    Pros

    Awesome product, that is online education. Small classroom size, actual professors that teach in the fields they work, staff that genuinely cares for their students.

    Cons

    Extremely poor leadership, very inept management, no opportunity for growth. The company is shrinking because they operated under a flawed model for way too long. They don't promote anymore, and when they did promote you better be both young and good looking. It all about style over substance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to those at the bottom of the organization many of whom actually have a brain and a pulse on the marketplace. Get rid of about 70% of the front-line managers, they are worthless. Enough of the arrogance and the sense of royalty that is constantly on display by those in upper-middle and upper management. Also, enough of this crazy flavor of the month strategery for improvement that you are constantly putting on those at the bottom, we have not taken any of this seriously for some time. You better realize that our competition is kicking our a$$ and if you all don't find a way to compete especially from a price standpoint, then the company will be half of its size today five years from now.

    Current Contractor - Adjunct Faculty in Phoenix, AZ

    I have been working at University of Phoenix as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    University of Phoenix will keep you busy with courses all year, depending on which school you are teaching in. It has been great supplemental income and the students are fun to work with.

    Cons

    It is not very personal, however, if you are great at working independently, you will enjoy teaching here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would love to see some reaching out to the faculty in a more personal manner. Even though I know my feedback is read and considered, it would be nice to have someone that knows me more personally.
