    I worked at University of Phoenix for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Love the students! The students are motivated to learn and receptive to constructive feedback. The Administration when I was hired was awesome. They made attempts to implement changes based on faculty recommendations. The classes were instructor-led at a local campuses. I loved the interaction with students.

    Cons

    The 5-week structure was too aggressive which requires a great deal of paper work and time for faculty. I would have to spend time to help students due to the aggressive workload.
