Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at University of Florida full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

benefits, vacation and sick leave accruals State retirement benefits UF is the only "real" employer in the city

Cons

Hire-and-fire HR policy. No real human resource management, no career planning. People are often hired into higher positions based on "who they know" or if they are a spouse of a faculty; rarely based on qualifications and credentials. Male-oriented environment; very few management opportunities for minority women. Physicians and faculty have ultimate administrative decision-making although many of them have no managerial experience (financial or HR). Top leadership only cares about the faculty; staff is rarely mentioned or appreciated. Very bureaucratic institution with many incompetent members.

Advice to Management

Implement "merit-based" incentive program for staff (faculty already get all the perks and salary raises). make the annual performance appraisal a useful tool that reflects on salary and promotion
