I worked at University of Phoenix full-time for less than a year

Pros

Great training and wonderful people to work with. University of Phoenix promotes team work offering many different events through out the year to break up your work day. This company believes in giving back to the community, they also offer very good benefits.

Cons

For this position you must enjoy phone work. This was difficult for me as I would start at 7 am in the morning and although I would consider myself a happy morning person, that did not necessarily cross over into wanting to talk on the phone that early. This company is also continually changing, so if you can't handle change you may want to look else where for employment.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I was fortunate to have a manager who did not micro-manage, however I saw many managers who did. If you are hiring people who need to be micro-managed maybe you are hiring the wrong people.
