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

Pros

Currently in 2013 there is now room for advancement and training that was not available before. Admissions department pay has been lowered, but so has the workload for a more balanced work life. Academic departments are more streamlined and not as confusing as it once was during the time of my employment there. If you have the right management in place, it can be a great place to work.

Cons

The problems can be favoritism which ran rampant during my employment period of 2004 - 2009. And accountability for one's own work, and plenty of management back door dealings that we're borderline libel. From what I've seen and heard as of now, some of those practices have been eliminated, or they have taken strides to get ride of it. Unfortunately, there are still some bad seeds in the company.

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

    Pros

    Some of the greatest people I've worked with.

    Cons

    Lazy, insecure, click mentality management that will do anything to cover their own behinds and protect the positions they no longer work hard to deserve to be in.

    Advice to Management

    Fire all middle management who have been there for 20+ years and are fearful of new talent "taking" their positions.
