I have been working at DeVry University full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

I have some great co-workers, though they're all jumping ship at record rates.

Cons

No room for growth. Despite some other reviews, pay is only somewhat comparable to other higher ed institutions. People are quitting quickly, yet no rehires so work is piling up. Overwhelming to say the least.

Advice to Management

Your staff can't help your students if they're buried in paperwork continuously. A staff never feeling like they're caught up is NOT GOOD! You will continue to lose really good people who are really good at what they will do. Other companies will value their contributions.

    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Provides education to many first-generation students who don't have the as many options as more traditional students. Opportunity for personal improvement through training courses. Ability to make a difference and help students achieve their educational goals.

    Cons

    Politics; lack of communication between upper management and employees as well home office and various campuses or centers. Salary is below median levels.

    Advice to Management

    When you lay off 250+ people, why do you then give employees who remained pay raises and bonuses? Cleaner execution and removal of people who make themselves look good but don't manage employees or resources appropriately. Think long-term and not so focused on short term admissions goals.
