Thread regarding University of Phoenix layoffs

2019 Faculty Engagement Survey Response

The following is the comment I offered on the 2019 Faculty Engagement Survey:

"University leadership does not engender trust and confidence. Repeated work-force reductions, campus closures, and declining enrollment as well as lack of transparency, erosion of competitiveness, quality of students, and horrific public perceptions make this a place to run from and leave as quickly as possible. There are zero opportunities for influencing at lower levels, leadership fails to listen to clarion calls for transformation, employees are treated like chattel, and the Peter Principle is alive and thriving. The culture is toxic. Leadership fails to honor its publicly and privately expressed core values. No one outside of executive leadership respects UOP. "

BTW: I am still here after 25 years at UOP because I am hopeful an institution like Purdue (who purchased Kaplan) will take on UOP and cure what seems to be terminal cancer and transform this once "good' institution. It will take a miracle. While we have never been a quality institution, we were at least okay!

To YvxFbzk-hnh....

Compensation is one of the most compelling reasons to stay. Unless one can replicate current income in another job it seems far better to hunker down and wait out the storm, then to leave now and forfeit severance and unemployment. No one can predict the outcome. Phoenix could be purchased by another institution and things can become different if not better. I admit it does not look promising. It did not for Kaplan either.

To befuddled and annoyed by Camden,

I agree Camden is annoying and often toxic. His information is dubious; however, I don't agree that there is transparency. No one at my campus including the CD have a clue what UOP is planning or is doing. Few people at my campus including me trust the president’s all-staff call and the revenue, expenses, and income he identified. How could anyone trust this leadership? They must be of the same ilk who voted for Trump.

The execs: President and Provost not two years here, CFO new, CTO maybe a year. How is that “the same?”

And Camden and his cash flow rumors and hard to come by finance information and Apollo propping up UOP: any of your “brave leakers” can listen to the president’s all-staff call and know exactly how much revenue, expenses, and income there is. Each quarter he has those. There’s zero secrecy there. So it shouldn’t be hard to get the right numbers, yet you don’t. Thus, you apparently have not one credible source at UOP ....

Truth hurts....but this same info has been given year after year.....the one thing thats the same is the upper management.....look around at execs and directors are the same. These surveys are useless till their gone.

@YvxFbzk-1ios, I'm sure the people in Atlanta will appreciate the analogy.

In terms of cash...what cash? If the rumors are true, Apollo Global is propping up University of Phoenix as if it were already dead. They can threaten bankruptcy or a sale to some other dupes, but that won't stop the hemorrhaging.

While financial information is hard to come by, it is likely this comment could be added: "The company must be burning through the cash reserves like Sherman through Georgia".

That is an id--tic reason to stay. Just leave already, it’ll make the place a lot less toxic!

@YvxFbzk, please add your comment to GlassDoor. As for Purdue University Global, think again.
