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

    Generally good group of employees- all levels. DeVry has ample job postings which affords opportunities within your field or outside.

    Cons

    lack of loyalty or transparency within the organization. Strategic initiatives (lack of) and senior leadership questionable as enrollments continue to decline. Appears no clear vision or direction in place.
