I have been working at DeVry University full-time

Pros

DeVry University values their employees. Pay is competitive, benefits are great, and the employees are wonderful. Due to challenges in the industry, they have rolled out a solid growth plan that will help it remain the industry leader for years.

Cons

The higher education industry as a whole has been struggling over the last few years; DeVry is not immune from these challenges. Depending on the location, management can be inconsistent.

Advice to Management

You should focus on ensuring that the DeVry values are being instituted across all departments, and most importantly, at all locations.

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

    Pros

    It gives you chance to enroll in their many programs.

    Cons

    I worked in facilities, their was never going to be any advancement in that dept. only if you signed up to take a class. The bad thing about that is, your fee of $64.000 is covered, but the minute you are no longer an employee, you have a $64.000 dollar loan debt you have to pay back for the rest of your life! You're stuck with paying that amount back, because a student loan can't go to bankruptcy, you have to pay it back!

    Advice to Management

    They don't communicate with certain staff, all they are concern about is who the next person they can get in and promise them a brighter future. Then when they graduate with their degrees, and they try to find work, there isn't any, all they got to show for rest of their life's is a student (debt) loan they will have to pay back, and that will be a debt that can continue for the rest of their life's. Like who has $64.000 dollars to pay back a student (debt) loan?

    I worked at DeVry University full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits, decent salary, no workload stress. They also have a great wellness program in place and flex time is easy to get into.

    Cons

    Poor management, rash decisions (changes implemented without thorough consideration of the overall impact it would have. Little opportunity to move within - or even to other locations (Carrington, etc). Layoffs were not handled well and students were penalized as a result.

    Advice to Management

    Hire appropriate managers in order to facilitate a campus correctly. It seems that the people steering the campus often don't have any idea on what they are doing.
