    Pros

    Good work environment, good flexibility, hours are perfect, pay is good for what the job entails.

    Cons

    Management structure can be hit or miss. They are good when the region does well, but when things start to get shaky, they completely turn to code red mode. There seems to be no middle ground and minimal ability to adjust

    Pros

    The work environment is positive and supportive. Everyone acts as a team and there are opportunities for growth.

    Because it was a large corporate department, initiatives could be slow to get off the ground. Or they could be insanely quick. There wasn’t a lot of in between.

    Negative Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at DeVry University full-time

    Pros

    The people and atmosphere is amazing. Benefits are something you don’t see very often, making it very difficult to leave if you are not happy. Plenty of opportunity for growth if you are willing to stick it out long enough

    Cons

    Micromanagement is so bad that it makes the workday very stressful. Sometimes the focus on numbers is so bad, that it makes people fearful of their job being taken from them. In admissions, you are a cold-call solicitor.

    Pros

    Great group of people.

    Cons

    Industry was going through some rough times. Looks like they are turning it around
