    I worked at Florida Gulf Coast University full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great people; growing university; lots going on

    Cons

    Administration could show better care for the employees; toxic employees are not fired/removed early enough (while a small percentage, it's still bothersome).

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Great co-workers and fair bosses.

    Cons

    There's a little bit of lack when it comes to communications between the office and the staff.

    Advice to Management

    Pay a little bit more attention to what goes on with the booth.

    I worked at Florida Gulf Coast University part-time

    Pros

    One of the best places I have ever worked. The staff was always friendly and productive. There was always room for increased pay and some promotion. The type of support was straightforward and I learned a lot about different systems. This is an ideal place to work for a college student or someone who likes an educational environment.

    Cons

    Pay was based on budget, although this was mostly out of their control.

    Advice to Management

    I do not have particular advice because the management was wonderful.

    Great environment, free room, fun activities, great community, great environment, free room, fun activities, great community, great environment, close to beach

    Cons

    Not enough pay at only $700 /semester, too much work for little pay, very time consuming work, not worth it for the money and free room

    I worked at Florida Gulf Coast University full-time

    Pros

    Located in a beautiful area of Florida. Campus is very new and nice.

    Cons

    Little to no support or respect for research. I understand the emphasis is on teaching, but here it is to the exclusion of research.

    Advice to Management

    Your school has moved past the 500 student, teaching only college that was started. You need to treat research with the same respect you give to teaching.

    I worked at Florida Gulf Coast University full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good medical/ benefits
    Decent paid time off... if your supervisor/VP allows you to take it

    Cons

    Administration runs a toxic and abusive work environment. When you try to report it, you will be attacked and then the cover-up scheme rolls into place. There's a reason the university has a ridiculously high employee turnover rate. FGCU was a place that had so much potential, but will continue down the downward spiral until a few 'founding employees' are shown the door.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees the way you would like to be treated regardless of your level of self respect. Have a moral conscience.

  8. "Adjunct"

    I worked at Florida Gulf Coast University part-time

    Pros

    Helpful and cooperative staff for adjuncts and part-time workers.

    Cons

    Hard to get more than part-time work.

    Advice to Management

    Continue providing support to adjuncts and part time staff. Need more full time opportunities.

    Normal things such as inept department heads and bothersome coworkers.

    My advice would be to find ways to manage your stress so you dont feel so slighted by others.
