      Pros

      You work in a mini-city. Want coffee? 5 different places to choose from. Plenty of food options, great environment, and activity everywhere you go. Great benefits, especially the Tuition Waiver Program. Its commitment to professional development.

      Cons

      Salary is lower than standard rates elsewhere. Administrative processes can feel sluggish or disorganized (FIU employee portal is a nightmare to navigate sometimes).

      Love working here. Laid back, some months are busier than others. But most are nice, helpful and understanding.

      Some leaders are demanding and pretentious. Not all though.

      Review of the full spectrum of FIU employment

      Pros

      Willing to train you if you make mistakes, even for full time positions. Great community of friendly coworkers. Stable work and if something happens (i.e. Pandemic) FIU has everyone's back. Pleasant and clean work environments. FIU takes great care to generally remodel spaces in old condition.

      Cons

      Low pay in general (Part-time positions). Low pay for the volume of work (many of the full time positions). Sometimes hard to find help on projects or answers to complicated questions because the university is still relatively young. You may have to search high and low for people who have the answers you need depending on the subject.

      Pros

      I love my coworkers, it's a very family environment and they are always willing to teach you new things. It's a smaller team compared to the rest of the university but you will definitely walk out with knowledge and friends.

      Cons

      The pay is average and opportunity to grow can be limited at times

      Pros

      One of the best benefits packages you will come across, great incentives for employees like tuition waiver, sick leave and sick pool, lots of vacation leave, supportive work environment.

      Cons

      Few opportunities for growth and opportunities for professional advancement require championship of leadership otherwise they are few and far in between. Lots of professional development and learning but job ceilings that are very difficult to advance past.
