    I worked at University of Central Florida part-time

    Pros

    The support staff in the psychology department was incredibly helpful when it came to concerns and when problems arose with teaching assignments.

    Cons

    Semester to Semester variations in teaching availability. The availability to teaching positions was subject to departmental funding. In some programs you are less likely to receive a position the more years you are in the program.

    Advice to Management

    Don't assign Instructor of Record courses based on the graduate student's adviser's background instead of the student themselves in order to avoid having an Instructor who does not know more on the topic than what is in the book.

    Pros

    PTO and time-off during Christmas time. Working with students is great! Relaxed environment, beautiful campus.

    Cons

    Bureaucracy, inefficient way of doing things, many incompetent people.

    Advice to Management

    Implement a bottom-up approach when making drastic changes. Get rid of incompetent people and increase salary of good performers to market rate.

    Pros

    I worked for both Computer Services & Telecommunications (CS&T), Business Services, and the School of Visual Arts & Design (SVAD) over a span of 6 years. The benefits are great (USPS), include healthcare, access to an on-site faculty gym, tuition reimbursement, paid vacation time and paid sick leave. The campus is huge with a lot of resources at your disposal and you get a lot more paid holiday off because it's a university as opposed to working for a commercial business. SVAD was great, but I may have liked that job best. Everyone was always nice and the benefits as a GTA were pretty good (not USPS level, but covered healthcare and tuition).

    Cons

    It really depends on the department. I worked OPS (which is full time no benefits) for CS&T for several years. They were extremely disorganized, treated their student and OPS workers like they were expendable, and never seemed to take me seriously. Business Services seemed a little better (I worked both OPS & USPS for that department), but were very slow at promoting (which seemed to be the case across the board). The only con I have for SVAD is that it was extremely difficult to get technical support on anything.

    Advice to Management

    Take all your employees seriously. All levels - part time, full time, OPS, USPS, GTA, etc. - are valuable and should be treated as such.
