    A Great Place to Be

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Gainesville, FL

    ProsThere are many employment opportunities at UF and the institution provides great benefits. It also provides employee education assistance and great leave benefits. A very diverse student population and workplace.

    ConsThe shear size of the institution some times slows thing down, but that is the same with any large organizations or institutions.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you are doing.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Love being a Gator!

    Graduate Assistant (Current Employee)
    Gainesville, FL

    ProsAdvisors and supervisors are really helpful and supportive.

    Graduate Hall Director (Residence Life)

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThis was the best job I've ever had. The leadership supports development among professional and student staff and residents, and there is great recognition of the variety of ways a staff member can contribute to the mission of the department. It's also a very friendly and fun work culture. I learned SO much in the GHD role!

    ConsRequired to be responsible during "off" hours for on-calls and consultation with staff members in crises. There is plenty of staff support and flexibility to make this manageable.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you're doing! I know my exit interview suggestions, though minor, were well-heard. You always keep your staff in mind, and it's appreciated!
