I worked at DeVry University full-time

Pros

Devry is a good environment to work in look to improve company through trainings, internal reorganizations, and process changes. The university has made many decisions to keep the company’s profits steady in a declining market segment. Services and systems have been designed to help the student self-register and track progression. Process changes have been implemented to build uniformity across campuses and online education within the Devry system.

Cons

Devry has built their name by providing hands on cutting edge education which has been watered down due to the globalization of their education philosophy and online education focus. By online becoming a focal point, the local campus education is no longer cutting edge. The process of education has become upper level management making local level management decision without understanding the local campus needs. The end product (education) has suffered a major downgrade which directly has effected student population, employee morale, and overall reputation.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Remember the foundation of Devry education by providing cutting edge technology coursework and become one university without losing what has made Devry standout and grow -- quality relevant hands on cutting edge education.

    Pros

    At my location, their are various comittees and stretch assignments that you can get involved with that are responsible for growing the organization. Decent pay and great benefits.

    Cons

    It's all a numbers game and people can become very evil when trying to reach their goals. Absolutely NO work/life balance. If you are good, they will suck the blood out of you!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start paying your top employees better and treat them better or they will continue to LEAVE!
