Management is AWOL from the corporate office to the local schools so the inmates(local managers) run the asylum.

Manager (Former Employee)
Austin, TX

ProsStarting pay is decent for the market.

ConsWhere do you begin?
Poor working environment
Micromanagement
Educational facilities and equipment outdated and needs replaced
Arcane policies
Lip service to education but the truth is just put a but in the seat so we get paid
No advancement opportunities
Your input is not desired or needed because we will do it our way even if it is wrong
It seems everyone is looking for another job during the entire time while employed at DeVry.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe for profit model is broken and needs repaired. Please look into hiring individuals that can make cogent calls moving forward.

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