I worked at Grand Canyon University

Pros

School is growing. Nothing else, really.

Cons

Pushy, dishonest, unethical, and poor enrollment process. Phone interviews are all about "finding the pain". Bad sales technique.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Enrollment quotas and threats for not hitting them cause a bad work environment. Make the job about the student.

    Former Employee - University Development Representative

    I worked at Grand Canyon University

    Pros

    Grand Canyon University has some quality academic programs and real potential as a leader in the for-profit sector. University Development Reps in areas that are familiar with GCU will probably experience marginal, if not somewhat good, success.

    Cons

    High turnover in this position, inexperienced management team with backgrounds that are not appropriate for their position in academia, encouragement of reps to use high pressure sales tactics. Micromanagement is unbearable, even for top performers. At the end of the day, your numbers are all that matter. Little to no room for growth.
