Current Employee - Enrollment Manager in Phoenix, AZ

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

Pros

Free tuition, many great people to work with, cafe onsite, fairly generous paid time off.

Cons

Difficult to move into new areas internally, chronic change and flurry of similar looking initiatives. Restricted growth in terms of advancing, due to restructuring many positions are not replaced once vacated.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More emphasis on senior level leadership development would be helpful for director level and above, in order to streamline values, initiatives and business strategies. Consistency and communication could be improved. Keep investing in and taking care of enrollment folks...they, after all, drive the business. Also, looking at creative ways to increase employee engagement don't rule out telework....it can be cost effective and make employees work life balance much more attainable.

    Current Employee - Adjunct Online Instructor in Phoenix, AZ

    I have been working at University of Phoenix part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Consistent rules, straightforward policies, I work online which is a big plus. The university has come a long way in making sure the students are really enrolled to go to school, instead of just to collect financial aid, which used to be a problem a few years ago.

    Cons

    There just isn't as much work as there used to be. I usually teach two classes at a time now, with a few breaks through the year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More personal, individual connections with supervisors, would go a long way for morale.

    Current Employee - Senior Enrollment Advisor in Colorado Springs, CO

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

    Pros

    %100 tuition assistance, great benefits, lots of training available

    Cons

    Promotion process lacking communication, management not always on same page communicating things down the chain of command.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change is constant with this company and needs way better communication. Communication can be horrible when things role out and different parts of the organization are always on different pages. Everything needs to be the same across all departments in terms of integrity as well.
