Director of New Student Enrollment Services (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – October 15, 2018
The company is more concerned with the bottom line than the future of the students. As long as you meet the numbers set for you, you will succeed - miss them once and you may not have a job. No real concern for the financial security of the students as long as the numbers are met
Full-time Professor (Former Employee) – Decatur, GA – September 29, 2018
I really enjoyed the people I worked with, a typical day at work for me was very enjoyable and relaxing because I was doing what I was born to do. I would get to work write my agenda on the board, when the students came in I made learning fun and interactive. I always lectured in a way that all learning styles were used.
Student Advisor (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – September 22, 2018
I will say most collegues are great and interdepartmental cooperation is good but unfortunately, the business model only remains alive due to freely given, consequence free (i.e. for the school) student loans/VA benefits and throwing the book out when it comes to holding students accountable for doing the coursework.
There is a reason the for profit sector gets black eye in the media. To improve their image, they have asked students and staff (mostly student workers and staff assistants) to write good reviews on sites such as this one. Though they have good intentions and some good programs on paper, they keep dumbing down the classes to keep students enrolled, while relying on government aid and are happy not to be held accountable for low repayment rates and say yes to every student request. They hang a damocles over the head of professors who do not pass their students and keep students enrolled who should not be by rubber stamping them through. If none of that bothers you, then have at it.
You can actually help about 20% of the student population benefit

Student Information Technology Worker (Current Employee) – Fresno, CA – September 19, 2018
I started School at DeVry University long before I worked there so I knew how things were when a opening came up. I have loved working there due to many factors. We are all about the student and the people, everything revolves around the end user pertaining to experience and usability. Its a great company and can be closely related to a family, even people you don't know will treat you great as you are one big family.
Great people, networking opportunities and flexible school schedule.
Metro President (Former Employee) – Pomona, CA – September 16, 2018
I worked for DeVry for nearly 13 years. Changes in higher education and for-profit universities had many negative effects on all for-profit schools, including DeVry. I thoroughly enjoyed my tenure while working in several locations and positions with DeVry. They strive to do the right thing helping students achieve their educational and career goals. I was vey happy working at DeVry, and was sorry that the changes in higher education affected DeVry and my tenure there.
Excellent Leadership, good career opportunities.
Difficult work life balance in leadership positions.
Computer Engineering Technology Student (Former Employee) – Addison, IL – September 8, 2018
I was just a student at DeVry, but the work that I did there introduced me to many different aspects to engineering that I enjoyed greatly, and the professors there brought real world experience and lessons into the classroom.

my initial experience away from college and internships, learned alot, met alot of great people. met with many educators that were inspiring. It was rewarding to help high school students figure out their future/
Unfortunately, with the decline of applicants at DeVry, there are currently not a lot of job opportunities. I worked in Career Services- had an excellent and supportive manager, excellent co-workers. Great communication in the department and felt always supported and up to date with needs and requirements.
Registration Clerk (Former Employee) – Fort Washington, PA – August 14, 2018
A normal day at DeVry University is mostly testing new students that will be enrolling. I was able to work closely with management which helped me learn a lot about the business side of things. There was actually not a hard part about doing that job. It was really a comfortable place to come into each day and the hours were flexible. That also made it easier for me to attend my classes as well.

EXECUTIVE ASSISTANT (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – August 9, 2018
I never felt excited about this workplace. The director had been the only bright light in the office. She worked hard to motivate and grow the staff professionally, but though she is armed with many skills, any of the team members were more concerned with everything outside of the office. A never ending uphill battle.
Creative and driven leader
working with individuals that just did not care, self-serving.
