    Good benefits but unorganized upper management

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at University of Central Florida

    Pros

    Steady workload, good health benefits and paid time off, nice location (not directly on campus but still very close to everything in the UCF area)

    Cons

    Uninspiring office space and constant change of upper management, high turnaround in the time that I was there made for a more stressful workplace than anticipated

    I have been working at University of Central Florida full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work with faculty and students from across the disciplines

    Cons

    Sometimes I feel that the work I do is not valued due to increasing demands on producing student credit hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on student-centered learning models (Howard Gardner and his research on multiple intelligences)

    Potential is there with better involvement from senior leadership

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at University of Central Florida

    Pros

    Great benefits, in a good area

    Cons

    Highly competitive in areas that don't seem like they should be so. Human capital problem- bot utilizing people where they perform best, and refusal to get rid of thosr who continually display less than quality work and no work ethic. Promoting people to supervisory roles without investigating in training them how to be good managers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure when you promote someone to a leadership role, they know what they're doing! Being good at the job is one thing but if they don't know how to lead or manage, it's wasted. Pay people what they are worth and FIRE those who clearly don't want to work.

    OPS dont get benefits and if you get fired you can never work for the school again. There isnt too much bad to say about this company

    Current Employee - Communications Manager in Orlando, FL

    I have been working at University of Central Florida part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I've gotten so many opportunities, learned so much, and had the opportunity to have real, hands on experience in my field while still being able to heavily focus on school.

    Cons

    Nothing! I love it here. The only complaint that I could potentially have is that it's truly a family and a home here and that makes me want to dedicate so much more time to working.

    Update your technology, way too many forms to sign when they should be online.

    Pros

    Depending on what class you end up TAing for you will get paid to do nothing.

    Cons

    Professors will take any chance they get to pass work onto you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow GTAs to work 40+ hours if they need to. Hard to make ends meet.
