    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in New Orleans, LA

    I worked at University of Phoenix full-time (more than 8 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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

    Current Employee - Adjunct Faculty in Reston, VA
    Current Employee - Adjunct Faculty in Reston, VA

    I have been working at University of Phoenix part-time (less than an year)

    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.
