      Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

      I worked at DeVry University full-time

      Pros

      Coworkers, location, celebrations, always something new to learn

      Cons

      Manager is not flexible, flexwork only available to certain people, micromanaging. No variety to move up.

      Advice to Management

      The hours of operation do not match the traffic of students. Saturday work is not necessary or worth 3 calls a day. Calling systems are out of date with constant errors for a tech school.

        Negative Outlook
        No opinion of CEO

        I worked at DeVry University full-time

        Pros

        Remote work- Which can be removed in you don't report positive numbers Great Vacation/ Time off - If you can get the days off you want in advance

        Cons

        Overworked Numbers game Business mentality Not student and education focused Rush students through admission process and set up to fail Expensive for the student treatment High student turnover rate Micro-management, denial of unemployment benefits Campuses constantly closing

        Advice to Management

        I worked at DeVry University for two years and the first 6 months was okay. However doesn't align with my educational philosophy. This university is very numbers based. There is no sense of care for what the students want and their concerns, such as ensuring their financial aid will cover their enrollment and allowing the time to explain this to a student versus having them be rushed and drop courses with expensive consequences....
