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

Pros

For full-time faculty - great schedule; reasonably competitive pay; make sure you work for a good dean -- I am happy to have a great one. Most faculty are good to work with. A lot of long tenured individuals. No pressure to publish.

Cons

As full-time faculty, you will be teaching a lot more than at a typical research university -- the schedule is still good though. Not a lot of faculty are interested in research and there is no departmental funding to do so.
Some administrators require faculty to rigidly stick to pre-designed curriculum, which can be good start from new instructors, but can be annoying for more experienced ones.
Will probably be required to teach online from time-to-time.

Advice to Management

Encourage research activity; hire more PhD's to be full-time instructors and let the experienced, qualified instructors be creative in delivering top quality material to their students. Each campus should be allowed to be distinguish itself based on its strengths.

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

    Pros

    My team at that time and helping student find financial resources that would help assist in their education

    Cons

    Consist frictions between academic, registrar and admission. It seemed as if everyone wanted to pass the buck and not take responsibility. In addition, people were starting to do things because it was coming so driven by admission and getting student enrolled and not helping or considered with if Devry was the right fit for that student.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on quality and not dollar signs!

    Pros

    There is nothing good to say

    Cons

    "While we are disappointed with this quarter's results, we are optimistic about mid- and long- term growth in higher education," said DeVry CEO Daniel Hamburger.

    Advice to Management

    So the answer....fire everyone that really keeps the company going or treat them so bad they leave. Instead of worrying about your salary or money, why don't you look at your management from the bottom to the top. DeVry has no respect for their employers unless your title is in the "Executive" status.
