    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    valuable training
    co-workers
    flexible schedule is a huge plus

    Cons

    high turnover rates
    environmental changes every few months
    job description changes every few weeks
    meetings about meetings
    gossip and rumors are the bread and butter of UOP

    Advice to Management

    Upper management should give an ear to enrollment. Enrollment Advisors are the machine that keep UOP running; replacing EA's every few months or even annually is pretty costly. I'm not sure how much longer UOP will survive with the current management in place.


  2. "Great Student Experience, Disappointing Company Experience"

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

    Pros

    Able to make a difference in peoples lives
    Help people make positive change
    Work with great people - they hire awesome employees

    Cons

    Dishonest regarding job requirements
    Inadequate training
    Telemarketing sales environment
    Dishonest about earning potential as well as Growth potential
    Mentally abusive environment
    Lack of care for employees - old and new

    Advice to Management

    Honesty will take this company far. The Upper management is seemingly not aware of practices - there is a disconnect with that advisors do with the students and what the company goals are. It takes away from the abilities of great advisors.
