Great benfits, academic politics.

Associate Director (Current Employee)
Gainesville, FL

I have been working at University of Florida

ProsThere is a fantastic benefits structure in place. If you get a good supervisor who will allow you to utilize these resources there is a lot of flexiblity as long as you get your job done well. It is one of the best places to work if you are a die-hard Gator fan. There is a positive culture permeates the town and connects you with people you have never even met.

ConsGenerally, a cultural division between faculty and administrative support staff. The generational shift in incoming students may be one of the most challenging groups of folks academia has yet had to work with (this permeates the industry, not just UF). There tends to be some entrenched feudalism and fiefdoms entrenched in the inter-departmental parts of the organization and between the colleges.
