    I have been working at Grand Canyon University full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There are good benefits and decent pay

    Cons

    For enrollment counselors, there is no opportunity to grow, and in most cases people are fighting to keep their job. This company has the worst training I have experienced at any previous employer, so employees are extremely ill-prepared. In my experience, I did not see one person promoted in the 14 months I have been with the company. In those months I saw 15 employees, on my team alone, either quit or get fired due to numbers. This company touts that they are a Christian school; however, do not treat their employees with any dignity or respect.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop churning through employees, realize that the business is flawed, and do something to better prepare employees instead of forking out endless amounts of money training new ones that are also destined to fail like their predecessors.
