Former Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Orlando, FL
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Orlando, FL

Pros

The opportunity to work at a large university that is growing; the opportunity to work with some good folks; opportunities to be involved in a lot of things if able or permitted.

Cons

Favoritism, unprofessional (discussing employee matters with others who are not the employee or a supervisor, and unethical modeling of behavior by leadership (including gossip about personal lives, health, and wellness of employees). Good old boy/girl network which prohibits advancement opportunities. Punished for speaking up for oneself.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Training in professional ethics required for all staff, including leadership.

    Pros

    Great place to live. Good people to work with. A growing, developing organization with investments into some innovative practices.

    Cons

    Little or zero room for advancement. No salary increases due to State of Florida limitations. Sometimes, leadership avoids thinking out-of-the-box. Sometimes leadership over reacts or reacts negatively or strangely to innovative thinking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You want to keep good people? Give them growth opportunities.

    Pros

    Great place to work. The management in my department is awesome. They love to mentor their staff. There is room for growth. I started as an Office Manager and eventually worked up to a higher level position

    Cons

    Although I now make a good salary -- the entry level and mid-level USPS positions can be somewhat low in pay. However, there are good benefits & opportunities to advance.
