Blind leading the blind
TAC/Level 1 Specialist (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZMarch 27, 2018
Almost all managers do not know what their employees actually do. Management will determine what should happen in that position but having not previously worked that position, no idea how to implement the correct changes.

There is no company direction.
Pros
Benefits
Cons
Management, Senior Management, Company reductions

Gone private
Vice President (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZMarch 15, 2018
Company went private. Has had many rounds of layoffs and location closures in each of the last 7 years. Moral is low for those who have remained as employees.

Dinosaurs eventually become extinct
Full Time Faculty Member (Current Employee) –  Tempe, AZMarch 4, 2018
A typical day at work is that there isn't any work to be had, really. Unfortunately, Apollo is a dinosaur that is ending it's time on earth. Unfortunately, the poorly decided upon buyout really hurt it permanently in reputation and in care for its employees.

Status Quo in a dying industry
Financial Aid Officer (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZJanuary 4, 2018
Title says it all. Was ok to get some light experience and free degree but it was for all intents and purposes a go nowhere environment. Pay rates versus skills required to perform certain jobs do not match industry standards.

Veterans Affairs (VA) Application Specialist (Former Employee) –  Tempe, AZNovember 24, 2017
Poor management and a very unhealthy work environment. We were constantly put on mandatory overtime that would span for months at a time. Management was combative and unwilling to listen to personal concerns. Employee burnout was constant.

Senior Advisor (Former Employee) –  San Bernardino, CAOctober 16, 2017
A typical day at work revolved around making calls to leads that inquired about the company. The hardest part of the job is dealing with the internal politics.

I love uopx
Campus Operations Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Jersey City, NJOctober 10, 2017
The University is a wonderful company to work for. They offer amazing benefits and the opportunity to advance your education as well. I love working with the students, staff, and faculty. My favorite part is meeting that student who doubts that they can go all the way and then seeing them walk across the stage. Just knowing I had a hand in that journey is something I will always treasure.

Great place of growth
Enrollment Counselor/Trainer (Former Employee) –  Irving, TXSeptember 7, 2017
University of Phoenix was a place of a traditional corporate environment. It was competitive, required you to be on your toes, had a heavy element of sales within it (meeting quotas) and everyone was striving to move up.
I grew as an individual and a worker and was exposed to training and development which I love. The sales element was stressful because some of the benefits were connected to your performance but it also provided the opportunity of growth.

Apollo Group
Executive Director (Former Employee) –  Brooklyn Center, MNJuly 11, 2017
Management at Apollo has changed drastically over the years. The founder was a pioneer and innovator. He was a true visionary. The company has seen many changes including the downsizing of the organization.

I worked there for 10 years because I was able to help people with their educational goals. The pay was horrible, but they are closing down in the Houston area.
