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

    Pros

    Free college for myself and 2 dependents.

    Cons

    Extreme racism going on in the Public Safety Department. I can’t speak for other departments. People of color are not being promoted is Public Safety (only white males). HR complaints, EEOC complaints, and possible future law suits on the horizon. Working in this department is a job, not a career. GET YOUR DEGREE AS FAST AS YOU CAN AN MOVE ON!

    Advice to Management

    Treat everyone fair and equal so that employees can advance based on experience & skills, and not race.
