Thread regarding Adtalem layoffs

What's it like working at Chamberlain?

I just came across this site and after reading through some Glassdoor reviews, figured I'd ask here.

I'm currently employed, but looking to move and saw an advisor position at Chamberlain. I was curious on a few things. 1) How's working with management? Glassdoor was mixed, but I'm not sure how current those were. 2) Is the actual market okay? Saw one of the posts here about the slower enrollment growth, and not sure if this would have an impact on future turnover? 3) Work/life balance seems okay?

Thanks!!

Run away. Far away. No job security, incompetent management who try to micromanage, and the education the schools offers is mediocre at best. If you want to work in education and actually feel like you are making a difference, this is not the place for you.

I don't know about admissions, but I was in the registrar side of things. One of the happiest days of my life was the day I walked out of that place for the last time. Micromanagement is an understatement, and I could handle it if it was managed at least decently. However, its pretty much handled backwards. Its always about the numbers. Quantity is great, but patients will be happier with quality. I doubt a lot of these students would have cut it at a real nursing school. I would keep looking if I were you, there has to be something better.

I used to work as an advisor as well. Loved my coworkers, loved working with the students. Did scored well with the constant evaluative recordings and quality control reports they do on as an advisor. Everything everyone else is saying is true. It’s quite sad. You are nothing. Many advisors have more education than top management but management comes in and just tells you- you are the reason we are failing, you can be replaced. Then hops on the plane and goes back to the home office. Constant reorganizing how they want things done, but not giving time to get the ball rolling with the previous changes to see gains. Each school needs to be looked at individually and talk with that campuses leadership to see what they feel is working and adjust from there. Yes. Streamline, but recognize each area of the country and each school has its own culture. I’m currently at a state school and yes! It took an adjustment to move to a job where I didn’t need to worry about going to the bathroom and getting in trouble. I feel valued and like a real human. Don’t take a position at this college.

Believe the negative reviews on here and on Glassdoor and stay far away. The management views you (and the students) as nothing more than a number and will replace you at the drop of a hat. I saw several good employees fired. Plus I’ve never seen a place with so much micromanagement. A total nightmare!

Stay away, FAR away. I was there for a bit and I was thrilled when I got out of there. When unemployment starts looking more appealing than the job you have, there is a problem. And having worked there and seen all the BS that goes on, I actively encourage people not to work there or go to school there. I have seen some of the student scores that come out of the "school" if a nurse tells me she is a Chamberlain grad, I ask for someone else to work with me.

I was an advisor at Chamberlain, loved my job, loved the people I worked with in my immediate area- agree with other responses. You are not valued, you are replaceable. Upper management is so disconnected it’s sad. They truly treat you like you are worthless and nothing. They say it to you, they say it around you, it’s passed down- it’s sad. Do not work for them. I have since moved to a state college job and it’s a breath of fresh air- people make you feel welcome, you are looked at like you are lying when you are sick, you feel human- something I didn’t even realize was missing at Chamberlain until I moved away from them.

It's still basically DeVry on the inside.

Agree with other responses. I used to work for Chamberlain as an advisor. The people I worked with were great but the upper leadership is so disconnected and treats you like a lower class citizen. They don’t even try to give the talk of same team same goal, they make it clear you are replaceable and everything that happens in a negative way to the company, school or department is because you didn’t work hard enough. It’s a shame really

If you have a job, stay the hell away from this company. You will regret it.
