Diploma Mill

I was told last week that I cannot fail students, even if they do not complete work. My campus is a “teach-out” so they want everyone graduated regardless of quality. Guess I’ll keep teaching and just give As; why grade if they all have to pass.

Enrollment quotas

If you are having to make specific enrollment targets to keep your job, please let me know. The more documentation, the better. Also, if you know of ways UoPX is targeting veterans against the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), there are concerned... read more

HR, legal and VPs - ethical??

Reviewed today the many layoffs over the last 6 months. Many, let me repeat, many of these were not related to bad HR yearly reviews, or DMs or WW. Many appear to be more related to the employee's age. Hey, we know of 2 leaders who reported to HR... read more

Are severance packages taxed like crazy? Anyone know how much they can take?

Merger Agreement Question

I thought the new owners could not lay anyone off for one year after the merger. Here's a link to the merger agreement. Can someone look at section 6.10 D (iii) (p. 77)? To me, it reads that per the Merger Agreement, the new owners could not... read more

This is truly the beginning of the end

Salary caps, severance packages, QC gone, more layoffs...I give UOP 1.5 years before it completely implodes. How long will good employees stick around? Not long Id say. Folks are depressed. The company will rehire with folks who will burn out in 6... read more

Goodbye QC

Enrollment layoffs and salary reduction

Enrollment had layoffs and salary reductions for some ER’s today. It’s 100% true. Does anyone know the exact details? Salary limits? Number of reductions? Arizona only or other campuses too? Grab a life vest. The ship is taking on water.

Over paid

Honestly... Did none of you see this coming? A quick search shows you that enrollment / admission pays between 39k and 50k industry wide. There are people making TWICE that at UOP. Are they putting in TWICE the students?
