    Pros

    It was a good job for convenience while attending classes at the Dayton

    Cons

    Management employees have been their for years and therefore can seem to be unable to use far work ethics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I was apprehended by my manager about a conversation between another employee in which their was not a problem, however my manager had lunch with this girl every day and the girl lied and told my manager a complete lie about our conversation on how to set-up the chemistry lab. I feel that it would have been better for my manager to have had a meeting with the both of us together;, this way the other girl would have had to be honest about the conversation we had about how the manager expected us to set up the chemistry lab.

    Former Employee - Innovation Center Manager  in  Daytona Beach, FL
    Former Employee - Innovation Center Manager in Daytona Beach, FL

    Pros

    In the department I worked in, there was a family like atmosphere- and everyone in that department was very invested in what they did. Working with professors was a very positive experience, and even as a student this was more exceptional than where I completed my Bachelors.

    Cons

    Lots of hiring freezes. Many other departments had issues, along with unhealthy internal competition between departments. The college is not on one page, poor management could be an issue with many departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not micromanage. Find common goals in other departments, and find a way to work with them toward those goals.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Great team to work with, high levels of communication, out of the box thinking to solve very intricate issues. The potential to work with motivated and caring individuals is second to none.

    Cons

    Outside of the team the organization is best by a deep addiction to politics and vertical siloing of information to the point that solution may be approved and then not implemented for years.

    Pros

    You get lots of time off here and if you like a repetitive job where for 10 years you do the same thing this place is for you.

    Cons

    Just like everyone else has said working at this place was a joke. They only care about donors family members and the executive families. I was in the same position for almost 10 years. No matter how many degrees you get, how hard you work, or how responsible you are, if you don't know someone in upper management or do special questionable favors for upper management you won't go anywhere. I saw multiple times where people with no degrees / experience were getting promoted to levels they didn't even qualify for. I am so glad I left this place to work at a place where I pay more in taxes than I would make in a years salary there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This place needs a complete overhaul of management. You need to boost the morale of the majority of the workers. Force management to not be allowed to stay in the same position for more than 2 years.
