    I worked at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (More than a year)

    Pros

    You get a platform where you can stand in front of 30 people in a class, presenting yourself and helping them learn some of the computer tools which will be very much helpful for them in future.

    Cons

    Sometimes the student can be pain for you.

    Pros

    Great place to work. Good benefits!

    Cons

    While pay is competitive with the area it is not competitive with the type of school, but still not bad.

    I have been working at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Work in a great department with supportive and competent staff and reporting line that is equally supportive and competent. Great benefits. Excellent pay for the area and compared to other private universities in the area.

    Cons

    Constant changes in organizational structure and in reporting lines. Not enough collaboration among departments who serve students. Top performers get the same raise as those who just do their job.

    Advice to Management

    Lead by example. Answer emails, support your people, and be good stewards of the university's funds. Support staff professional development and provide opportunities for departments to collaborate and break down silos. Make a decision...are we one university or three separate campuses? And for the record, I strongly approve of Dr. Watret and feel he could turn many of these issues around.

    Pros

    Benefits are GREAT! Best in the area for sure.

    Cons

    The culture of the organization changes drastically based on what department you are in. Some places are much better to work in than others.

    Advice to Management

    The upper administration seems to be a little self-absorbed. Don't forget who this is all about: the students.

    Pros

    Salary, Work, Flexible hours. The place is really laid back but loads of opportunity to learn and grow.

    Cons

    I couldnt have asked for more. It might be better if you can utilize the waiver allowed for next semester in this one incase you want to take up extra subjects and complete early.

    Advice to Management

    Keep Rocking

    Disappointing. Leadership and upper/middle management are clueless and are only there to protect their perks and jobs.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Free tuition for self and dependents, summer hours, academic setting

    Cons

    Too many "managers" and "directors"; you won't be able to take courses because they overload you with work; only the higher-ups get to enjoy the perks; very "clique-oriented" ; management's priority is protecting their jobs; this is a for-profit business masquerading as an educational institution

    Advice to Management

    Leadership needs to listen to all sectors, including those with contrary views; management is top-heavy; they need to get all these "managers" and "directors" to actually do work; title inflation is very rampant -- a "director" here is equivalent to a supervisor or lead in a similar business environment; the unfortunate students who are paying these ridiculous tuition fees deserve better and should not be misled that it will be easy for them to get jobs when they graduate with an ERAU diploma.
