    I worked at University of Phoenix full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    With the University of Phoenix, you get a free college education. They cover 100% of tuition. You only pay a technology or resource fee for each class. They pay well, have a comfortable culture, and emphasize team building.

    Cons

    There is a lot of emphasis on sales, regarding of the position in which you get hired. Even a finance counselor is expected to recruit new students and boost the bottom line.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let people focus on their area of expertise. not everyone is comfortable being salespeople.
