    Former Employee - Finance Counselor in Phoenix, AZ
    Former Employee - Finance Counselor in Phoenix, AZ

    I worked at University of Phoenix full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    They train you fairly well in the beginning so that when you get assigned to your division, you are pretty much doing the same thing you have already done but now you are actually interacting with students.

    Cons

    The pay isn't great, even if you have a degree.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My manager was very kind and helpful so I can't really speak negatively about managers.

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

    Pros

    Decent pay, lots of attempts at building culture. Lately I hear there is a lot of stability in the position.

    Cons

    For-profit in the hardcore business sense and education arent a great marriage. Invariably for-profit schools try to push less than qualified/prepared into "school". Leads to some moral dillemas as a enrollment advisor.

    Pros

    Great opportunity to work local leading companies on developing their talent and providing adults with a way to enroll into a degree program

    Higher education and the restrictions for the state I sold products (degree programs, training)

    develop a focus on all aspects of training - companies needed a lot of support in many areas of employee development

    I have been working at University of Phoenix

    Pros

    Tons of paid vacation, almost every govt holiday off paid. Easy peezy job. They have team builders again (took them away for a while) and it's really not a lot of stress. A great place to get your feet wet in a corporate type environment.

    Cons

    There is absolutely no growth within Enrollment (or anywhere else for that matter). And if you like socialism then this is the job for you. Meaning you get paid the same as everyone else no matter how hard you work or well you do you won't be given a raise or really any recognition. They want you to show up and do your job and that about sums it up. They have shift bids. This is where if you are at the bottom rung of the ladder you will pretty much get a crap pyramid shift.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give some sort of incentive for those that are outperforming everyone else. Get rid of those that just sit there and do nothing.
