Working at DeVry as an Educator combines both Corporate and Academic Experience

Professor (Current Employee)
Tinley Park, IL

ProsWork 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.

ConsDeVry 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 Senior ManagementGive 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Pros: I work with Great employees/friends. Cons: I’ve never been associated with a company with such HORRIBLE upper-level management (president, directors, deans). The president has no trust in the employees and… Advice to Senior Management: Though you may have "control" you have zero loyalty. Employees across the line have nothing positive to… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
