    I have been working at University of Miami full-time

    Pros

    Tuition benefits are great if you need an undergraduate degree, graduate degrees become very pricey

    Cons

    1. Poor Leadership
    2. Poor managers are permitted to stay beyond their time and thus create toxic environments
    3. Salaries border on slave wages

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reevaluate salary bands, and really analyze managers to see if they truly are successful or merely creating smoke and mirrors

    Pros

    The culture in the lab was extremely laid back and the schedule was very flexible. You could take a day off whenever you needed.

    Cons

    Machines would break down causing you to rerun samples over and over. Project goals would change that would benefit some but leave others with barely any work hours for a whole semester.

    Great benefits, including Heath insurance and the opportunity to continue your studies at UM, not only that but your kids can go for free once you meet the minimum required years of work, job stability.

    Cons

    Salaries are not on part with other institutions, very demanding and some times stressful environment which cause a lot of people to quit( working at a hospital is not for everyone), opportunities to grow are sometimes limited.
