    I have been working at University of Tampa part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Laid back environment. Ability to work at own pace. Excellent working around class schedule. 3 day weekends all summer. Tampa is a beautiful city to work in if you enjoy being outdoors.

    Cons

    Very hot during the summer. Somewhat of a silo culture. Relationships across campus are important to get full information on anything.

    I worked at University of Tampa full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Beautiful campus, great faculty, casual atmosphere.

    Cons

    Micromanaged to the nth degree with senior level staff vying for approval on the backs of the staff. No recourse for staff complaints. The Human Resources department does not support employees.

    I worked at University of Tampa as a contractor for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Beautiful, historic campus in the middle of South Tampa. Great support and enough autonomy to do your own research and teaching. Laid back supervisors who trust you to do a great job! They are there when you need them, but don't micromanage you. Great equipment, both new and historic! Fun place! Motivated students!

    Cons

    It's slow moving up the ranks and the pay is a little bit low, but you make up for it with a great work environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better parking?

    Pros

    Good location, great people, great benefits. A lot of interaction with other offices; since it's on the smaller end of a mid-sized school, you know the department of Student Affairs relatively well.

    Cons

    Salaries ARE a bit lower (private institution), but the benefits and opportunities for personal growth are phenomenal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Varies by department.
