    I have been working at DeVry University part-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Students are great to work with

    Cons

    Seems to be on a fast downhill slide. Classes are getting smaller and smaller, but I do not know why. DeVry seems to be one of the more ethical companies in for profit education and they make an effort at making decisions in the best interest of their students. But the campus is getting really lonely.

    Advice to Management

    You have a great instructional piece in place. If you can figure out recruiting, you should be able to reverse the downward cycle. Seriously, you have some really sharp, intelligent people on the Academic side. They are really underutilized right now.
