I worked at University of Phoenix part-time (more than a year)

Pros

One of the few places where you can teach with a Masters Degree, rather than a Doctorate Degree. Teaching can be rewarding when students put forth the effort. Faculty have some flexibility in scheduling classes, although often requests to teach were very last minute.

Cons

My local area campus (Detroit) was very disorganized. Students were unprepared for college, expected to get their degree too easily, and did not read/study for class. Faculty were expected to clock in and out - I have never been asked to do that before!

    Former Employee - Academic Counselor in Baton Rouge, LA

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

    Pros

    Skills and advancement is encouraged. Self guided work is encouraged and allows individuals personal growth in communication and organizational skills Seeing the student success through advisement given is rewarding. Benefits are competative. The education the students recieve is very applicable to current work situations which prepares the student for future employment readiness.

    Cons

    Realignment of the whole company makes for rocky assurance of future employment. Communication can be slow from the top and even though they promote front line input they do not always ask for it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find the skills of the workers and hone in on them as advocates and support for others. More teamwork is needed. Consistancy of managment roles and expectations are lacking due to the downsizing which places more work on individuals. The business model is not always shown and this creates many gaps in the levels involved
