Pros

The pay is decent. Technology for managing students is OK.

Cons

The worst leadership in Higher Education. Students are constantly misled by the (90 percent) employed within 6 months. The admissions advisors, including the DOA, are clueless on the programs and product knowledge. Managers are hired from outside the company leaving those who start from the botton with little mobility for advancement.

Advice to Management

Train your managers to be leaders.

    Pros

    It provides its employees good pay, good advancement opportunities and above all it cares about it's employees.

    Cons

    The starting pay is great, but getting a respectable raise is difficult. You're expected to meet certain performance goals that are at best hard to attain great scores in.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes the EC's job function goes beyond just the numbers. EC supervisors and manager that manage an EC team in a remote location should ask the opinion of the people they directly service for their opinion of their work performance; don't just base their performance from the numbers run off from a 2 man reporting team.


  2. "No opportunity for growth"

    Pros

    Free tuition for classes
    Lots of independence in your position.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, DeVry is not a very good school academically so that free tuition program is useless. There is little to no opportunity for advancement here. Although the base pay starts out quite high, it is hard to get a raise and if you don't hit your admissions goals, management can even take away some of your pay. Overtime is strongly encouraged, yet the company only pays half time for all over time hours worked.

    Advice to Management

    Promote within the company, using your current employees who have already established strong product knowledge and a good selling rapport.
