    Pros

    Very clear and simple (for a university position) application and hiring process. Onboarding is smooth and keeps its focus on the expectations of the position.

    Cons

    Nothing comes to mind, but I've only been with them for a month or so and am filling this out mostly because glassdoor won't let me finish me resume upload without it.

    Started well and went downhill in this highly aggressive, siloed and political organization.

    Pros

    Large local company in Daytona Beach that employes a lot of people. They have a great reputation that they covet and they protect that reputation at all costs. ERAU also pays well. Health benefits are average/competitive with other organizations. The time off is excellent and the 403B matching is good too. So overall, the benefits are good. Some managers are excellent and others are not.

    Cons

    Embry-Riddle has some extremely poor managers who create bad environments for their team. These managers are not identified and weeded out by their manager and not by HR either. In some cases, sadly, they are promoted. The org structure is constantly changing and there is a lot of competitiveness between the campuses. Upper management message is not consistent with ERAU operations. People who leave are NOT welcome back despite what may be said. Be prepared for an aggressive,vs assertive, environment where who you know is more important that what you deliver and how you treat people.

    Advice to Management

    Add processes that promote feedback about immediate supervisors/managers so poor managers can be dealt with. Improve HR's role in gathering feedback from ALL employees who leave. It will be enlightening. Train your management staff and don't assume they are good. Be consistent in messaging to employees.

    Culture, messaging and performance begin at the top of the organization.

    Break own the "pecking" order that has been developed with the campuses and administrative groups.

    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.

  7. Student Multimedia-Technician, in charge of setting up events and manning the help desk in the library.

    Pros

    A great job for students as you have a say in your schedule and can work more or less depending on how your schedule works.

    Cons

    The job can become very boring very quickly.

    Advice to Management

    The job would be better if there was some actual training on both setting up events and handling technical issues employees are expected to handle rather than just the emergency procedures.

  8. A lot of freedom to be creative.

    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

    Pros

    Work at home most of the time

    Cons

    The Worldwide Campus (online and remote campuses) is treated like a ugly stepchild although faculty are hired with the understanding they are joining the "faculty" at ERAU. Tenure procedures, faculty senate procedures, promotion procedures, faculty hiring and development...all are different for Worldwide. This sends a message to all faculty and students...the Worldwide Deans are all unqualified to hold their positions and placed there simply to do what they are told. They are either incapable of original thought or unwilling to act on it...and its shows every day. Working at worldwide is like being on a sinking ship...disastrous!

    Advice to Management

    Remove the Chancellor and the Deans, find some capable people....your enrollments are trending down for a reason. Start leading on the basis of values not personal opinion and agendas.
