    GCU makes you believe you're making a difference, but you're driving people further in debt thru student loans.

    If pay is all that matters to you, stay, but only if you can meet their requirements.

    Pros

    Decent health insurance, free tuition paid for Bachelor's and Master's degrees which also extends to your spouse and I believe children of age.

    Cons

    Lack of communication - the training is terrible if this is your first admissions/enrollment job. In my training, they concentrated more on the computer system than on the actual degrees and how you deal with students. Very low morale. Management plays favorites ALL the time. I think leads (students) are manipulated in such a way that only the best Enrollment Counselors (ECs) get the good leads. They recycle leads (students). So when you first get out on the floor, they give you a bunch of recycled leads. People who might have expressed an interest in the school say 2-5 years ago and who CLEARLY are no longer interested. But they do this all of the time.

    Advice to Management

    You claim to be leaders, so LEAD!!! Train the financial counselors how to do their jobs instead of making the students want to leave/drop out because the financial counselors didn't give them correct information or were simply just rude. Train your employees. Don't have them just meet in a large room. Provide ongoing and UPDATED training materials. Degree programs should have more information relevant to the types of jobs people can get from obtaining their degree from GCU. Stop regionalizing and let everyone have their fair share and chance of getting students. In other words, don't just have an Arizona team that gets to enroll all the Arizonans.
