    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at University of North Alabama part-time

    Pros

    Having a job that works with student schedules is never a bad experience!

    Cons

    The local economy has ZERO redeeming value. When attending UNA PLAN AHEAD to RELOCATE IMMEDIATELY upon graduation - especially if you have student loans ready to go into repayment.

    Advice to Management

    Management does NOT need to be told what they already know. Nor is it the University's job to instruct local civic leadership on how to organize and structure their community. The fact that many former graduates complain that there is a disconnect about regional civic planning and how the University is positioned as a marketing factor shows that the majority of these complaints are not coming from graduates in the political science and history department.

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at University of North Alabama full-time

    Pros

    Benefits, 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.

    Cons

    The 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.

    I worked at University of North Alabama as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There was supervision and guidance but also a lot of independent research that led to furthering my knowledge and bolstering my aptitudes.

    Cons

    It was only a seasonal position but most are not like that.

    Keep up the good work.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Florence, AL
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Florence, AL

    Pros

    Great 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.

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

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

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Supportive team and stuff, fun experience and great point to put on the resume. Fun environment to work in.

    Cons

    Not enough compensation for the amount of work. Hard to enforce students preparation without assigning them any grades.

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