I have been working at University of Phoenix full-time (more than an year)

Pros

great benefits, sick and vacation time. The company is generally good, and has great intentions to help students and be a positive influence on the community and its students...

Cons

lower pay than most universities, no incentives, little to no upward mobility, the company will release new plans that are not thought out clearly and they end up doing more harm than good, or they retract the plan later and confuse the employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

don't let the good ones go!

    I have been working at University of Phoenix full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great training, experience, hours, pay...

    Cons

    Feels very unstable, some managers are WAY over the top with micromanaging, most people really don't feel good about what they are doing for students.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to get better students in the door and they will retain better!

    Sales job, not a true advisory role.

    Pros

    New facility and they finally updated computers.

    Cons

    Micro managed, sales oriented job. Not what education should be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep burning yourselves out for the billionaire owner. One day you will realize there is a better way.
    Just educate and profits will follow.
