    Pros

    Strong senior-level leadership (Mahla/Jimenez/Good), many very capable administrative-level leaders, and amazing students/residents/faculty. Great, quiet town to raise a family in.

    Cons

    Absolutely horrid pay--especially while working 60+ hours (no OT) because of under-staffing. Promised raises for exceptional performance, never received. Nepotism is the only way to advance. Most demeaning, demoralizing place I've ever worked with narrow-minded and self-absorbed mid-level leaders that steal credit and defer blame. Those with talent leave quickly, those with a sincere love for UF (or extreme compensation packages) stay to grit their teeth and bear it. Please note--experiences at UF are College and Department specific. I hear the College of Business and Engineering are quite nice and jovial.

    Advice to Management

    The best way to promote excellence is teamwork and fair compensation. You are getting what you deserve...and what you pay for.

    Pros

    great work environment, good people to work with, very supportive. The town is a college town and has its own positives and negatives.

    Cons

    not many cons. The traffic is heavy for a small town like gainesville. Its a nice college town.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up. I don't have much advice to the management. So I will keep it short. Continue to do the same and keep up the good work.

    Pros

    Research at UF is healthy and growing. All professors are very talented.

    Cons

    I think there is still not enough collaborative environment. More collaboration can lead to growth in research pace.

    Pros

    In my particular unit, I have a great boss that wants to support my professional growth, but I can't say that for all units. Cost of living in Gainesville is low. Benefits are wonderful!

    Cons

    Low Pay, Jaded workers, demanding students (but you will have those anywhere you go really)

    Advice to Management

    Even though it isn't possible to give raises, try to give professional opportunities to your workers that help attain their goals.
