    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Florida SouthWestern State College full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The mission to educate really is there. The staff really is student-focused. The weather is great, and the two yearly breaks (winter and spring) are a nice bonus.

    Cons

    The culture encourages some people to try to benefit from the work of others. Also, too much emphasis is placed on the flashy. If it makes someone look good, money will be allocated. If there is a boring best practice that actually benefits the institution, it is downplayed.

    Advice to Management

    Look at your departmental managers a little more closely.
