    Pros

    Gives you a lot of opportunity for research and teaching experience along with working with many premier researchers and teachers in the field.

    Cons

    Florida International University is EXTREMELY unorganized! There is virtually no accountability among the administration and the clerical errors with no easy solutions are never ending.

    Advice to Management

    Become better organized and hold yourselves accountable when you make mistakes. In a large institution, some things are bound to fall through the cracks, but FIU takes things to a whole new level.

    Cons

    Very little room for advancement or increase of salary

    Advice to Management

    Environment is organized, strategic and the climate is generally positive. But advancement, pay increases seems very limited.

    Pros

    I really enjoy the people that I work with directly. I am at the Biscayne Bay campus and I like the sense of community there. It is obvious that the professors, advisors, and career development care for the students.

    Cons

    The pay is awful; experience is not taken into account. I was not given the opportunity to negotiate my salary but took the job anyway because I was extremely interested in the position. Unfortunately, the pay cut has really impacted me financially. This is a cheap university that does not offer any perks. The University of Miami is a much better employer.


  10. Beautiful and diversified campus. A great place to study and work.
