I worked at DeVry University full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Currently in 2013 there is now room for advancement and training that was not available before. Admissions department pay has been lowered, but so has the workload for a more balanced work life. Academic departments are more streamlined and not as confusing as it once was during the time of my employment there. If you have the right management in place, it can be a great place to work.

Cons

The problems can be favoritism which ran rampant during my employment period of 2004 - 2009. And accountability for one's own work, and plenty of management back door dealings that we're borderline libel. From what I've seen and heard as of now, some of those practices have been eliminated, or they have taken strides to get ride of it. Unfortunately, there are still some bad seeds in the company.

    I worked at DeVry University full-time

    Pros

    With all of the overtime, pay was okay. Benefits including health and 401K are very good. Able to roll over some vacation time and allow employees to buy more vacation time. DeVry is quick to promote within same department and give raises.

    Cons

    Some management is great others are horrible, depends on the departments. A lot of employees leave and then come back to company. I had to work 50 hour weeks in order to get decent pay. DeVry doesn't like to promote outside an employees current department. They would rather loose the employee all together.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a look at the salary range for employees, I don't believe it is in line with the rest of the industry.
