I have been working at DeVry University full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Besides slightly better health insurance then other employers, they offer the same benefit package as most other employers

Cons

Bad pay, cancerous office environment, unskilled managers with big egos, constant rush to push students to register for classes, lot of pressure and urgency, bad new hire training, inconsistent messaging, mandatory late night and weekend work, segregated employees with lots of gossip and rumors, dirty office, poor facilities, free education for employees is really not free with a lot of stipulations, too many more cons not enough space, dead end career

Advice to Management

    Pros

    Education benefits are ok. Almost free tuition to continue your education their programs. Quality of education is good for those students that can handle it.

    Cons

    Micromanagers who have no idea what they are doing. Constantly tell employees to do things against compliance just to recruit 1 new student. Say they want everyone to get promoted and grow with the company but will make up excuses and intentionally give you bad performance reviews so that you don't get promoted or get a decent raise. Never recognize employees for a job well done. Always focus on the negative, unless we make goal and then it's a win for the whole school. School has cut so many employees that the quality of service we boast about having just doesn't exist in all departments. Tell you that they care about your work life balance but then insist you work overtime without reporting it so they don't have to pay it. If you want to be in higher education, do it through a state institution.

    Advice to Management

    Show appreciation to your employees. Do as you say your going to.

    Pros

    Good benefits for FT employees. The education provided is great. Being a part of some of the student achievement stories really drives you to keep doing what you do.

    Cons

    It's not very easy to grow. There can be a little politics in promotions. There's not a lot of development. Usually there is an overwhelming amount of work.

    Advice to Management

    Have better downward communication, and develop your people. Learn to recognize employees the way they want to be appreciated.
