Admissions Advisor (Former Employee) – Online – March 19, 2018
It used to be a great company to work for, however after some changes in leadership the place went all the way down. It's a for-profit organization so you know what to expect but these people were not following the new regulations of the industry and it was like working for a used car dealership. It's sad because they lost a lot of great employees in a very short time period? I don't see this company lasting by the end of the year?
Senior Finance Analyst (Current Employee) – Naperville, IL – March 18, 2018
I worked at Adtalem formally known as DeVry Education Group for over 10 years. The work/life balance is great and so are their benefits. However, their salary is not too competitive and other people in similar positions at different companies make more money. I have run dry with the management at Adtalem. It's all about quantity and not quality and there is not a lot of engagement to be happy and enjoy your job.
RPR (Current Employee) – Remote – January 18, 2018
My position (like so many in the company) is phone based. I used to work with students directly, but now with partner organizations. Although being on the phone can get tedious at times, my co-workers, students, and managers have all made the job great. Don't misunderstand, the work is hard, and there can be plenty of stress (like any job), but the company truly works to maintain a sane and workable environment.
Sourcing Specialist (Current Employee) – Downers Grove, IL – January 17, 2018
The most enjoyable part of my job is my team and being able to leverage each others strengths to achieve our goals. My job gives me the work life balance that I need to be successful inside and outside of the office!
INDEPENDENT CONTRACTOR, DeVryWORKS (Former Employee) – Downers Grove, IL – January 17, 2018
Every person I worked with had one goal in mind and that was to help students be successful at the University. This is a collaborative environment where the employees were always looking out for the students best interest.
Analyst (Former Employee) – Downers Grove, IL – January 2, 2018
No longer the supportive place it used to be. Change in leadership and values have shifted away from employees to shareholders. A once open and sharing community has devolved to a secretive and stressful environments.
Director - IT Foundations (Former Employee) – Oakbrook Terrace, IL – December 1, 2017
It is a shame that this place could be so unhealthy to work at. I actually left because I flat out just didn't like walking in the door every morning. They didn't appreciate hard work and it was a group of people that had to play favorites and if you were not with the "In crowd" you were out. The CIO was one of the worst senior leaders I have worked with in my 25+ year career
National Dean for Hospitals (Current Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – November 22, 2017
Work with commitment and passion for the mission of the organization. Do the best i can do with the team and staff to get the most of our productive day. Keep the work place a fun with the attmost respect for the rules and regulations.
The most enjoyable part of the job is to see the great outcomes of the team and the success of the staff and students.
Student Finance Advisor (Former Employee) – Carrington College – November 3, 2017
Adtalem (formerly Devry) lays off employees like no other! The company is going through so many changes right now. Constantly laying off people, then rehiring. Every department is affected by layoffs with no notice. Management is poor. They come up with an idea to automate processes, lay off employees, then it doesn’t work so they rehire and continue the process. This company does not communicate. Impossible work loads and expectations. Micromanaged. Great benefits, only if they keep you around long enough to use them. I would not suggest working here.
Network Engineer (ISO) (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – October 27, 2017
In this dynamic and fast-paced environment, student (customer) satisfaction and systems uptime are the priorities! This brings out the best in me to always be on top of my game which is the most enjoyable part of the job. Solid communication is one of the cornerstones of this job
Associate Programmer Analyst (Former Employee) – Oakbrook, IL – October 12, 2017
Low pay, long hours (with no compensation), management heavy, impossible to reach deadlines, poor project organization, only 2 weeks of vacation at most for starting 8-10 days (with rare chance of increase), very biased view points that cause discomfort, contacted during vacation or sick time, and no paid lunch break.
Typical day at work: Fixing a production issue that is caused by lack of organization on a project that was rushed.
I learned that this is not the place for me.
Management can be fine, but generally is lacking in any sort of backbone. Whatever the higher ups say they do. Nobody argues against it, even if it would benefit the company.
Hardest part of the job is dealing with all of the above on a day-to-day basis.
The most enjoyable part of the job was working from home.
The worst part is they do not practice what they preach, hence all the negative press.
