Approves of CEO

I worked at University of Phoenix full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Individual training and development opportunities, advancement opportunities, excellent benefits package, caring atmosphere, huge network of peers and alumni

Cons

Company growth was not sustainable and there have been several layoffs and changes to structure lately, corporate flow of ideas down from people in position that do not understand student facing roles

Advice to Management

Develop some strong strategies for student facing roles and see these through. Don't blame financial struggles and growth issues on front facing roles.

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

    Pros

    The pay is fair and for the most part everyone gets along really well and it is a fun and inspiring environment to work in. Being around student is always fun, but Phoenix does offer a lot of staff events and other things to keep the ir employees motivated.

    Cons

    There is not a lot of room for growth. The other issue is that a lot of their campuses are closing so you do not really have job security.

    Advice to Management

    Offer more opportunities to grow within the company.

    Great people to work with, many managers were truly good and cared about their staff.

    Cons

    Constant threat of layoffs, work environment becoming increasingly micro-managed to try to save bottom line.

    Get rid of dinosaur thinking and move quickly to regain your status at the top of online education.
