Current Employee - Online Faculty in Phoenix, AZ

I have been working at University of Phoenix part-time (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 This causes course preparation to be outdated quickly while faculty is scrambling to meet new course requirements; sometimes technological issues are not totally worked out before going "live."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.

    Current Employee - Senior Quality Assurance Analyst in Phoenix, AZ

    I have been working at University of Phoenix full-time (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.
