    Pros

    Barry has a lot of university wide events and extras, you have the opportunity to take classes and can get a degree. The benefits are good for a university.

    Cons

    While the salary seems to be on par with other universities, leadership may be lacking depending on the department that you work in. It seems that there is a lot of in fighting between the departments vying for resources in a mostly tuition driven institution.

    Advice to Management

    Incentives for performance would be good.

  11. Great place to grow, learn and work!

    Pros

    Great people, benefits and a beautiful campus. Feels like a real community/family environment.

    Cons

    Maybe increase pay for development professionals to at least meet the high cost of living in Miami and match the national average at a minimum.
