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

    Pros

    Good benefits, working with generally good people, really appreciate the Christian emphasis.

    Cons

    Expected to retire from GCU, then got 'Reduction-in-Forced' after almost five years. No real warning. Found a new job at higher pay shortly after.

    Advice to Management

    Just because someone's a bit older than the rest of the team, that doesn't make them less capable than the rest of the team.

    I worked at Grand Canyon University part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The fact that school is a Christian University is great. I enjoyed sharing my love of Jesus with my students.

    Cons

    The school's rigor is poor. I was simply horrified with some of my on-line masters-level students' writing ability., and when you point out these deficits, the students try to engage you in a verbal altercation asserting that no other professor has ever commented on the issue.

    In addition, some of my 12th grade students have better writing skills than Grand Canyon's masters-level students. I found this highly discouraging, and I decided that I do not want to be a part of university with such low standards.

    In addition, sadly, most of my students at Grand Canyon were teachers.

    Advice to Management

    Please work to make your on-line program more rigorous.
