    Pros

    Flexible hours, great colleagues and easy going team

    Cons

    The expense for commuting and parking sucks and benefits are not that fantastic either, especially for a medical university. Disappointing really.

    Invest in some leadership training.

    I have been working at University of Miami full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It is a wanna-be corporate environment with too many office politics. The benefits come in great packages - health insurance, sick days, and PTO are great.

    Cons

    Underpaid. Office climate is awful - everyone always looks so unhappy. You sit in a cubicle all day, in a building with no windows; it's depressing. MD's and PhD's treat those who do not have the degrees like second class citizens. They are disrespectful and entitled. There is no team work here - you learn as you go because no one takes the time to train you on anything but they love to place blame when there's a mistake. If you like the stuffy facade of a corporate office, this place is perfect for you.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to manage better - be leaders not just managers going through the motions. UM staff come to work because they need a paycheck, not because they believe in what you are doing. Faculty gets paid SO much for all kinds of bogus titles; which they believe gives them the right to treat staff like scum. Fix this office climate and teach your managers how to be leaders, how to not be rude, and how to present themselves as professionals.
