    I have been working at Florida Memorial University full-time

    Pros

    Beautiful campus. Very dedicated faculty and staff.

    Benefits have become a thing of the past and what remains is very expensive and sub-par.

    Advice to Management

    Worry about the big picture - growing enrollment and finding donors. Hire the right people to get the job done.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Florida Memorial University full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Able to acquire new knowledge as you are required to do many jobs at times. Flexibility.

    Cons

    Pay is not good unless you are in upper management or a VP. Always in fear of losing your job due to budget cuts. Benefits gets worse every year. No more 401k matching, higher copays and less coverage with the health insurance. Lots of gossiping.

    Advice to Management

    Drop the dead weight. Keep the employees that produce good work and get rid of the ones that don't. Stop keeping people around because you like them. Most VPs shouldn't be VPs. They don't have the knowledge or the people skills to effectively get the job done.
