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

    Pros

    Great benefits and responsive HR. Good time off. There's opportunity to move around on campus for other positions in various departments for growth and higher pay.

    Cons

    Compared to other institutions, the pay is slightly lower for comparable positions.

    Because FSU is steeped in tradition it can take a long time for something to change...or not change at all.

    Be flexible in trying new things even if it's been done that way for decades.

    Positive Outlook

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

    Pros

    Great place to work in a relaxed environment with flexibility to grow and work on projects with technologies you are interested in learning. There are also chances for publications in research journals with the work completed during the day to day projects.

    Cons

    Dealing with government sector clients narrows the projects available and sales to private companies is limited.

    Advice to Management

    Great job! The projects and encouragement to learn emerging technologies is great. Would like to see more incorporation of open source geospatial technologies but learning the ESRI platform is a great resource.
