I worked at DeVry University full-time (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 have been working at DeVry University full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    decent pay for coming straight out of college and pretty good benefits

    Cons

    lack of experience on managements part...we're are sales men and and women selling a 72,000 dollar education to ignorant people who really don't know any better. Devry easily makes at least 8-10,000 grand on people who start classes and within a year drop out and are left with the bill. All the while, Devry still receives their money. It is a corporation who doesn't care about it's employees or the students. Meanwhile, Daniel Hamburger is making millions and becoming more greedy by the minute.
