    Pros

    off work all holidays, good insurance, made good friends working at the Chicago location. The office location was very convenient.

    Cons

    management is driving the company into the ground. Management listens to no one but themselves. They just feed off each other's garbage. Employees are treated like children.

    Pros

    Good benefits and pay, ability to work independently or with others.

    Cons

    the DeVry TEACH values don't really exist. There is a lot of preferential treatment for those who do as they are told and don't ask a lot of questions or expect any support and do it all on their own. If you don't tow the line and do as you are told you are then given the option to leave or they start creating mid and end of year performance reviews that are not in alignment with the goals and things you did accomplish. Managers / Directors take your ideas and turn them into something favorable for themselves. People are promoted that don't deserve it, usually it is those who did what they were told but are completely incompetent. Leaders in the field are the cause of low employee satisfaction and very high turnover. If you enjoy being insulted in front of your peers, being stabbed in the back by unfounded lies and having your work plagiarized you would do well here. Career progression is a joke, courses and training that isn't available and is largely irrelevant. Only the sucks ups go to conferences or training outside the organization and there is so much fear from leaders that their employees are going to leap frog and be better leaders they do what they can to make you look bad or get rid of you.

    Advice to Management

    You should think about your best boss ever and turn into that person or hire better and proven leaders that are not political. Stop throwing insults, lying about people or plagiarizing their work.

    The benefits are really good. Great health care coverage and the 401k plan the company has set up is really good and starts about 6 months after being a full time employee.

    Cons

    The communication is hard to follow or trust from upper management. Dog eat dog atmosphere. Numbers driven environment with, so if you don't like sales, this is not a position for you.
