    I have been working at Florida Atlantic University full-time

    Pros

    Student relationships, instructional colleagues, technology improvements

    Cons

    Ineffective communication from top to bottom; pay; advancement opportunities; many staff members are great, but our particular college has antiquated "can't do" type staff; everything is "average" here; parking is atrocious and paying for it is truly unacceptable for employees

    Improve communication so we can act within a cohesive culture and know what's going on; we can do better as a culture and an institution
