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 This causes course preparation to be outdated quickly while faculty is scrambling to meet new course requirements; sometimes technological issues are not totally worked out before going "live."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 Management

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.

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

    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 Management

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


  2. My experience was interesting. Learn everything you can in the time you are there to build your value within the company

    Pros

    valuable training co-workers flexible schedule is a huge plus

    Cons

    high turnover rates environmental changes every few months job description changes every few weeks meetings about meetings gossip and rumors are the bread and butter of UOP

    Advice to Management

    Upper management should give an ear to enrollment. Enrollment Advisors are the machine that keep UOP running; replacing EA's every few months or even annually is pretty costly. I'm not sure how much longer UOP will survive with the current management in place.
