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.
An Institute where the Employment depended on Enrollment of Students

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.

The people you work with you grow close to because you work as a team. Management is constantly on top of you and sometimes it is overbearing for people. The company is not afraid to fire people and talk trash in meetings about the people they fired and use it as a scare tactic to get you to recruit more students. Here you really do feel as though the students are all a numbers game. It doesn't really seem like they are passionate to see their students succeed, just to get them to start classes so the numbers look good for upper management.

Nice people, really helped students. Only thing is they offer to many online classes which doesn't allow students to fully understand the material the school is offering. They should offer more on campus classes so more can be taught instead of relying on computers to help a student learn. Students pay their hard earn money when repaying their student loans. Its not fair if you ask me.
I traveled a lot for DeVry University. They offered me a great amount of training but did not deliver. Overall, it was up to me to do what was necessary regardless of their promises. They offered courses that didn't exist and made me pay for them. Their compensation is low and their mission is fruitless.
Cheap place to go to school, will do whatever to get you through.
Lacking any real reputation that they claim to have, online schooling is a lie, overall this school is a scam.
Professor (Former Employee) – Tampa, FL – July 4, 2018
DeVry is a great platform to finish your degree fast and easy when you have in-campus and online options to take courses. It's very flexible. My Class was always professionally provided by all necessary teaching equipment and materials.
High School Admissions Representative (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – June 29, 2018
We had a great local campus with great local leadership. However, the corporate office pays little attention to the opinions and advice of those in the field. There are annual layoffs so no job security.
Pros: Pays better than competition Cons: No job security, limited advancement opportunities
