    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.
