    I worked at University of Phoenix full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    It's a job

    Great Benefits

    Good starting/entry salary

    Cons

    This is absolutely the WORST company I have ever worked for!!! Backstabbing, gossip, lying-and that's from management!!

    Micromanaging to the 100th power: you not only clock in and out, you have to clock out (AUX) each and every single time you step away from your desk. If you go to the bathroom, to the break room, to the copy room, or even to ask a question to a coworker in another cubicle you better be sure to AUX in and out or you're in trouble.

    They could care less about students - it's all about enrollments. They claim it's not a sales job because of government regulations, but trust that Enrollment is nothing but hardcore sales and cold calls.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just get a grip and find a new profession. stop the "it's all about the students" mumbo jumbo when we all know it's all about sales; not enrollments, but sales.

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

    Pros

    Great training in various industries (Healthcare, education, business, technology, social sciences, etc), higher ed, fin aid, accreditation, etc. Employees bond over the shared dissent they have for the upper management.

    Cons

    Underpaid workforce. A lot of responsibility for a little bit of money. Clueless, incompetent management who fail to take responsibility. Favors Mormon believers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to retain your workforce throughout the madness, incompetency, company sinking, pay them more! And treat them better.
