    Good place to work but not advance your career

    Systems Analyst (Former Employee) Daytona Beach, FL

    ProsThe people are great to work with and generally seem happy.

    ConsThe politics and power struggle of upper management in the IT department were outrageous. Limited career growth and people riding their desk to retirement were reasons for a young employee to want to leave.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe careful on who you hire, one bad person can ruin a well functioning team. The divide between Worldwide and the University is a disservice to everyone involved at the University. ERAU Worldwide has gone rogue.
