I have been working at University of Phoenix as a contractor (More than 5 years)

Pros

Excellent classes, good training, supportive faculty forums, increasing pay scale. Excellent platform to teach with, good materials, more freedom within the classes, good peer review system.

Cons

automatied scheduling--it's a bit of a problem without the human element there. No healthcare benefits for adjuncts.

Advice to Management

Go back to the human schedulers, support your senior faculty with more classes rather than fewer. Get a health benefits package for adjuncts.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at University of Phoenix full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Offers above average healthcare benefits
    Pays for undergrad degree and portion of graduate degrees for employees
    Great product, talk and work with people who want to change their lives through education
    Have a gym on site

    Cons

    Most of their talented employees don't want to promote due to lack of compensation for managers (they can make much more as and adviser) which results in the company having bad management.
    Constant change in compensation, leadership, performance appraisals, etc.
    Promote based on "competencies" a.k.a "who you know", rather than actual performance data.
    I have been there 7 years and have exceeded any performance expectation they have given me, yet they are now making me work Sat and Sun. Basically tenure/performance means nothing, again its about who you know.
    Company is declining, no promotion opportunities.
    Company recently moved all workers from salary/independent workers to hourly/call center/micro managed mode

    Advice to Management

    Go back to a piecework compensation system like you hard when the company was growing. Pay/promote people that are doing a good job and get rid of the people that are not, simple as that.
