    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at DeVry University full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of autonomy (which, unfortunately, comes from constant restructuring and consequent lack of management consistency)

    Cons

    Frequent layoffs and "restructuring." You're safest at the bottom of the totem poe; once they start paying you well, your head is on the chopping block.

    Advice to Management

    I don't even know where to start.

    I worked at DeVry University full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    A lot of great people as co-workers. Some great, dedicated students.

    Cons

    Where to start? Pay structure was lopsided. Management, especially at home office, was horrible and ineffective. Favorites excelled and quality of work meant nothing. Couldn't wait to find a new job. An extensive amount of great employees let go in massive rounds of layoffs.

    Advice to Management

    Gut the company from the top down, rather than laying off everyone who actually works.

    Leaders are focused on friendships not necessarily competence
