    I have been working at DeVry Education Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent opportunity for learning, teaching, and developing others. Constantly deploying new technologies. Good focus on priorities, although they can change as needs require. Lots of different sites, including overseas, in Brasil, and Caribbean.

    Cons

    Often requires 50+ hour work weeks, large project portfolio requires constant shifting of resources, tend to be fire oriented versus strategic planners. Future doesn't look positive primarily due to unfair regulatory targeting and legislative uncertainty.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on your strategic direction and effective use of resources. Avoid overcommitting to a project portfolio. Continue to focus on positive culture. Ensure all employees have required development and future growth.
