I have been working at University of Phoenix full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

The Salary and benefits are good.

Cons

Morale is terrible, and they don't really seem to know what to do to help the University to succeed in this new environment. They throw a lot of things out there and hope they stick, but there isn't a lot of follow through or real commitment to initiatives.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be sure that middle management is communicating the same message you are! What is presented by the executives sounds like a great message, but the ideas are not communicated nor reinforced by Middle Management. In turn, front line managers get mixed messages and there is no clear vision of what success looks like in our own role and in the role of our employess.

    Current Employee - Faculty  in  Phoenix, AZ
    Current Employee - Faculty in Phoenix, AZ

    I have been working at University of Phoenix as a contractor for more than 8 years

    Pros

    I enjoy the interaction with studensts. I enjoy helping people who are trying hard to improve their life situations through education. The university provides workshops to expand expertise in teaching methods. The classroom technology is very good and makes it easy to be organized and effective.

    Cons

    Fewer and fewer classes are being scheduled. Enrollment has sharply declined. Management practices directly affecting faculty are not clearly explained.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the faculty know how scheduling decisions are made. Let the faculty know how approved courses are determined. Let the individual faculty member know when changes are made to his or her approved courses.

    Current Employee - Enrollment Advisor in Phoenix, AZ

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

    Pros

    If you are looking for a steady job with 40 hours, you will find it here. The opportunity to work full time and go to school to earn your degree is definitely here.

    Cons

    There is nowhere for you to go, management opportunities are slim and even the option to make additional money is almost abandoned altogether.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create more places for strong employees to grow into instead of drawing names from a hat for promotions.
