    Pros

    Loved our work study office atmosphere. We all worked extremely hard, and our supervisors were very flexible and understanding regarding our schedules and studies. Pay was spectacular for a work study job.

    Cons

    I wish there was more loyalty for hiring grads! I'm applying for a full-time position now, and the process is cumbersome, and I haven't received any responses yet. I have worked extremely hard for UM both in my classes and working for the company, and I don't feel like it's paying off yet.

    Advice to Management

    Hire your graduates, and make your HR process more expedient and simple. It's great to be a Miami Hurricane, but post-grad has been ridiculous.

    Pros

    Dynamic, widely known private university with good benefits packages, diverse employment opportunities, avidly loyal alumni, and lots of attributes to make its community feel proud of "the U."An international student body rising in caliber every year, more than a dozen schools and countless distinguished programs and institutes, lots of exciting research and cultural activities, extremely bright people, highly respected medical school and health system that offers care to UM employees at a discount, beautiful main campus in Coral Gables, and of course world-famous sports teams to root for.

    Cons

    Not easy to get your foot in the door, even when you already work here! HR process is cumbersome and despite attempts to build morale, etc., many employees, especially non-tenure faculty members such as lecturers, feel undervalued and are drastically underpaid. Like any big organization, it has its intensely political aspects and life can be a bit unpredictable, especially when you get to the "V" or the "C" suite level, so if that is your goal / path, proceed with caution.

    Advice to Management

    Make the HR process smarter and less cumbersome. Beef up internal communications and morale programs. Commit to greater transparency. Implement a true recourse process for employees with grievances.

    Pros

    UM offers some great benefits to its employees and has a very nice retirement package. Large campus allows for many opportunities for development. One of the best places to work in South Florida.

    Cons

    Pay is low and noncompetitive for current employees seeking a promotion.

    Advice to Management

    Provide tangible opportunities for career growth for employees and provide better salary incentives to employees with exceptional work ethics and histories. Failure to provide great employee incentives causes UM to lose the brightest to other organizations unnecessarily.
