Disapproves of CEO

Pros

The pay is decent. Technology for managing students is OK.

Cons

The worst leadership in Higher Education. Students are constantly misled by the (90 percent) employed within 6 months. The admissions advisors, including the DOA, are clueless on the programs and product knowledge. Managers are hired from outside the company leaving those who start from the botton with little mobility for advancement.

Advice to Management

Train your managers to be leaders.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    It provides its employees good pay, good advancement opportunities and above all it cares about it's employees.

    Cons

    The starting pay is great, but getting a respectable raise is difficult. You're expected to meet certain performance goals that are at best hard to attain great scores in.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes the EC's job function goes beyond just the numbers. EC supervisors and manager that manage an EC team in a remote location should ask the opinion of the people they directly service for their opinion of their work performance; don't just base their performance from the numbers run off from a 2 man reporting team.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Great benefits Good place to start and learn the business Solid reputation Compensation is fair

    Cons

    Human resources is simply awful Tuition is too high for the two year programs Management too young with weak managerial skills Must be with the in crowd to get promoted Senior management too high pressure and negative CEO is greedy and impatient Leads are terrible some as old as two or three years The job is very hard to do when poor behavior is not addressed, lack of professionism and poor resources to do your job. Morale is extremely low and most of the Directors are out for themselves. There is pressure to work weekends and overtime even though they don't pay time and a half. No work life balance and DeVry is joked as being a relationship killer. Most people pack on serious pounds due to stress related to the job. They closed the office due to poor numbers. Poor senior management and lack of HR support was a huge factor in the failure.

    Advice to Management

    Negative negative negative. Try some encouragement for a change. Stop being so greedy. Raising the tuition in this environment was assinine. Promote the best managers and not just the hot chicks or buddies of the DAs. Teach managers people skills. Fire incompetent managers. Phoenix had managers that were terrible yet never addressed them.
