I worked at Florida Atlantic University as a contractor (more than an year)

Pros

Being an adjunct professor is very rewarding, working with the students is great. Most classrooms feature state of the art equipment.

Cons

You won't get rich being an adjunct professor. It is a labor of love.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Best not to keep loading up adjunct professors with more and more students ... they will get burnt out.

    I worked at Florida Atlantic University full-time

    Pros

    None. There are no positives to this institution.

    Cons

    The leadership team here is horrible, from micromanagement to complete disrespect for their employees this place is somewhere I would steer clear. There is a reason why the administration and leadership teams here are constantly changing and their services are no longer being required. They have a low student graduate rate and high employee turnover rate, the reason for this is because FAU does not know who they are nor how people or students should be treated. In my short experience there I witnessed several students being turned away for services because the staff did not feel like doing their jobs. AVOID THIS PLACE, it's not worth the few pennies they will pay you to work there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take management and leadership courses so you understand how to actually manage people.
