Grand Canyon Univeristy — Their Own Professors are Miserable
Even the professors know GCU is a joke. For them, it's a HORRIBLE place to work. Here's what they say about working at Grand Canyon University. I found this on an employer-rating web site:
"The turnover here is a great indicator of the kind of environment you're getting into: 18months. And the administration doesn't bat an eye. The bottom line is: you don't matter to them; if you leave, they'll just fill your spot with someone else, preferably someone unqualified so they'll have no choice but to take the bullying and stick around, since they would never get hired in the same position elsewhere...By way of summary I would say you are micromanaged and disempowered...and colleagues don't want to spend time with each other to build a faculty culture because everyone just wants to get out as quickly as possible...The work environment is hostile and fear-based, consisting of extreme micromanagement and little employee empowerment. The people who last are "Yes-men;" making a decision for yourself or voicing an opinion contrary to upper management's is the surest way to be terminated...Of course, there is no faculty senate or representation to the administration. Faculty therefore have no input and no way to advocate for better circumstances to improve their job performance...Upper management motivate by fear..."
"The culture is influenced by people who are sales driven in some divisions and others are more employee focused with a sales push...The industry as a whole falls into a sales type environment for recruiting students and are limited in not providing sales type salaries and commission for the closed sales or enrolled students. The profits are there to support a commission, but the department of education doesn't allow the practice. So employees look forward to a 0 to 4 percent raise for a sales type position at each level due to the measures or job descriptions each are held to."
Would you really want to pay many thousands of dollars for a fake education from a fake "university" where the professors are downtrodden, underpaid, powerless and unhappy? Do you really want to give your money to an institution that cares nothing about EDUCATION, but rather making about making as much cash as possible as quickly as possible? Do you really want to pay money for a sub-par education provided by a CULT?
(Grand Canyon University is owned by the evil, sick, hateful MORMONS). Trust me; it's not a "Christian" college; the same Mormon psychos run GSU as did U. of Phoenix.
