Pros

Great place to work; high level of collegiality. Going through a difficult patch since 2010 but taking the right steps to maintain accreditation and grow again

Cons

Recent reductions in national campus and learning center footprint have created a sense of uncertainty about job stability and career prospects for employees

Advice to Management

Consistently give some notice to employees who are going to be laid off so that they can adjust their lives. Even two weeks notice would be helpful, since employees are expected to give employers two weeks notice before leaving their jobs

    Pros

    Working for the University of Phoenix is a great way to enhance a professional career, while helping students seeking to establish a career or change career directions. Adjunct facilitators are typically professionals who have worked in their fields for several years, who have the advantage of sharing their experiences with students. Due to the culture of the university, facilitators also get an opportunity to learn from students. Intensive and useful orientation training and a mentorship is provided prior to entering the classroom. Classes are setup and managed online. Classes are facilitated in person or online. Facilitators are paid per contract, with more than 50% of the pay being issued after the first class and the remaining after the last class is completed. The school provides a wealth of resources for its staff and students, including career development workshops, professional opportunity leads, and information about the latest developments in various careers.

    Cons

    Most of the faculty are adjunct. Very few full time positions are available. Several learning centers will close. This will be a con for those who wish to facilitate classes in person. However, more opportunities may be available for online staff.

    Pros

    Great learning experience. Learning about the " Corporate" world. Learn great sales strategies, learn about the education industry, and get your foot in the door.

    Cons

    Everything is about the student , what about the employees? Employees are not treated well. Its very much a call center enviroment if you work in the online division. Micromanagement is HIGH. If you want the freedom to work in a happy healthy enviroment where you like what you do you are better off working for another company. Employees do not get paid what they are worth, and what hard work they put in.

    Advice to Management

    UOP could be a good company if alot of the culture was changed. Benefits were increased for employees, and Employees were paid what they were worth. Employees need to be valued more !
