    I worked at University of Florida full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    We were encouraged to leave the office right when our work hours were up, given great vacation time and benefits. Energizing environment being around college students and academia.

    Cons

    I think the pay is comparable to other universities, which means it's usually lower than the business world, but your quality of life may be better.

    Pros

    I really like the staff in my department. There are also great benefits and the payroll system is very easy.

    I think the managers are really great but I wish they were more approachable. I feel like they are to some people but not to all.
