"Very redundant work, with no real incentives to advance."

Pros

Good work-life balance. Good benefits, especially if you are looking to go to school. After 6 months of employment DeVry will cover 100% of your tuition and 90% of a dependents tuition.

Cons

Very redundant work. Management tries to run the business as if it were a commission paying position which wouldn't be bad if it were a commission position but it is not. There is no incentive, but all of the pressure to perform. Many of the managers have very poor management skills, and since they are younger with no prior management experience, they tend to micro-manage, and do not know how to truly motivate their staff.

Advice to Management

Come up with some real incentives for performing well, and do a better job of vetting potential Assistant Directors. Do not promote Assistant Directors based on the number of students they register, but on the management, and leadership abilities that they posses.

    Pros

    It used to be a good company to work for.

    Cons

    Company doesn't schedule classes consistently, as in the past. You used to be able to plan your teaching schedules several terms into the future. Today, classes are assigned a week ahead of the start of the term.

    Advice to Management

    Company seems to not have adequate direction, especially in the online environment. Pay rates haven't changed lately, and frankly, they can't really get their act together.
