The University of Florida is an awesome university for graduate students.

PhD Student (Current Employee)
Gainesville, FL

I have been working at University of Florida full-time for more than 3 years

Pros-They have a great selection of courses
-There are great professors
-They give awesome opportunities for research
-You are always pushed to succeed
-The weather is great

Cons-I didn't find too many cons about working at the University of Florida. It was far from home for me, so that was a bit of a con. Also, I am from the Midwest where the people are very friendly. In Florida, there is a bit of an East Coast atmosphere. People are at a much faster pace and aren't as friendly as the Midwest.

Advice to Senior ManagementInstead of cutting the budget so much, I think the tuition should be raised a bit. For the quality of the University, the tuition is quite low.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
