I have been working at Grand Canyon University full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Great Benefits, PTO, paid for Masters degree. Very flexible schedule and understanding manager. (I got lucky with my Manager) Great co-workers.

Cons

No real chance of moving up unless you are part of the "good ol' boy" group. Even if you meet requirements, have a degree and participate in projects outside of your job description. Call center sales environment that is based solely on numbers, even though they claim they don't. You are expected to convince people to go to school, even if they don't want to. Evaluations are not fair, in the sense that you can be above requirements or below requirements and still get the same raise.

Advice to Management

It is the luck of the draw on which manager you get. Some managers are awesome, like mine. However some managers are not and so the requirements, write ups, and fires are not equal across the board. Without a base standard that is actually followed this makes it a stressful and an unfair, low moral environment for most.

    I have been working at Grand Canyon University full-time

    Pros

    The benefits are generally decent.

    Cons

    Most of the upper management consists of former connections from University of Phoenix. They bully, intimidate, and work people to death, especially if they show some competence.

    In reality, upper management is generally incompetent and they are scared that someone might reveal their incompetence. People are often promoted on the basis of family relationships and friendships. The turnover rate is generally very high.

    Advice to Management

    Repent to God...
