student (Former Employee), Henderson, NVAugust 29, 2015
Pros: short days
Cons: lost of homework
While at Devry University, I attended classes as a student. The overall learning experience was great. I learned so much and I believe it made me a better person the short time I was there. I ended up living and starting to work again.

Part-time work and be able to go to school
Federal Work Study Faculty Assistant (Current Employee), Colton, CAAugust 25, 2015
Pros: No longer shy
Cons: Hours cut, need more experience in career field
Great environment to feel welcome and be a part of a team. I have learned a lot from over 2 years of working here as my first job. Management is excellent to teach me new things that can be useful with other jobs. My co-workers are outstanding, and can achieve what is being given to us. The hardest part of the job is when there are so many students to help and there is only one student worker on the clock, it is nerve wrecking. The most enjoyable part of the job, is after helping students, I get compliments on how excellent customer service I give, and telling don't leave as well as I should work there full-time.

Good Career Starter
Academic Advisor (Current Employee), Naperville, ILAugust 12, 2015
Pros: Excellent work environment in an honest company.
Cons: Little room for advancement
I would recommend DeVry to any of my friends and family as being an excellent company with good values who walks the talk and actually cares about its colleagues and students. Yes, we get tossed in with the other for profit educators but I feel that I managed to find the best of the bunch on the first try. If DeVry has any fault it tends to be in its failure to overcome corporate inertia. There's a lot of talk about flexibility and training but few things really change except for academic policies and procedures. The corporate structure doesn't allow much room for advancement but it's a great place to get good experience.

Great if your not getting laid off...
Admissions Representative (Current Employee), Addison, ILJuly 28, 2015
Pros: Pay, Benefits, Work-Life Balance
Cons: Pressured to get sales, Laid off so stability is an issue
Basic duties: Call, text, and email pending prospect students. Once you have them on the phone you must complete an interview around 45 minutes total and get them to apply. Then you have to follow up for documents and testing. Overall its was like a telemarketing setup call people multiple times a day, and expected to get people to apply. Managers will listen to your calls and give you feed back or scold you for doing something incorrectly so they are listening constantly. Typically set hours, paid bi-weekly, good benefits, decent 401K, and great work life balance - 2 weeks off with option to purchase another week when enrollment is available. Moving up in the company seems difficult as you have to be a top performer and network quite a bit but they are there to help. The people that work there are really nice but I know with admissions at a low they are tending to be more aggressive. Only regret was being laid off... I was only there 6 months...

GRADUATE ADMISSIONS ADVISOR (Former Employee), Addison, ILJuly 19, 2015
This was the worse job I ever had in my life. This job stole my happiness for over 2 years. This is a starter job or a job when you can't find anything better. Run! Do not waste your life at DeVry.

Good Company Culture - Tough Industry.
Admissions Advisor (Former Employee), Chicago, ILJuly 18, 2015
Pros: Flexible scheduling. Great environment
Cons: Industry is down, so job security isn't as high as it used to be.
Compared to other companies, DeVry is a great place to work. Management is supportive, and they do try to develop their talent. Education is a tough industry though, so they have had to cut back some of their resources and some support departments are overworked.
