I have been working at DeVry University full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Work with Top-Notch, High Quality Faculty. On any given campus, Faculty have thousands of years of relevant real-world work experience, unlike schools with pure academics teaching. Students are above average, they work hard, and deserve the great jobs they get after graduation.

Cons

DeVry is the premiere private sector educator. Others in the market space dilute the segment and give it a bad perception. The truth is that the education at DeVry is as good as the professors that teach there, who are superb and can stack up against any Ivy League school. The problem is that too many outside political powers have targeted private sector colleges to perpetuate the misconception that public schools are better.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give Faculty more autonomy and opportunities to grow. The Faculty are the most mission-critical component of the organization. DeVry could not exist without the highly experienced and talented teachers that work hard to develop our students into highly functional contributors to our workforce.

    I worked at DeVry University full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The tuition benefit is great, employees are encouraged to take advantage of it
    There were several initiatives to promote employee financial, physical and emotional well being
    Good 401k policy
    If you show initiative, they will invest heavily in you

    Cons

    Health insurance isn't too great

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rightsizing should the the last resort. As a sign of goodwill, how about pledging to reduce your salaries until the situation becomes better. This would instill a sense of comradery
