Receptionist (Former Employee) – Charlotte, NC – June 18, 2018
A typical day at work consisted of coming in and making sure that the interview rooms were clean and ready to be use. I learned about how to order transcripts and how to scan and transfer information to make sure it was attached to the correct student. The most enjoyable part of the job was my co-workers and meeting new potential students. The hardest part was when I had to leave.

Visiting Professor I (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – June 10, 2018
Teach online and in class chemistry and organic chemistry Laboratory equipment was inadequate Online laboratory software was not sufficient to teach the required curriculum Great support but poor salary
Good people with poor upper management and leadership.
Professor (Former Employee) – Remote – June 5, 2018
I loved my job but the leadership failed to see what was important about education. So many people did such great work for so many years. It's is sad we are not still working there being led by competent managers and visionaries.
Faculty Assistant (Former Employee) – Kansas City, MO – June 3, 2018
The Faculty Assistant program was well run and I enjoyed the challenge of some parts of the job--figuring out why someone's lab project did not work as it should have and then direct them to figure it out for themselves with some minor guidance and clues.
Lab Technician (Former Employee) – Alpharetta, GA – May 28, 2018
All management and student employees at DeVry were wonderful honest hard workers. My boss was a real gem who did everything he could to help me do my job well, and all of us were working under insane conditions at one point. Corporate decisions had the electronics lab moving ot the second floor. A bunch of us had to deal with actually moving the lab, but the process was organized and managed well by an understanding boss.
University Professor (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – May 25, 2018
Most students are below average academic quality. Many work hard and gained knowledge. Too many in it for the piece of paper and did minimum effort. Very little feedback for adjunct professors not tied to one of DeVry's campuses.
Flexibility of online teaching, good pay
Minimal feedback on your efforts, Extreme mgmt focus on number of students passed with regard for their effort or academic progress
Full-time Professor (Former Employee) – Decatur, GA – May 25, 2018
Management could have been better. I did not expect to get let go from DeVry after 18 years, that taught me that companies are not loyal anymore and it's hard to be loyal as well because of situations like this.
Advisor (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – May 22, 2018
This Job was a stepping stone. As a business professional, I have to be brutally honest. I feel there was a lot of meetings on pumping the advisers up to meet unrealistic and unattainable monthly quotas. Ridiculous promises of extremely high commissions and annual sales were made. This job was a complete scam and the management was extremely manipulative. I would also like to add I am a extremely positive, outgoing and likable person!
Senior Admissions Representative (Inbound) (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – May 20, 2018
Overall a decent experience; there were some difficult moments, which had more to do with certain managers than the job itself. Thoroughly enjoyed managing and helping to train develop team to succeed and accomplish career goals. Also enjoyed helping prospective students begin their own educational goals..
Helping develop my team
Some managers were extremely immature and incompetent
Working at a private university has great benefits, but in a small center you wear many hats, Lots of pressure for sales and numbers. It lost the meaning of offering great courses and it became all about student retention and meeting numbers,
