Wouldn't recommend this place.
Adjunct Professor (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILMay 7, 2016
Horrible. Upper management including the President is running this place into the ground. This school was once a good school until they fired all of faculty and compensated the void with friends of the President from the for profit sector. The school is so bad when they have to advertise to get students. You don't see DePaul advertising for students. Horrible culture of distrust. I advised students to go elsewhere.

national college of education (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILJanuary 25, 2016
I worked for NLU in an administrative and then a faculty capacity for ten years. The faculty is caring, knowledgeable, flexible, and creative. I can't say the same for the rest of university. There are few supports for administrator job security, the university has expanded and contracted its staff several times, and leadership at the top is poor. The pay is comically low, and career advancement opportunities are limited.
Pros
excellent faculty
Cons
low pay, limited career advancement
