I would have referred everyone I knew to this company prior to coming to this campus.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Chicago, IL

ProsI have the pleasure of working directly with students and getting their feedback on how I can do my job better.

ConsWe have recently undergone major cuts and the department that I run is extremely spread thin. DeVry Inc. needs to realize that in order to get the results it desires in terms of services for its students, it needs to pay for and fund these resources as our people are spread way to thin. To me, this sends a mixed message from Home Office. I would much rather have resources to do my job effectively than a 401k annual profit share. Simply put, we get what we pay for. Invest in people.

Advice to Senior ManagementInvest in people, stop micro managing and misleading your employees. Stop hiring your friends and creating positions for them while laying off existing ones. We are and always will be a commuter college. Stop trying to make us somthing we are not and holding people to unrealistic standards in the meantime.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
