I worked at University of Phoenix

Pros

Raises are annual base on percentage 1% to 5% based on performance. No need to clock-in/out. Managers don't make you feel guilty for calling in sick, 5 weeks on vacation annually...WOW! Trusting non-micromanagers. Therefore, I never feel like I'm walking on eggshells. Observes 10 paid holidays.Fair treatment of employees in the Student Services department. Great benefits. Flexible scheduling. Not a whole lot of politics in this dept. Stability in Student Services dept. Professional and helpful team of coworkers and managers. We are treated with respect.

Cons

They want the best employees for LOW pay. Expect priceless benefits like positive culture but don't expect competitive pay. UOP pays employees below market salary rate. Growth in the Bay Area is so competitive that you will likely have to relocate in order to grow. Student Services Coordinator position is under a glass ceiling which hinders promotional growth. That is, unless you have a close relationship with hiring manager. "kissing butt" is required to move up in the company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Create a career plan for employees so they are allowed to grow. Coach them. Increase compensation at $40K starting since Apollo Group starts receptionists at $40K minimum.

    Pros

    Great job if your looking for "free" education. Remember to consider the other areas you are missing out on by receiving free tuition. I would say the salary is competitve and overall it is an ok place to work.

    Cons

    Company has become very bureaucratic and there is limited opportunity in actually climbing the corporate ladder here unless you are in the "in crowd" with upper management. The company ethics really push the boundaries with industry standards which can be hard at times to accept if you have morals. It can be a good move to work for this company however, proceed with caution.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some of the upper management seem very incompetent. Some management perform meetings in a very unprofessional manner. There is a high turnover rate of the lower level managers as well which is unstable for the employees.

    Pros

    Great benefits package, good salary , most coworkers are pleasant and supportive

    Cons

    Be careful of management! Favoritism runs wild! If your manager likes you and your results your goldent - if you need help in certain areas or just don't "jive" you will be harassed !!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sort out the bad seeds! The good of many is being undermined by a few. Anger and contempt is not a management style!
