    I worked at DeVry University part-time

    Pros

    Flexible schedules and easy going atmosphere that allows for students to assist the rest of the student body with research, but also study during free time while at work.

    Cons

    The only real downside to the job is automatically having your position terminated once you graduate.

    I worked at DeVry University full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    This university has all the elements of a great place to work. Wonderful colleagues, well led, fantastic students. My experience was meaningful and successful.

    Cons

    Government interference in private education has really hurt this market. So sad. Students who need DeVry are not coming there because of false and misleading accusations.

    Advice to Management

    Hang in there. You are awesome!

    Pros

    Autonomy, overall good course shell design, responsive IT department

    Cons

    Recently there has been a big inconsistency in class scheduling and I am no longer scheduled for courses I've been teaching for years; huge push in 2017 for "bigger," "flashier" multimedia presence in courses which also comes with hours of (unpaid) training; no raise in 6 years

    DeVry is a good job for recent college graduates or entry level employee types.
