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

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
