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

Pros

The tuition benefit is great, employees are encouraged to take advantage of it
There were several initiatives to promote employee financial, physical and emotional well being
Good 401k policy
If you show initiative, they will invest heavily in you

Cons

Health insurance isn't too great

Advice to Management

Rightsizing should the the last resort. As a sign of goodwill, how about pledging to reduce your salaries until the situation becomes better. This would instill a sense of comradery

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

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, great people to work with, lots of options for horizontal movement, plenty of locations to transfer to (Chicago area)

    Cons

    Very micromanaged in finance department, constant changes (downsizing, moving to new locations), limited vertical movement, poor training (you rely more on the people who have been here a long time to teach you things than you do from trainers or managers)

    Advice to Management

    Provide better service to students by giving proper training to employees. As employees, we feel helpless and embarrassed that we can't offer more help to a student because training is so quick/generic and team leads don't know a lot of the answers. There is also poor communication between key departments, particularly finance and operations, which slows down how fast we can service students.
