    Former Employee - Enrollment Advisor in Westlake, OH

    I worked at University of Phoenix full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I met and worked with some great people that I count as friends. Quality education.

    Cons

    Not to sound redundant, but poor corporate leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For an organization with as many corporate leaders with so many advanced degrees, I am very disappointed with the lazy fashion they chose in this most recent rounds of lay offs. Sadly, people were going to lose their jobs anyway, but you would think the company would have chosen to retain top performers. I enjoyed my time there but was sad to see it end this way for so many people across the country.

    Current Employee - Adjunct Faculty in Phoenix, AZ

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

    Pros

    Make a difference in students' lives; interact with diverse group of faculty and students; ability to teach and manage online classes with flexibility and ability to continue learning and developing skills and knowledge base. Dynamic discussions! Challenging and rewarding!

    Cons

    Online positions are part-time adjunct, no commitment or benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work with and use faculty for input and collaboration. We are the people in the classroom, and we care about our students and the University.
