    I worked at DeVry University full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Less people makes for more work. Some say that's a pro.

    Cons

    It's been about 4 months since 6% of the company was laid off and with this economy, very hard to find a career. Mainly because I was paid a lot of money (main reason I believe in laying me off) and now all of the companies I look for can't meet the demand I was so use to living. DeVry knew I recently bought a home and had a growing family though didn't take that into consideration when laying a Senior Advisor off. They have not helped regarding finding new work with recommendations and I'm still getting emails and mailers from them! I have called and told them to stop emailing or mailing me about their school since it's obvious I wouldn't dare get another degree from them. This has not been done.

    Advice to Management

    The NJ location has management via who they hang out with and who they have known the longest. The credentials don't need to be involved since it's all about the politics. Playing the politics also allows for harrassment to exist. I'm sure anyone who is from the NJ location knows what that means so no need to go into it further.

    I have been working at DeVry University full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    A great place to begin a carrer. Constant training & weekly review of progress. Incentive to continue education. They are always looking to promote within.

    Cons

    Changes are constantly occuring, however there is always training to implement changes. You just have to be willing to adapt the changes.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!
