    Former Employee - Mid-Level Manager in Diamond Bar, CA

    I worked at University of Phoenix full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Most staff and students are awesome to work with and if you stay open to it you can really watch people grow on a daily basis. Tuition reimbursement is never a bad thing and you can definitely work full-time and go to school.

    Cons

    If you don't adapt well to constant change this is probably not the place for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sit for one week in each student facing role every year when you are working on your SWOT analysis. This is the only way you will truly understand what staff and students are experiencing. Previous CEO's did this and the company thrived. Sad that you haven't done this more often and in multiple campus locations because they are each unique. Don't make decisions without this kind of hands-on experience because you only serve to alienate good people who actually care about helping students achieve their goals.
