    I worked at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good collaboration with faculty members. Good work-life balance and rather generous leave and vacation time, even for first-year employees.

    Cons

    Administrative salaries were not consistent. Policies and procedures manual is extremely long, but it does not always result in streamlined customer service from the students perspective.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Simplify and cut red tape wherever possible. Empower front-line employees to handle most requests directly to avoid the run-around.

    I have been working at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University

    Pros

    The average IQ level of this place is way higher than average. Florida weather is beautiful. The University puts a lot of trust in people they hire and rightly so.

    Cons

    No bad reviews about this place. I have worked about 6 jobs at this University and I have enjoyed them all.

    Pros

    I've been blessed to have worked for such a great supervisor and an amazing team. There were many setbacks but we had each other's back. Also puts value in having a balanced work life.

    Cons

    Does not offer students many of the courses listed in their catalog which in turn discourages the students. Tuition increases is what ultimately made our campus site suffer the most.

    Pros

    The company has great benefits, lots of time off, and great pay. Most people are really wonderful

    Cons

    I had no training, my job description doesn't even come close to matching what we spoke about in the interviews, and my boss currently gives me no work. However, they expect me to look like I am busy all the time.

    I have been working at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits! Tuition waivers, 4 day work weeks in summer.

    Cons

    Low pay despite advanced degrees, too much upper management red tape with rampant nepotism! No way to advance one's career unless you know the right people and are favorite of management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward employees based on performance, dedication, ability to perform the job not just on favoritism and nepotism. And keep an eye on your middle management- too many sheriffs and not enough deputies can slow down the efficacy of a department.
