  • Great benefits, somewhat flexible schedule, plenty of vacation accumulation if you've been here as long as I have (in 17 reviews)

Cons
  • Recently, the company's flagship, the University of Phoenix, was put on Notice by the Higher Learning Commission (in 8 reviews)

  • Upper management is so adept to change that these changes seem to have no rhyme or reason (in 12 reviews)

    Pros

    Paid well. Tons of training and feedback. Great team of people I was privileged to work with.

    Cons

    Too many changes in too short a period of time. Created constant disruption of work flow and productivity.

    Advice to Management

    Upper level management (VP's especially): Listen as carefully to your frontline workers as you do to your stockholders!

    Pros

    The atmosphere was laid back and in a year my tuition would have been reimbursed.

    Cons

    The company decided to phase out some of their campuses and the employees were not warned at all. We were walked out the day we were told and the tuition compensation wasn't even given to those that were under a year.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with employees

  11. Good place to develop your skills
