      Pros

      Pay is wonderful, great benefits, and room from growth!

      Cons

      You are overworked, extremely! You process so many things daily that mistakes are made by everyone. You are calling 20-30 people daily.

      Pros

      Great work environment, great benefits, latitude to grow and help students.

      Cons

      Gave professors a certain amount of PTO, then took it away, some of the management didn't know how to manage faculty. Layoffs seemed arbitrary, started the conversation, "this is not about age."

      Pros

      Good pay for higher education, and great benefits. The best part about DeVry was the people- great employees who have a good work ethic and really care about the students.

      Cons

      The cons far outweigh the pros and it ends up feeling like a toxic environment. I have never been overworked or micromanaged to the level I was while working at DeVry. They monitor every second you are logged into the phones, and you have only a few minutes between calls to write follow up emails and update all your systems (and there are many) before getting an IM asking why you aren’t back in Ready Status. It’s baffling- there’s so many departments to contact, so many cumbersome business processes to work around that its quite stressful to do all of that within 2 min between calls. Thing slip easily through the cracks here because the focus is not on caring for the student and doing whatever we can for them, but hurrying to go back into Ready to maintain our SLAs. In all of my one on one meetings here, we never talked about advancement or anything else besides “what can you do to decrease your Not Ready time?” With all the complaints and uncertainty surrounding DeVry, why is management’s focus always only on SLAs? Shouldn’t it be about student retention and how we can care for them better?

      Not what it used to be

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Great team members. Great benefits, benefits take effect day 1 and they match 401k. For higher education pay is pretty good, typically pays more than traditional schools.

      Cons

      High turnover, beware of quarterly layoffs. Work life balance nonexistent. Job duties change without notice and clear instruction or direction on new policies. Little to no training for new hires. Management makes requesting time off or schedule accommodations uncomfortable and awkward to discourage you from using accrued time. High performing team members are given more work and sometimes the work of other team members.

      Pros

      Great benefits and salary. Good school to work for.

      Cons

      Poor management from headquarters. Constant changing of policies create knowledge gaps. Metrics are made to satisfy shareholders who only want more money, creating stressful metrics. No one listens to those experienced, only those with high positions. My understanding is that things have not changed since I left.
