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

Pros

Free school, benefits, cool campus, etc. It is a job.

Cons

Immature senior management (some at the VP level, however immediate supervision is awesome... would not work for anyone else in the company), poor (confusing) communication, and really no room for advancement. NONE.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to those who are "under" you. Maybe there is some good advice out there from really talented people that you ignore or take credit for yourself.

    I have been working at Grand Canyon University full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great opportunity to continue education at no cost. Working with students is very fulfilling.

    Cons

    Micromanagement. Numbers, numbers, numbers, regardless of territory, economy, or geography.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your feet on the street. Not all territories are created the same. Please don't assume your employees are not working if enrollments aren't happening. Help us dig in to the reasons so we can be productive and fruitful.

    I worked at Grand Canyon University full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Free education (dependent on program of study)

    Cons

    Pessimistic. Everything is focused on what was not accomplished instead of the progress made, management degrading to employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Yelling and threatening is not a proper way to motivate employees to do better
