    Pros

    Can easily reach out and get help. A definite legg up over many other universities. Great pay and benefits. Treated with respect for what you bring to the job.

    Cons

    Course schedules can be a bit hectic, but advanced notice is available. Have no Cons, no school comes close in serving the professional student and military better. Awesome place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing that management is not continously working to improve.

    Pros

    If you want to continue your education (at this university only) or if you like to fly, by all means do it!

    Cons

    Salary is low, benefits are not competitive, depending on where you work, the unit may be very inflexible in terms of PL, schedules, etc. Also, Daytona is not the most livable place especially if you enjoy a decent night life...

    Pros

    The benefits are great, there is a lot of freedom/autonomy at the campus, and management seems to be understanding to the work/life balance required.

    Cons

    The organization as a whole is quite liberal, and I am not. That takes a bit of adjustment. Also, there is very little transparency, and often you will find that employees with the same experience have vastly different salaries. Also, there is no clear application of the rules - it seems to be based on the leadership's whim.

    Advice to Management

    Follow the policies and procedures set forward. Apply them fairly and morale will improve!

    Pros

    The students are great to work with, but they expect to be given breaks and treated like HS students.

    Cons

    I have been in leadership on and off the battlefield. ERAU has the worse leadership I've ever seen. Leadership runs on fear and people are running for the doors. It is a complete dictatorship on steroids. Corrupt to the core. They market to students that they offer classroom classes, but the truth is only 5% of all courses offered are traditional classroom courses. Most courses are online or live video web streaming. Be honest and tell prospective students the truth! BE CAREFUL before you decide to work at ERAU Worldwide as you will regret it!

    Advice to Management

    Try taking your MGMT 371 Leadership course for starters. Get rid of your current leadership and replace it with leadership that cares about people vs. money, big salaries, fancy and expensive trips. Take care of your people and your enrollments will increase.

    Pros

    (Position dependant) Fair pay for an on-campus job, convenient to work at school, easy accommodations for scheduling with classes with most offices.

    Cons

    Some offices "baby" student employees, others put a lot of pressure on students. You may be in a position that lacks the real-world job skills that students should learn or you may be overloaded with responsibility.

    Pros

    Great benefits, helpful coworkers, summer hours are 4-day workweeks with Fridays off, but you can negotiate a different day. A full week and a half off at Christmas without taking leave. Tuition benefit for your kids.

    Cons

    Some people hired from outside the university to come in and assume leadership positions are a bad fit, and should not be kept on. Higher leadership recognizes this, but doesn't fix problems. The current budget deficit being advertised is an excuse to realign, lay off.

    Advice to Management

    Bring the Worldwide and Campus courses and programs in line with each other so we're not in competition. Morale is low at Worldwide right now. Do something positive soon, please.
