I worked at Grand Canyon University full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

In the beginning they paid very well. Maybe even too much. There was flexibility and trust in the employees. When is was small there was a true entreprenurial spirit.

Cons

Grew too big and lost site of students and employees. No trust in its employees and management. Too big of a separation between academia and the "sales" side of it. Many liked working there because it was a university but being on another side of town altogether lost that feel.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire the right people in the first place and put the trust in them to accomplish the job. Clear goals without any double standards or double talk.
