    Advice to Management

    My only advice would be to take a step back and see what your employees can do before trying to micro manage them. This job requires us to be sometimes 3 places at once and it's not easy. Especially with someone breathing down your neck. So my suggestion is take a step back first before stepping in.

    I have been working at Grand Canyon University full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Remote opportunities with hands off management...as long as you are doing your job. Flexible work schedules. They pay well for the industry. Company believes in hiring within. If you're able to move to Phoenix, you have a lot of room for advancement and growth in different areas.

    Cons

    Remote work doesn't provide too many opportunities for water cooler "Scandal" talk, nor attendance at the company annual Christmas party. Remote work doesn't provide opportunities for advancement, unless you plan to relocate to Phoenix.

    I worked at Grand Canyon University part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I was a student worker so I only worked part time, but this was a great experience. It not only gave me great opportunities to practice customer service skills and phone skills, but LEADing others helped me stay fresh on my own material as well. I highly recommend it to any student looking for a job on campus!

    Cons

    Management is a little unorganized at times, and the computer system GCU uses can be trying.

    Advice to Management

    Seriously guys, LoudCloud is a nightmare. Find a new system to fit your growing operations.
