telling you. They have shared insight but it seems to constantly fall on deaf ears.

    I worked at DeVry Education Group full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Benefits were good. Some people cared about your well being and success.

    Cons

    I worked for DVG for 13 years and was very under paid, overworked and disrespected. I was informed I was not even making the min for my pay grade. They did nothing to bring me to where I needed to be. Management and hr was very unprofessional when discussing advancement opportunities. Had to work tons of OT to try and meet objectives at the sacrifice of spending time with my child.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up and realize the amount of work is too much for the staff the budget allows. Evaluate your HR policies that are not followed. There is a lot of favoritism going on. Evaluate how your managers are treating people since it is unprofessional especially to discuss individual performance at a department meeting.
