I worked at Florida International University full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Nice atmosphere on campus. Parking is easy to find. People friendly, good choices of restaurants on campus. You get the state benefits package which is very good. Employer matches IRA contributions and you are already vested. Facilities are relatively new and actually have windows so you don't feel like you're working in a dungeon.

Cons

Poor place to do a post-doc. Lack of organizations representing post-doc's interests. Total lack of interest in helping post docs find positions when they finish.

Advice to Management

Need more collaboration with other groups.

    I have been working at Florida International University full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Is always becoming better, and growing. To a certain extent growth has been thought out, and investment has gone into areas where students can be employed.

    Cons

    Is rather a disorganized organization, as every department / college tries to do things as it sees fit.

    Advice to Management

    To watch for the pitfalls of growth, as there is unnecessary increase of bureaucratic positions.
