  2. Perspective of working at the University of Florida

    I have been working at University of Florida

    Pros

    Being a land grant university it has provided ample opportunity for research. This allows people to grab fundings and enjoy huge networkings with people related to their research. Very good leadership but this can be based on the departments and colleges also. Overall a great place to work.

    Cons

    No any bitter experience that I know of. Anything that has occurred to other people might be an personnel issue. Great Gator Spirit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management is doing just fine and good. Hope to have some more research grants well distributed over departments.

  3. Good academia

    I worked at University of Florida full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Set in a small college town with warm climate
    Moderate cost of living with good access to comfortable housing

    Cons

    Isolated geography removed from major metropolitan area, regional airport access only
    Risk-averse administration choked in obstructive regulation, especially onerous with respect to grant submission, administration, and IRB/IACUC process
    State support for education is capricious

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Faculty would do much better if the administration got out of the way and let them do their job

    Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at University of Florida part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very flexible when it comes to switching schedule due to exams or breaks. I received quarterly raises based on work ethic

    Cons

    Very difficult getting a position without work study. Can't work more than 20 hours because they don't want to interfere with studies

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please make it easier for former employees to access their information from my.ufl when we need to look up past work schedules, pay and hours worked
