    Friendly environment with many opportunities for professional development at the beginning of your career. Great health care benefits.

    Slow to advance and when advanced only given a percentage increase of your salary. Difficult to advance salary in a meaningful way.

    Pros

    Friendly work atmosphere with a beautiful campus to work at. Facilities are top of the line and provide all necessary equipment and training.

    Cons

    Communication between departments and within departments is lacking in many areas. Some staff members do not take the time to learn the basics of other areas of business which leads to sometimes poor customer service.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a more comprehensive training program to better inform employees of other aspects of business.

  6. I worked at the UM Architecture Library while I was a student. It was a great place to work with flexible hours.

    I worked at University of Miami

    Pros

    My hourly pay was increased each semester that I continued to work at the library. There were only two full-time employees of the library but they were great to work with and the rest of the employees were students.

    Cons

    Although it increased with each semester, the pay was still not very high. However, it was enough to live on as a student.

  9. Graduate Student, Humanities

    Current Employee - Graduate Research Assistant in Coral Gables, FL
    Current Employee - Graduate Research Assistant in Coral Gables, FL

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

    Pros

    Lots of top-notch, productive, publishing, creative people in the Humanities faculty. Some will be better at teaching than others. Lots of money, lots of resources. Administration is not a fan of the Humanities (None of the Deans are, themselves, Humanities profs), so expect financial cutbacks and shrinking of resources.

    Cons

    Job Prospects: A problem with the Humanities is that, those who are faculty now got their jobs probably before the Higher Ed Crisis, meaning, they don't know about the bleak job market, and so don't truly prepare you for it. You have to really prepare not to become an Academic with your PhD, and instead go into what is called "alternative academic" careers.

    Climate: As UM moves to more of a coporate model, it will become more and more of a cutthroat environment: grad student against grad student, faculty in it for themselves. If you are a competitive type, channel those instincts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    uh, academics are famously not open to "advice."

    I have been working at University of Miami

    Pros

    I work with a very passionate staff that understands how their contribution assist with providing a more improved patient experience. At UHealth Connect, the leadership is the best that I have ever worked for. They are open to new ideas, and they encourage and support your professional development. The work life balance is great, and the staff really makes coming to work a treat. The group overall just brings out the best in you.

    Cons

    Communication and documentation of procedures could be better, but we are working towards perfecting this

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing!
