Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at DeVry University full-time (More than a year)

Pros

decent pay for coming straight out of college and pretty good benefits

Cons

lack of experience on managements part...we're are sales men and and women selling a 72,000 dollar education to ignorant people who really don't know any better. Devry easily makes at least 8-10,000 grand on people who start classes and within a year drop out and are left with the bill. All the while, Devry still receives their money. It is a corporation who doesn't care about it's employees or the students. Meanwhile, Daniel Hamburger is making millions and becoming more greedy by the minute.

    "Very redundant work, with no real incentives to advance."

    Pros

    Good work-life balance. Good benefits, especially if you are looking to go to school. After 6 months of employment DeVry will cover 100% of your tuition and 90% of a dependents tuition.

    Cons

    Very redundant work. Management tries to run the business as if it were a commission paying position which wouldn't be bad if it were a commission position but it is not. There is no incentive, but all of the pressure to perform. Many of the managers have very poor management skills, and since they are younger with no prior management experience, they tend to micro-manage, and do not know how to truly motivate their staff.

    Advice to Management

    Come up with some real incentives for performing well, and do a better job of vetting potential Assistant Directors. Do not promote Assistant Directors based on the number of students they register, but on the management, and leadership abilities that they posses.
