UoPX numbers and the "culture of silence"

Since late 2016, University of Phoenix has been able to work under the radar, because they don't have to produce SEC documents. UoPX, under Apollo Global Management and Vistria Group, won't even tell many of its own workers how many students they... read more

Enrollment REG goals

Hit those numbers or lose your job. Not getting any calls, or just voicemails and people who hang up, NOT leaderships problem. Hit those REG totals. What a joke

More deleted posts

These new VP’s must be really intimidated. Posts on this site are getting deleted right and left. Goals not being met and enrollment is down. Hoping everything crashes soon. I could use a few weeks off.
