Energetic, fun environment, value family
Education Advisor (Current Employee), St. Louis, MOOctober 14, 2014
Pros: fun environment, driven manager
Cons: layoffs consistently
A typical day consist of reaching out to prospect that has pose interest in the university and focus on current students and their needs to assist them to ensure they retain. Management focus on quantity sometimes not quality, however, some managers value quality more and want to focus on doing the right thing. The co-workers are good, dependable team – more... members. The most challenging part of the job is convincing students to remain in school until they earn their degree or try to mentor and train employees that really do not want to work. The most valuable part of the job is helping students to be successful and making a difference in their lives and to see employees excelling because of the work, persistency, and dedication. – less

One of the biggest benefits to working for the University of Phoenix is the ability to take advantage of their education program. The education is discounted or paid for by employer, The environment is a bit controlling. If you like to be micro managed this is a great place to work for.

High Stress and not compensated enough to make it worth it!
Financial Advisor (Current Employee), Phoenix, AZOctober 9, 2014
Pros: i have worked with amazing coworkers and managers!
Cons: too many to discuss!
Things are consistently changing to make advisors jobs more difficult instead of easier. This in return impacts the type of customer service in which our students receive. Numerous advisors are backed up to the point where they cannot reach their students in a proactive or even timely manner. Besides that, there is no chance to advance within the company – more... or earn raises. I would not recommend anyone that doesn't want to be in a stressful environment to work for University of Phoenix as a Finance Advisor. – less

Meeting the students taking care of the attendance and the campus in whole was wonderful. Learn about college tuition and being a great listener. As far as management they will communicate to you, but don't want you to think outside the box. They don't try and see the potential or want you to go a little further in the company. The job is not hard at – more... all it was a wonderful experience. The most enjoyable part were the students. – less
