    Pros

    The company is profitable, and will probably remain in business longer than other "Dead men walking" in the for-profit educational industry

    Cons

    DeVry is a for-profit university. It does not matter what word follows for-profit, however. This is a miserly, pinched view of the world. You will receive little training, and you will quickly come to understand that it is not about mission, it is not about respect, it is not about the students, it is simply about profit, without regard to how it is earned.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have assembled a group of people at most parts of your organization who work there solely for economic reasons: people who can get out, do, except for those at the top who profit from this arrangement via stock options. Tie executive compensation to both long-term shareholder value and student performance. Hire citizen-soldiers, per Machiavelli, not mercenaries
