When the Sept 12th DeVry Town Hall was canceled last week I thought there was a foul smell. That turned into the "sacrifice" that Rob Paul and his marketing director supposedly made earlier today ... or whenever. Three years and nothing but a downward spiral will do that to a career. COO James B. is the new person in charge. Is this the beginning of the "rightsizing" most (if not all) of us have been looking for since May or earlier? I do not think we will have to wait long to find out!

My co worker just sent me a link to this. I will be laid off as of 1.31 as well as the rest of my team thanks to Shelley Gardner and Rob Paul. I am so angry but I think there’s something better out there for me. These people ruin lives and think about nothing but themselves
I know this is old but damn I can't stand Rob Paul. Worked with him many years ago and that guy would sell his mom's soul for a buck. Zero integrity and spine. I remember him proudly telling us that when his boss says jump he says how high. He would do anything to anybody if it meant that he could climb the corporate ladder.
Well, he did have a master's from university of Phoenix....it's going to be amazingly difficult to find someone else with such stellar credentials and a similar toy collection. How are we going to pay Peter now if we can't rob Paul?
Won't somebody please let ME run a company into the ground so that I can collect a multimillion dollar payout?!?!
It's turned into an oppressive work culture, always having to look over your shoulder and hope you aren't next to be on the chopping block.
So glad I'm out of there! Got a job after my layoff that makes more money starting out than I did after many years at DeFraud. I'm glad it happened because it gave me the push to find something so much better.
"shadow of the leader" wondering what was that all about...
I got let go in May after 15 yrs with the company. The culture has changed and so has the management. Blessing that they let me go cause the place is not fun to work at.
They've been right sizing all along. One or 2 at a time so nobody notices! That Lisa's a sneaky one! Managers are even worse than ever now. Watch your back! And don't let this horrible place tell you what you aren't.
