    "Boca Ground campus RULES"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Current Employee - Director
    Current Employee - Director

    I have been working at Everglades University full-time

    Pros

    I have been with Admissions for almost 6 years and feel that I have changed so many lives. The Boca ground campus has grown tremendously over the past year because we truly implement "students first" philosophy in every department! There is nothing more rewarding then meeting with students, assisting them through the process, and the continued relationships you have with them while they are here and post-graduation

    Cons

    It is not easy to be on the forefront of a growing university so if you are NOT determined, motivated, and willing to be part of the growth then this is not a good fit. This is only a con if you do not like to work.

    Advice to Management

    The Boca Ground campus has the best managers! We all support one another and work as a team! Your VP sets the tone and ours, Dr. Arlette apetersson, is one of the best I have ever worked for; she carries herself with the upmost professionalism and respect so you only want to work harder. She knows how to deliver a message and provides the support for us to get our jobs done!

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

    Pros

    I have been promoted after being with the company and working hard for a year and a half. The organization has been extremely fair to me and has really treated me great. Some days are harder than others as this is a very fast paced work environment and if you are not a hard worker, organized and able to multi-task this may not be a good fit. Also the University is growing and does promote within for those who actually work! If you slack off and have a sense of entitlement and do not work hard for your growth it will not come. Hard work is rewarded!

    Cons

    If you are not a hard worker you will not be able to grow… The University is student focused.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing the University is growing and the students and HARD workers are happy. Haters will always hate…

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

    Pros

    I can honestly say I really enjoy working at Everglades University. Since my very first day I have put forth my best effort and am proof that hard work truly pays off. I have been promoted twice and now am into my second year as managing my own department. The biggest reward is when a student recognizes you at graduation and gives you a big hug because they are so thankful for the positive impact that you have made on their life!

    Cons

    This is a school that puts their students first! This means that you have to be a team player and motivated with a great work ethic! If you do not thrive in a fast paced environment you will not do well because we take the time to show each student the same level of respect and customer service that they deserve.

    Advice to Management

    Keep putting our student's first and the rest will follow.

    I have been working at Everglades University part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This Institution is a step up from other local competing colleges with their Leadership in the Tampa location. They are very professional, yet sincere in their warm demeanor! The way they treat their Adjuncts makes one want to continue being a part of their environment. Its simply a very positive setting and enjoyable to be an Instructor there!

    Cons

    If I had to mention one, maybe the term or length of a course could be a little longer. But it is satisfactory. I just hate when a student has a dilemma, for example, like a health issue and is out for a week or two and they miss a lot of the course.

    Advice to Management

    Keep spreading the Genuine feeling of concern about your Staff and your Students!! This one great attribute helps to keeps Instructors wanting to be a part of your facility. In addition, by not sacrificing the integrity of the courses by letting students go early, helps to make these students proud and have more ownership in that they are attending an accredited institution.

    Working for EU has really taught me a lot about my self and others. The staff is great, we are a well oiled machine lead by a dedicated and caring VP.
