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

Pros

Great company with a Christian foundation. Work environment is positive, over all. Very transparent in goals for company growth and opportunities to advance given the right immediate leadership. Salary is comparible to other schools I have worked for. Benefits are decent.

Cons

Close cubicle environment. Expectations to enroll are sometimes higher than what's available in leads given. Job security is based on producing admissions not on work ethics. Typical. If you don't produce students your job is not secured.

    I worked at Grand Canyon University full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Free graduate degree. They have a huge budget to work with when it comes to marketing projects and endeavors. Makes it easy to get things done when you have unlimited money. Health benefits were good and low cost.

    Cons

    Strict hours, low pay, no advancement, strict dress code, campus is in terrible area full of gangs, no room for advancement. They load on more and more work and your boss will NEVER say no to enrollment. Marketing is strictly a creative services environment, and has no real strategic voice in any of the campaigns. They let enrollment run marketing. For the most part the managment is bible beaters, and if you aren't you won't fit in, yet they don't practice what they preach. Most of managment is busy talking smack about thier team in thier office all day with the doors closed. It's constant gossip hour of the female managment in marketing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to say no to sales/enrollment. Get some training for managers and hire ones that have college degrees, it is a university, after all.
