Topics regarding layoffs at University of Phoenix

UOP - Utah

The Utah location has been dead for some time. But they have an Education Program Chair and no students. I was told I wasn’t needed anymore because they weren’t running the programs. But they kept the staff. Maybe that explains the failures of UOP.

June layoffs?

Traditionally we have layoffs in June. Anyone confirm they are happening again?

Happy Faculty Appreciation Week

I got an email telling me it’s faculty appreciation week and I should reach out to my local campus leadership to find out what they are doing. I haven’t heard from local leadership in over a year. I’m not even sure who is still around. They announced... read more

Glint, no action

We give up. For all the excitement and feedback provided guess no action from Glint. Are no leaders brave?

Oracle Buys Vocado

Not The Onion:

Some faculty will ride it down to the end

Well --- I'm a former faculty member, starting at a local campus and then going online. For a long time we had a great reputation here, with many dedicated faculty. We put out a good product. The downfall of UoP came, in my opinion, with the rise of... read more

What UOPX the company needs....

Faculty needs to band together and do a walk out. Given the disrespect, increase in class size and decrease in quality. Stand united and walk out. You need to be treated better. When our instrutor told us about how they are treated, dang. Not good.

What does the future hold for Phoenix?

What does the future hold for Phoenix? Will it rise from the ashes that it has created? Is it likely to burn up before any chance of ascension? If the past is prologue then the seeds of demise have been sown. The reputation cannot be salvaged... read more

TAC Reductions

Invester Leadership is still after more money and the target this week; TAC leadership.

Why are you still working at UoP?

I worked for UoP for nearly 10 years. Why are you folks still working there? You obviously know how horrible it is. The grass is much greener outside of that life-s---ing place. Granted, 5 weeks vacay, and a steady paycheck is hard to let go of, but... read more

Staffing shortage

Is being woefully understaffed part of the overall strategy. Academics cant work their own students. Finance is never availble. Calls last 45 minutes cant even notate before the next one comes in, unsustainable!

Plan B

So how is the guarantee pricing going and the Genesys software?? Any hope left??

The company will not make it to sale

Definitely bankruptcy ahead for us. We are limping to 4th quarter. It’s obvious to everyone here working with the systems, the students, the leads and resources that we are crashing and burning quickly. Upper management is unaware and they truly... read more

What I see; what others see

I think there are two sides here. One side is the capital group thinking it is putting together a sale where the the organization will be snapped up by a buyer; the other side is thinking the organization will go out of business. The latter is what I... read more


Honestly, I hope either one of these schools buy UoPhx and take over. They could keep most employees and it’s resources to expand. That would be awesome! Brian Muller or Michael Crow if your listening, come save us!

Increase of Quality?

Many that work and teach at UOP believe if we increase the quality of courses we can right size the reality we are not providing value. Let’s make our courses more involved and frankly harder and requiring more work to providing a better education... read more


I just watched a TV show called Taken in which corporate investors come into a business,strip it down to its bare bones, laying off staff, grabbing their pension funds along with any 'surplus' funds, and then sell it off again . It sort of reminds me... read more

Registration deadline and layoffs

The signs are clear we are taking on water and going down fast. For those not in enrollment, UOP extended the registration deadline for March. Students now have until 3/23 to enroll for classes that start 3/27. Sounds like they are set up for... read more

Break it down

At one time they were the only game in town. This led to people being fat and happy with 20% raises and weak standards. But then competition happened. They were left with VP's who are reactive and institute bad tech and policies. Directors who are... read more


5 managers and unknown amount of techs. Once again no dignity or respect shown to employees.

What we have lost....

What we lost as a company are ethics and a care for our employees. If you care for employees they will take take of the company. Fact. Leaders have lost their integrity.
