    I have been working at DeVry University full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Work with Top-Notch, High Quality Faculty. On any given campus, Faculty have thousands of years of relevant real-world work experience, unlike schools with pure academics teaching. Students are above average, they work hard, and deserve the great jobs they get after graduation.

    Cons

    DeVry is the premiere private sector educator. Others in the market space dilute the segment and give it a bad perception. The truth is that the education at DeVry is as good as the professors that teach there, who are superb and can stack up against any Ivy League school. The problem is that too many outside political powers have targeted private sector colleges to perpetuate the misconception that public schools are better.

    Advice to Management

    Give Faculty more autonomy and opportunities to grow. The Faculty are the most mission-critical component of the organization. DeVry could not exist without the highly experienced and talented teachers that work hard to develop our students into highly functional contributors to our workforce.
