    I have been working at Florida State University full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I am not a Florida State graduate, however that never mattered. The Office makes you feel like you are a part of the family, the community, and makes you proud to represent the University. It is a fast paced, high intense, environment, but they are supportive and understanding. One huge pro is that the Office is in the exterior of the stadium, so parking is easy and you won't get stuck in the normal campus traffic. It's also nice because when you need to take a stress break you can walk around inside the stadium which is generally 15 degrees cooler than the exterior.

    Cons

    It's an admissions office for one of the larger and high profile universities in the country. With this comes a high volume of applications and a lot of conversation regarding things outside of the Office. If an athlete gets in trouble or the University makes an unpopular decision, you will have to address it for a few days. However, the Office is great about providing the best way to address these matters.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Even when the staff is frustrated with a decision, I feel we always understood the magnitude of chooses being made and how the chooses were being made from a macro, not micro, perspective.

    Pros

    Good over all, you can tap the knowledge of other colleges or departments for advice or contribute to the community. Plenty of professional groups you can join to increase your abilities within the FSU IT infrastructure.

    Cons

    Parking is a hassle unless you land an office off campus. They also charge you a fee The bureaucracy can be tedious at times.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees as the valuable resource they are, mentor and train them to be as effective as possible. These things will keep them engaged and make them a better asset for the company.

    I have been working at Florida State University full-time

    Pros

    The position is for two years. It gives teaching opportunities to new Ph.D. You keep doing your research, searching for permanent positions, and get some teaching experiences. Colleagues are very friendly and supportive.

    Cons

    I don't see many negative aspects to talk about. You are not part of the faculty and therefore you do not participate in faculty meetings. You are institutionally an outsider.
