    I have been working at Florida SouthWestern State College full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Location, location, location. Working in the paradise of SWFL is amazing. No state taxes. Free employee health insurance. Great benefits. FSW is more organized than before. Offices such as HR, Advising, Financial Aid, and Bursar have some amazingly competent, talented, and thought leaders.

    Cons

    The Peter Principle can be an issue here. Learn to have Crucial Conversations by analyzing how to make various leadership styles feel SAFE. Find your lane and stay in it at FSW. Must show and know your worth FAST. Then, stand your ground.

    Advice to Management

    Don't miss the forest for the trees. Respect and appreciation goes so much further than a dollar ever will. Work hard to recognize TRUE loyal dedicated contributors to the success of the College.

    I worked at Florida SouthWestern State College full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The employees really care about the students and other employees. The faculty are great people. Student services have undergone changes and are so much better than three years ago. You need to take care of everyone; not just the higher ups. Staff and faculty are ignored. Unfortunately, the administration doesn't understand how to manage employees or a business. Management by fire and a spinning compass.

    Cons

    The administration doesn't care. They just get the job done good or bad. Unfortunately, that mindset usually means bad. Plus, they change so often I am not sure they have enough time to evaluate what they are doing.

    Advice to Management

    Stop and listen to your employees and faculty. You can't just plan on doing it, wait 3 years and then rush it into place without a plan.
