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 coworkers. That's about it

    Cons

    Major micromanaging, undercover sales job, selling a overpriced product, sterile work environment, awful hours, very low starting salary regardless of how many years of experience or level of education you have, coworkers take advantage of free education, but wonder how much getting a degree from Uopx is really worth, esp. In certain parts of the country. You feel like a peon dialing away for hours at a time, calling the same people over and over, sometimes twice a week. Truly a telemarketing job. I can imagine the only people who enjoy this job are getting paid well because they were part of the old merit based pay. At this point, there are no redeeming factors to work at Uopx. No fun work environment, pay is low, job is a telemarketing job, and hours stink!

    Advice to Management

    You want to fool people into thinking they really are professionals, stop micromanaging! Pay for experience and education. Employees may be more productive if they enjoy what they do and feel valued.
