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

    Pros

    Very nice co-workers. Salary is pretty good.

    Cons

    Online faculty have to work on-campus and sit in a cubicle all day. Administrative managers often have lower education levels than instructors and little content knowledge of the areas they manage. Number of students is 80-100 minimum per instructor. Required weekly tasks are excessive and the only education that is happening is with students who are self-directed. Instructors do not have time to do anything but process classrooms.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your full-time faculty with dignity and allow them to work from home if desired. Working in a cube is demeaning.

    I have been working at Grand Canyon University full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I have worked for GCU for 9 years in the corporate offices. I appreciate the Christian environment. The compensation is good, but the overall ambiance of the place is awesome. Also, they understand that you should have a life outside of work.

    Cons

    I don't have any. I am a happy employee and plan on working here for years to come.

    Pros

    Great benefits, partnered with awesome teams.

    This company has some growing pains, flexibility with the amount of change that happens with this organization is a must to be successful. It can also be challenging for career growth - some positions hit a "ceiling" pretty quickly.
