    I have been working at University of Miami full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, salary ok, easy to transfer within the institution. Room for growth. Educational benefits are very good for those looking to gain a degree through their employer.

    Cons

    Can be challenging environment to succeed in depending on where you work. Very political environment. Hard to make changes with the structure due to multiple layers of leadership. Somewhat stuck in old thinking, or the "we've always done it that way" mentality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote thought on ways to make the system better, and break out of the top down management mentality. Diversity should be rewarded instead of penalized. Look from within and find those who should advance. Rethink the salary structure compared to your competitors and the expensive cost of living in South Florida.

    Former Employee - Student Assistant in Miami, FL

    I worked at University of Miami

    Pros

    My hourly pay was increased each semester that I continued to work at the library. There were only two full-time employees of the library but they were great to work with and the rest of the employees were students.

    Cons

    Although it increased with each semester, the pay was still not very high. However, it was enough to live on as a student.
