    I worked at DeVry University full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Not sure if this benefit has changed but I was able to get a degree basically for free, some charges like books and student fees. Family members got a good discount too!
    The people I worked with were all awesome at what they did and how they treated the students.
    The pay was good, especially when salaries are lower in my area compared to other parts where the school has open locations.

    Cons

    Hard to move up in the company. Favoritism at its finest when opening were available. When layoffs happened, extra work was given to those still there but salaries didn't reflect the extra tasks assigned to the roles. Campuses were closed due to restructuring but it wasnt based on the success of the campus, but based on "other" things that weren't mentioned nor explained.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your people what they are worth, it's cheaper to keep them then to start new. Students prefer to have the same faces and voices take care of them, thus turnover can hurt the bottomline because you're unwilling to compensate your folks.

    Pros

    A great place to work for

    I worked at DeVry University (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Company used to be innovative and desired to push the edges of online education courses with creative solutions to interactivity

    Cons

    Leadership changed and bean counters began shaving copper at the downfall of the student learning experience

    Advice to Management

    Teaching online requires investment in innovation. When students are engaged and interact, they learn. When they have fun learning , they boast to their friends and coworkers and you get free advertising. Such a sad demise from the glory days.

    I worked at DeVry University full-time

    Pros

    There are no Pros of any contact with DeVry University.

    Cons

    Students are tossed around by an organization that doesn't care nor have a clue of what it's doing. Disabled Veterans ADA Accommodations are not properly managed or enforced.

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue!

    Pros

    Great work environment, great benefits, latitude to grow and help students.

    Cons

    Gave professors a certain amount of PTO, then took it away, some of the management didn't know how to manage faculty. Layoffs seemed arbitrary, started the conversation, "this is not about age."

    Advice to Management

    Understand that faculty have pretty much a round the clock schedule online and are not cube employees.
