work load is overwhelming
Student Finance Consultant (Former Employee) –  Naperville, ILJune 28, 2014
the work load is overwhelming
try to fit in because if you don't advancement will be difficult
management is 50/50, some are fantastic but not all

they put you in team but rate your individual performance but want you to have team spirit and some things are rated as a group, however your individual performance is what will break you so focus on your performance

you will get treated badly by students on the phone, come in with a thick skin
Pros
pay and benefits
Cons
work load

Program Director (Former Employee) –  Boise, IDJune 26, 2014
The typical work day was very busy. Learned not to trust large business. Management was not the best. Co-workers seemed depressed most of the time. The hardest part of the job was dealing with my staff, three women. The most enjoyable part of this job was seeing successful outcomes for students.
Pros
ok pay
Cons
big business

Good place to work if you have the right bosses and no conscious
Regional Director (Former Employee) –  Southeast USJune 2, 2014
Provided great training
I advanced quickly through hard work and excellent results
Incompetent (and jealous) managers ran off some of the best employees the company ever had.

Company has changed drastically over the years.
DeVry is trying to sell an inferior, extremely overpriced education to a targeted market (minorities).
Cost is paid through private unsecured loans. Majority of students don't graduate and many can't pay back loans (which can add up to over 100K!)

If you have a conscious, don't work here.
If you don't care that you are taking advantage of vulnerable people, this is a place where you can make good money but avoid working for idiots, especially in the Atlanta and D.C. markets.
Pros
earnings potential, good training
Cons
incompetent management (not everywhere), dealing with the devil

Company that offers excellent educational benefits for you and your family
Design Director (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILAugust 13, 2013
As a global provider of educational services, DeVry Inc. does a relatively good job of keeping a healthy culture through good management, intensives, work-life balance, and the big picture outlook. The employee and family educational benefit is a perk hard to beat.
Pros
good management, educational benefits
Cons
reactive thinking and occasional panic mode

Typical corporate environment with high work load and low pay
Network Operations Center Technician (Former Employee) –  Oak Brook, ILDecember 31, 2012
The management expected too much from the personnel working in the NOC which they called the DOC. They wanted most of the IT responsibilities to run through the DOC while leaving the deparment short handed. A typical day would be struggling to get through all the daily activities while enjoying the company of your co-workers and fearing disipline action from the managers. The co-workers are very nice people that are overworked just as much as those in the DOC so the environment was balanced by good people but hard to work with management. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with so many different kinds of technical systems and the hardest part of the job was managnig all of the daily tasts whilst being afraid to make any kind of mistake.
Pros
nice people to work with, a lot of things to learn and gain experience on
Cons
over-demanding management, low pay

benefits are great, but you will sacrificing your life for those benefits
Admissions Advisor (Former Employee) –  Addison, ILJuly 20, 2012
If you work for Devry you will regret it!!!!!!!!!!!!!! In Admissions all they care about is money and they don't care about the students needs. because this is an inside call center job, your job security is threatened everyday. Every year they get rid of people they don't regardless if that person is enrolling students. A typical day is dialing 300 dials when you talk to no one. The inquiry QUALITY SUCKS bad numbers and bad emails. Mangement has two ways of training and they wont listen to your suggestions to help you. The hardest part of the job is keeping a student who has no money convinced that spending 28,000 dollars on a degree in the online world will be the best thing for them. The best part of the job is the benfits
Pros
benfits and pay
Cons
mangement style, no work life blance

Worst company that I've ever worked for.
Executive Assistant (Former Employee) –  Milwaukee, WIJune 22, 2012
Micromanaging supervisors, failed leadership and low quality education. This company has proven to be in the business for money and not for the students best interest. Would not recommend.

Great place to work for but culture/management can be better
SENIOR SECURITY ENGINEER (Current Employee) –  Oak Brook ILMay 3, 2012
busy, busy busy and busy
new tools, DLP, SIEM, Cascade, Encryption, cloud security, etc...
Management can be better, if they can understand their role- manager and dirty cops doesn't go together.
Hardest part of job is to keep everyone happy- and it's a last minute thingy.
Mentoring my team member
uh! my co workers if they can only communicate...
Pros
holiday party
Cons
remote work-
