    I worked at Florida State College at Jacksonville full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There are many dedicated faculty.

    Cons

    Administration has lost its way. It is far worse than under the previous administration. There were many dedicated people who gave a lot to the college. They worked extremely hard to implement the new Financial software. For their efforts they were let go because the new leadership, who were not in place at the beginning of the project, did not understand the requirements of bringing a new system up in the short time frame set by senior leadership. The college lost many talented people in the process.

    Advice to Management

    The Board should seek new senior leadership to make needed changes before it is too late. The morale is simply horrible and many talented people are being lost for all the wrong reasons. Many are being kept for all the wrong reasons.

    I have been working at Florida State College at Jacksonville full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The vacation and sick time is wonderful, plus we take a lot of college holidays off and have a reduced, 36-hour work week in the summer. The health benefits are also good.

    Cons

    There is not a lot of opportunity for upward mobility, nor are there decent raises. In addition, it's very much a top-down organization. Many of the high-level administrators are not familiar with daily operations, yet they make decisions that influence these operations without consulting personnel who are. There are frequent and major reorganizations that make it clear that company loyalty is not rewarded.

    Advice to Management

    My advice would be to make it easier for quality workers to have a pathway upwards, both in terms of salary and responsibility.
