    Pros

    Working for Devry Inc was a great experience to say the least. Exceptional leadership, training programs.

    Cons

    The possibility of moving up in the company seemed to be a task and a half. The management that was around was exceptional and did not move out of their position for years.

    Pros

    Very collaborative culture; mission driven; nice work life balance; suppportive HR leadership; high standards.

    DeVry is in a time of change however this change is good. We are adapting to a changing environment and in doing so, staying relevant. We are using new technologies which create effeciancies. Students need these changes.

    Yes, some change is hard but ultimately change is good and required. Some folks have a harder time understanding the need and reasons behind the change. If we didn't change, we wouldn't exist, plan and simple.

    Cons

    It would be nice to have a jeans day more often. :-)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep communicating; change is necessary and welcomed when communicated correctly
