    I worked at NSU (Nova Southeastern University) full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great benefits: Tuition waiver, disability, maternal leave, health, dental, life insurance, trainings and 401K/403 retirement plan.

    Cons

    The only way to get promotions is by a degree or who you know… I’ve gotten persistent to get a promotion however, it was stopped because of not having a degree. They prefer it than the amount of years of experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work more than 100% but have your degree… Plus if you don’t see growth within a year or 2.. move to the next level!

    Pros

    Benefits, location, and activities on campus

    Cons

    Pay is not great, terrible management, hard to move up. Tuition waivers are also being reduced severely.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't lose sight of why we are in business... Stop acting like a profit university and start showing that you are truly a non-profit school that cares about students and not just $$$$. Also, stop believing that all the processes in place are actually working.. Admissions, financial aid, and the call center is poorly managed and are currently working as silos.... If you truly want one NSU start at the root.

    Pros

    Only pro was the health care benefits.

    Cons

    HR is incompetent. Employees have to wait a month to get a computer. Has too many politics. My boss prevented me from speaking to my coworkers. Employees put up with the extremely low pay to get free education. But come on, who wants a degree from NSU? This school is ranked so low and has no brand recognition. This school is a joke and has people in leadership who have no skills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop pretending you know what you are doing and take some advice from time to time.

    - Fantastic benefits (health, retirement, time-off, Tuition waivers).
    - Good, family-like, office culture (for the most part everything is celebrated: birthdays, retirements, new opportunities)

    Cons

    - Opportunities for professional growth are very limited.
    - Low salaries (but this is somewhat offset by the benefits offered).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote more and offer better salaries.

    Pros

    Facilities are all new or like-new. Tuition waiver is a great value, though graduate education is only partially covered.

    Cons

    Dinosaur-era management styles, surveillance, very low pay, disorganized training, rude and unprofessional staff, very desperate feeling among coworkers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As a university that wants to project itself into 2020 with a grand vision, try and look at how your competition in the North and West run themselves. This university is lacking in academic integrity and its operations are equally flawed. They market themselves well, but a chocolate covered ant is still an ant, despite how sweet it may look.
