Poor pay, poor support for professional development

Visiting Assistant Professor (Former Employee)
Coral Gables, FL

Prossomewhat prestigious university, so it looks good on your cv/resume

ConsI got zero support for professional development, and some faculty could not come to terms with the fact that in order for me FINANCIALLY and professionally to make it out of a dead-end job like a VAP at UM I had to get some research done. I can understand that a VAP is not a research position, but they're paying dirt wages, so there should be some sort of recognition of the fact that this is a very temporary situation and that a VAP should have some room to research so as to get out of that situation

Advice to Senior ManagementStaff is really resentful of the fact that it's so difficult to advance w/in UM and the pay sucks. That affects everything in the university.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
