I worked at DeVry University full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Great pay! My pay was awesome, loved it. The work was do-able. I loved the students and my interaction with them. Company had good benefits. I was starting to use my education benefits....BUT

Cons

I got laid off after 9 months! And i had to choose between my severance and never working for Devry again- messed up! I didn't take the severance thinking I could get back, not even giving me a interview!? Managers and senior staff get raises only. Speaking up can get you in trouble.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

None, because they don't listen anyways. They do nothing but walk around all day and "act" busy. At the end of the day, they are the ones that get the raises and lay off hard workers.

    I worked at DeVry University full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Same as previously stated, outstanding and dedicated staff, nothing more to say about the lack of current management.

    Cons

    They've all been mentioned before, this would be redundant and not productive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe you could learn something from Carnival?

    I have been working at DeVry University full-time

    Pros

    Great coworkers. Good benefits. Top of line technology and tools, to assist with job responsibilities.

    Cons

    Heavy micromanagement. Unrealistic expectations in regards to production. It is hard to get promoted from within.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It does not matter because the high level management execs, are out of touch with the reality of what happens with the day to day interactions within in the company, and they are too focused on reports to realize that reports are only a piece of what is really happening within the company.
