Current Employee - Online Faculty in Phoenix, AZ

I have been working at University of Phoenix part-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Training and upgrading faculty skills; commitment to student success; the latest in online technology; excellent faculty and student resources; salary based on years of service, good standing and educational level, and frequent faculty assessment for self-improvement.

Cons

Learning platform has frequent changes and courses are revised. This causes course preparation to be outdated quickly while faculty is scrambling to meet new course requirements; sometimes technological issues are not totally worked out before going "live." It can be difficult to determine who one's immediate supervisor is, there are so many staff members reviewing you. Information is often rapid fire, and it is easy to miss important news or details.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I understand management cannot share all information with employees, but it is often difficult to determine criteria for hiring or advancement, both of which seem to occur in-house rather than through interview. Many of the faculty feel loyalty is one-sided.

    Great employer but be prepared for change even before a process or plan is rolled-out.

    I worked at University of Phoenix full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good pay, tuition benefits are generous, professional development championed, flexible, ahead of the curve in terms of for profit higher Ed.

    Cons

    Change happens constantly. Be prepared to manage it. Local campus support limited. Online dominates changes and decisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is tremendous talent among managers and line level employees. Campus Director and above leave a lot to be desired. Not motivational at all.

    I have been working at University of Phoenix full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I have worked at the University for 5 years. The employees are friendly. Obtaining a degree is basically free, you have to pay a resource fee of $80 a class but this is virtually nothing. They pay relatively well.

    Cons

    Nothing to say, I have worked here for 5 years and feel like I am stuck in the position I am in now. Management is never fired no matter how horrible they are.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a closer look at the managers running the TAC and fire the ones that don't perform.
