    Great place to work

    Assistant to Vice President (Former Employee) Florence, AL

    ProsBenefits, culture, environment are great! Employees have the opportunity to have input into major decisions because of the "Shared Governance" concept. Tuition remission for employees, their spouses and children is very good.

    ConsThe general economy in Northwest Alabama is not good. It could be difficult for a spouse to obtain meaningful employment in this area other than the University.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    My UNA experience

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Florence, AL

    ProsGreat benefits.
    Peaceful city.
    Great weather.
    Good working environment.
    Colleagues are reasonable and respectful of each other
    Because of the relative small size of the city and the University, most people will know you by your name, which can be a pro or a con depending on your personality.

    ConsPolitics
    Florence is peaceful but a very small city
    UNA is on proration so bonuses or pay increases are out of question

    Advice to Senior ManagementSometimes the Management has a tendency to be a little autocratic. It would help to enlist more feedback from the mid and low level staff.

    Enjoyed my time at UNA...the students are wonderful...but politics not so much so

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe students are great leaders and so interested in growing and learning

    ConsManagement is not good about communicating (heard most 'news' from outside sources first) and excruciatingly hard work is expected but not really rewarded
