    I have been working at Florida SouthWestern State College full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The main Lee campus is beautiful, with many trees and a lot of lakes full of turtles. It is relatively quiet, though there are plenty of events if one would like to attend. Currently, there is a nice Farmer's Market on Fridays. The food at the on campus cafeteria is good. Staff are friendly. Recently remodeled buildings.

    Cons

    It is located in Florida, which can be a challenging place for higher education. Some long-time employees were recently dismissed and it is unclear why. Things like that can be hard on moral for existing employees.

    Advice to Management

    None at this time.

    I have been working at Florida SouthWestern State College full-time

    Pros

    FSW offers a beautiful workplace and encourages new ideas to meet the needs of our students and employees. Benefits and generous time off from work is enough to offset lower wages for this region.

    Cons

    Salaries are lower than market for my position.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management should be more visible to employees by walking around campus more.
