  1.  

    Good school for study

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Florida Institute of Technology

    Pros

    It's a good school, professors are nice and helpful. Although the assignments some times are so hard, but they really made me learnt a lot.

    Cons

    Maybe because of the school is not so huge, there are not so many companies in the career fair. And the dinning hall is a little expensive.

  2.  

    Educationally this was an amazing experience where as the social experience was a bit unusual.

    I worked at Florida Institute of Technology

    Pros

    I meet some very unique people during my studies and tool classes that were equally as unique.

    Cons

    It was hard to have a social life while attempting to pass coarses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    teachers and management should have outlets for students to release stress at this university by taking them on field trips to have hands on experience in real-world environments.

    Pros

    Great mentor/boss, fair salary for the position. Good admin and support.

    I wish there wasn't a cap on the amount of hours the department could fund graduate students for. There is a 20 hour per week cap.

    Best 4 years of my educational life.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Florida Institute of Technology

    Pros

    *Relatively modest population of students, where you don't feel like a number.
    *Diversity of students from different cultures.
    *Modest # of students = Modest class size. Usually, one class maxes out at 50 students to prevent overcrowding.
    *Respectable professors who are willing to help, even after class hours.

    Cons

    *Not enough educational help (Academic Support Center) for junior/senior level classes.
    *Career Assistance Program needs more exposure to students entering the job market.

    Pros

    Florida Institute of Technology keeps me in school, and gives me good education. Proud to be a panther.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, we have low wages, not much time off. We also, have bad reviews because our students have a hard time paying their loans back.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the president because he is overpaid.
