All departments are top heavy with worthless managers and directors. Any of these people without degrees need to be walked out first.

Let's Get to Firing!

There is a double standard which exists at the P. Managers holding people accountable for aux times and codes yet these people are nonexistent throughout the day. Every one of them covers one another's a$$. It is a disgrace how $hit is run. How about holding management accountable as well. If only the long term shareholders knew about how much money is thrown away on these people. Directors are even worse! None of them will handle or resolve issues either. Basically you are expected to lie to the students and pray that the student drops or gets their money and runs before you actually have to deal with a real issue. Managers refuse to call with any escalations. Students will leave them 10 voice mails with no response. God forbid they actually do have to pick up a phone, it is automatically your fault that the student is po. Regardless of the systems being complete trash and policies which are piecemealed together as problems occur. I feel the systems have been designed to be so convoluted that if anyone outside came in to witness what was actually going on, they would say fu©k this after 20 minutes. The school needs to be shuttered like Corinthian. Somehow this farce is allowed to continue. With Harkin out the door, who knows how long this bull$hit will continue.

Let's play find a manager. How many times a day does your manager vanish, has a supposed meeting or simply just does not show up for days on end

??? I bet most of you can attest to this.

So glad I quit my Masters program....

I'll never forget an executive advisor telling me that if I didn't get my free Masters degree I'd regret it. Nope, I feel that the time spent playing cod was a better use of my time. This schools a joke and nothing more than a PELL ATM for crack heads.

Those 'educated' at UOP

If you earned--hahaha--a bachelor's degree from this high school you will never find a good job again. Those that have been and will be laid off--you might find a job at your local supermarket as a deli assistant or a janitor at the local community college. Real employers don't hire for profit idiots. Why do you think WFS had so much trouble inking deals with major corporations? Employers have seen the idiots that have graduated this dump and have concluded that this is not a school that offers anything in the way of rigor and training. Hiring managers just laugh when they receive a résumé from a for profit graduate.

Come on people, our glass door rating is at 2.8. We can do better than this. This thing should be below 2 already. Almost makes me think the

company has a staff of trolls dedicated to propping up the reviews. Come on people, we need your help in telling the truth. Let's get this thing below DTV's rank. Surely they have nothing on us in terms of legitimacy. Everyone knows this is a pure cess pool. Especially the enrollment tards, right Desiree! BTW, hope they draw your straw on the next sh!tcan session.

I guess that's fair. If the Huffington Post was smart, they'd start liking in with the hundreds being laid off. One or two? No story. 100 angry former employees? Now you've got some material.

Study on Happiness Released

The results of the study are summarized below--Happiness is not achieved by income level, personal assets, career position or dwelling size. Economic or social accomplishments play no role in a person's happiness level. **********What does create true happiness is treating others with respect and kindness. ***************No wonder UoP is such a miserable place. Leaders abuse the staff. The staff feels compelled to lie to students to reach personal goals.... Getting laid off , losing the check , will be the first step in feeling better about yourself

It’s not your fault. It never was.

To anyone who’s been laid off in the last decade or so: I have a simple message comprised of five words that I hope may be of a little solace: Say goodbye to the guilt. It will never help you, and dollars to doughnuts you didn’t deserve it in the first place. Being laid off is hard enough in terms of the economic and emotional consequences without the added weight of secretly feeling: I deserved this. I wasn’t really a good performer and after all these years they finally caught up with me. To this I say: Forget about that line of thinking. In the vast majority of cases it’s simply not true. There’s a convenient fiction out there that most layoffs are somehow fully rationally engineered, an organization’s excellent opportunity to effectively “thin the herd” and let go of its weakest performers. Well, sure, there’s some of that now and then. But if anyone thinks our era’s mega-layoffs – with tens of thousands of people regularly being shown the door – are an orderly rational Sunday walk in the park, that’s, as we used to say when I was growing up in Boston, wicked far from the truth. Here’s who an organization loses in a massive layoff: It loses some of its worst performers, it loses some of its best performers, plus a whole lot of solid people who know their business in between. To inject a little scale, here are a few of the sobering staff reduction numbers since the Great Implosion of 2008. Hey, I get it. I’m no Pollyanna. An organization has to be cost-competitive. If it’s not, ultimately everyone loses. Game over, wealth destroyed, we all go home. But on the other hand neither is slicing – where many of our best management minds are relentlessly trained these days – a viable, forward-thinking, long-term growth strategy. Never was or will be. As one who’s at times been in the middle of these operations as a former corporate executive, who’s worked directly with the smart lads and lasses at McKinsey and BCG and other ‘rightsizing’ specialists, who’s seen colleagues, family and friends’ lives turned upside down (and yes literally lost) in businesses from airlines to education to law to insurance to banking to benefits consulting to you name it, I can safely say, in the midst of Major Layoff Mode, it’s never a purely rational play. It’s a jungle out there. It’s the random chaos of the universe. It’s grinding historic economic forces at work. Decisions often become political or personal. It can be a chance to even old scores. Most of all, at the end of the day it’s every dog for himself. So if you’ve been caught up in this vortex, do your best not to take it personally. Comet Photo credit: OliverN5 I say this because the psychological costs of being laid off are so insidious and long lasting. For better or for worse, I talk to people about this topic a lot. These are the kind of things I hear. “You thought you did a good job, but did you really? Were those performance evaluations really valid? Apparently not, because you got laid off…” “There are constant reminders – your old drive to work, running into former colleagues at a restaurant. Old colleagues ask, ‘What ARE you doing now?’ Awkwardness ensues. Then over time former colleagues who were friends don’t call anymore. You wonder what the rumor mills are churning out about you at your former employer…” “You wake up at 2 in the morning, unable to sleep because your reality has changed. You’re now unemployed, a non-contributing member of society, a pariah to the company, a failure. The feeling of failure will fade somewhat, but everywhere you go you’re reminded your world has changed. Every form asks for a ‘Work Number.’ Workplace: Unemployed! The very term strikes fear into the heart of Type A overachievers…” Multiply these sentiments by millions and it’s a formidable collective weight for a society to bear. It’s a chill headwind against recovery. Darned if I know how to quantify it, but I do know that in a Doldrums Economy this kind of collective psychic anguish isn’t helping us grow. So to return to my original point, my little Open Letter: The sooner you lose any trace of misdirected guilt, the sooner you as an individual can start to heal and move forward constructively. Update the resume. Look for a new job. Or take a deep breath. Take a break. Hike the Appalachian Trail. Read War and Peace. Spend more time with the kids. Go to a museum or a ballgame. Do whatever you really like to but never had time for. Or work harder than ever at starting your own enterprise. That great American solution can work too. But whatever you do, don’t take it the wrong way: Say goodbye to the guilt. It’s not your fault. It never was. http://www.forbes.com/sites/victorlipman/2012/06/15/an-open-letter-to-anyone-ever-laid-off/

Suze Orman Warns Against Private Student Loans, Yet Teaches at University of Phoenix

David Halperin has been a champion to fight the predatory nature of for-profit colleges, including University of Phoenix. Mr. Halperin is not a revolutionary, he is a reformer. From my perspective, workers need to resist now, and need to stand up against students getting preyed upon. Failure to resist will result in the total failure of the company....http://www.huffingtonpost.com/davidhalperin/suze-orman-warns-against_b_5269212.html?utm_hp_ref=tw
