Pros

I enjoyed my time working for DeVry, and my direct manager and department were fantastic. After enrollments began to drop, even my fantastic manager began to crack under pressure. -Great benefits including an education -Well respected university in some metros -Decent pay

Cons

-Terrible communication between departments -When the company began to struggle, they were quick to let go of the main workforce, but not as quick to look at senior management. -Tendency towards micromanagement instead of leading by inspiring -Low employee moral

Advice to Management

Spend more time looking inward and at upper level policies instead of placing all blame on lower level employees. Placing pressure and more rules on the company as a whole will not result in better results. More time at the drawing board and figuring out how DeVry fits into 2013 would greatly benefit the company.

    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 Management

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