    Pros

    UM is the largest employer in south east Florida and has a great community reputation. UM's benefits are very competitive.

    Cons

    It is a very large institution so it can take a lot of time to get something done / accomplish something because different departments and layers need to review and approve.

    Advice to Management

    Keep rewarding high performers and developing succession plans, professional education / workforce engagement initiatives and continuous improvement management approach.
