    Pros

    Great company, room for advancement, lots of training and professional development! My Vice President is AMAZING and the President is AWESOME! We have cool cutting edge programs! I am proud of the career choice I made coming to EU and also the advancement I have been given as are many of my co-workers!! If you are a good employee there is room to grow! Most of the managers I work with have grown from within the company! We are adding campuses which is also exciting! Happy "current"employee!

    Cons

    Yes, you have to work while at work....so if you don't like the basics then don't apply.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up to good work! Thank you for giving my the opportunity to grow!

    I have been working at Everglades University full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I love our University and the people I work with! The programs we offer are cutting edge and innovative which is exciting! We have a lot of growth happening which also allows career advancement. Overall very happy to be a part of the team. I have worked for the company for over 5 years and have enjoyed my job.

    Cons

    This is a great place to grow and advance if you have a good attitude & want to help our students. I have advanced and grown in my career professionally. The negative reviews need the names of those writing the reviews! That would explain the content. We have a great team and the team knows it. So do the students.

    Advice to Management

    We are doing great and growing. We have a strong team and University. Glad to be here and thankful for the opportunity!

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

    Pros

    You are faced with many opportunities to challenge yourself and learn new things everyday. Our VP has always welcomed new ideas to promote a healthy working environment, student growth as well as personal growth. Her leadership continues to direct the campus in a positive direction.

    In 2016 I was fortunate enough to have been given the opportunity to take advantage of the company's TA. I received my MBA allowing me the growth to be promoted to my current position. Thank you always Dr. Petersson for all your encouragement, & President Mollis for the opportunity. Go EU!

    Cons

    Working environment is very fast paced and you must be able to work hard to stay focused. There is a realistic expectation that everyone on the team should work hard to do their job and get it done. That isn't for everyone so you must stay committed and management is supportive in that.

    Advice to Management

    Continue on the current path of supporting campus V.P.s and making improvements where needed.

    I have been working at Everglades University full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Having worked at several colleges prior to coming EU I am thrilled with my decision. The team is excellent, friendly and my experience has been very positive. The attention to the students is exceptional and the social media reviews are accurate! This is a great school, with hard working people. In addition I have learned a lot and grown professionally. I have been invited to attend several professional development seminars and have met fantastic peer contacts. Overall I would recommend working at EU to anyone who is professional & wants to grow! They give employees amazing opportunities for advancement.

    Cons

    I personally don't have any cons in my job! I have a good salary and benefits. Like most places there are complainers & typically they are the ones not working & should simply leave and spare the good employees the drama! This team is professional and fair & I am happy to be on the team.

    Advice to Management

    Excited to keep growing and advancing continue to give employees this opportunity.

    I have been working at Everglades University full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Everglades University gave it's employees paid time off before the storm and after because they care about us. The campus VP at the Sarasota campus also provided a hot meal for the students and staff everyday for the whole first week we were back. What other company - let alone school did that!

    Cons

    We work hard but it is appreciated.

    Advice to Management

    Keep caring about the students, faculty and staff. It shows.

    Pros

    My campus Vice President Dr. Petersson heard that Publix would be getting a delivery of water today because many stores are out of water because of the hurricane so she went out and picked of water for all of the employees that could not find water. What a great boss and a really kind hearted person. It's the people like her that makes this a great place to work . Thanks Dr.P

    Pros

    I have been with EU for 7 months now as campus security officer and I am very happy here. My security company (G4S) has assigned me to the most rewarding post location so far. President Mollis along with the Executive Team and VPs work really hard to provide a happy work environment for the staff and support for the students. The president along with everyone else weather its' staff members, professors, or students treat me with respect and understanding. The president never stops, she is constantly on the go. She is a hard worker, team player, and very passionate about her work for the school. She is awesome. Everyone respects one another and treat each other with tremendous amount of respect. I am so happy that i am fortunate enough to be part of this great team here at EU and i would not want to be anywhere else.

    Cons

    so far so good for me, all is well.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to keep a great competent and skillful staff

    Pros

    I absolutely love working for Everglades University, the workplace culture doesn't get much better than Everglades. The students, staff and faculty are great people to work with, the short time that I've been here at Everglades I can only say great things so far. Everyone has been so welcoming since I've been here, Everglades is an awesome place to work in. President Mollis and her great Executive team along with her VPs are so passionate about the work they do here, they genuinely care about their employees and faculty. In short I love it here and Everglades I wouldn't want to be anywhere else.

    Cons

    None at all I'm blessed to be working with a wonderful staff and faculty great environment and the students are great as well.

    Pros

    Working at Everglades University has been the most rewarding experience of my career to date. My Campus Vice President, Paul, and Dean, Dr. Rosie have always been supportive with regards to my professional growth and development.
    I am fortunate to work with a staff and faculty who are 100 percent committed to the success of our students. Having effective leadership in our corner makes that commitment a whole lot easier.
