I worked at DeVry University full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

My team at that time and helping student find financial resources that would help assist in their education

Cons

Consist frictions between academic, registrar and admission. It seemed as if everyone wanted to pass the buck and not take responsibility. In addition, people were starting to do things because it was coming so driven by admission and getting student enrolled and not helping or considered with if Devry was the right fit for that student.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus on quality and not dollar signs!

    I have been working at DeVry University full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    At my location, their are various comittees and stretch assignments that you can get involved with that are responsible for growing the organization. Decent pay and great benefits.

    Cons

    It's all a numbers game and people can become very evil when trying to reach their goals. Absolutely NO work/life balance. If you are good, they will suck the blood out of you!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start paying your top employees better and treat them better or they will continue to LEAVE!

    I have been working at DeVry University full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    For full-time faculty - great schedule; reasonably competitive pay; make sure you work for a good dean -- I am happy to have a great one. Most faculty are good to work with. A lot of long tenured individuals. No pressure to publish.

    Cons

    As full-time faculty, you will be teaching a lot more than at a typical research university -- the schedule is still good though. Not a lot of faculty are interested in research and there is no departmental funding to do so.
    Some administrators require faculty to rigidly stick to pre-designed curriculum, which can be good start from new instructors, but can be annoying for more experienced ones.
    Will probably be required to teach online from time-to-time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage research activity; hire more PhD's to be full-time instructors and let the experienced, qualified instructors be creative in delivering top quality material to their students. Each campus should be allowed to be distinguish itself based on its strengths.
