    Pros

    Health benefits, tuition benefits. Flexwork has been introduced, including telework. Recent culture changes seem to be a step in right direction.

    Cons

    Latest changes in restructure poorly communicated. Lack of transparency with the future state of DeVry University has broken trust of loyal employees.

    Advice to Management

    Shoot straight with your employees rather than sugar-coat changes. It diminishes the trust that your long-term employees have built up through the years. Makes it seem like no one has a shared vision, and that leadership is not on the same page. Share information instead of allowing the rumor mill to swirl. Don't drop the ball on implementing the culture changing initiatives. Get everyone at all levels involved, don't just train your leaders.

    I worked at DeVry Education Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Was once a great place. Flex work and helping students is great. Lots of people truly care about student success.

    Cons

    Awful leadership now especially in IT. No focus on people anymore just on the CIO looking good to upper management with bogus made up metrics. Sad... Very sad

    Advice to Management

    Try to keep people that really care rather than smooth talkers that produce nothing and hire people to just agree and go along.

    Pros

    Excellent compensation, good team and work ethics...

    Cons

    superficial senor leadership... poor vision, lack of commitment to work- life balance, remote work,

    Advice to Management

    trying to build a culture of care? After you destroyed active and vibrant cultures that existed within the organizations you acquired? Leadership needs to fundamentally change, get close to students? We WERE close to students. Culture change BEGINS with acknowledging the differences in organization structure and philosophy. Not arbitrarily forcing integrations in the name of COST SAVINGS!
