    Pros

    Stabie place of employment. People locally are good to one another.

    Cons

    Leadership is not diverse on high level. All white.

    Advice to Management

    Diversify leadership team in Phoenix. All white is a clear indication of unfair practices.

    Pros

    Team oriented environment, excellent on-site cafeteria, tuition benefits after 6 months, concierge offers discounts to staff, the pay / benefits are pretty good, and work / life balance is okay.

    Cons

    University of Phoenix was put on notice by the Higher Learning Commission in 2013. Job stability may hinge on the outcome of HLC's meeting at the end of this month.

    Pros

    Friendly work environment. At times demanding, but respectful of work life balance. Fair pay and competitive benefits. Interesting technologies and products.

    Cons

    While it varies project to project, this is a large slow moving company. A lot of ideas are developed and subsequently dropped due to bureaucracy.

    Advice to Management

    Promote innovation by allowing small teams to own products from requirements stage, through development and on to support.

    Pros

    One of largest organizations in Phoenix to gain experience at.

    Cons

    Strange University of Phoenix vs Apollo hierarchy. Management realized too late that the industry is changing.

    Pros

    Great educational benefits, good team members, and enjoyed working with students

    Cons

    Executive leadership should visit campuses more and need more open communication about company changes.

    Advice to Management

    Sit in on actual calls with enrolled students to hear their concerns 1st hand

    Pros

    Had a great team and really liked the co-workers. The Innovators Accelerator product we worked on was pretty cool, but didn't receive the sales support it deserved.

    Cons

    Figuring out how to acquire the resources to finish projects was a challenge. Frequent re-structuring meant lots of instability of who managed our group.
