    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 worked at Everglades University full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I️ have a hard time of thinking of any as they are very cutthroat and don’t invest in their employees. Don’t trust the positive reviews because they are forced or written by the president herself to boost her ego.

    Cons

    Honestly it’s terrible to be baited into a job were the outlook is not in your favor. I️ have sales experience but this job was just crazy. Expectations are unrealistic and it’s hard to sale a school that you don’t believe in because they are ripping students off.

    Advice to Management

    Just change the name of your school and drop the tuition. You have done this in the past due to poor reviews.

    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 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 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

    Nothing good but they pay a little more than average higher ed jobs

    Cons

    It's by far the worse Job I currently have! The reviews are false. Trust me they are all made up by upper management to hide the truth and to boost they horrible rating. Please don't ever apply here because your life will be impacted! Worse management from top to bottom!
