      Pros

      Managers truly care, tight knit community, OT is available always, which is great if you need to earn extra income. Respectful coworkers, and benefits.

      Cons

      Depending on the department, you will more than likely be working at a desk all day, but that’s something that comes with the job.

      Pros

      I loved the marketing team overall. Full sail takes care of people and my manager was amazing! I loved the events and marketing for a college. The benefits were good too. I loved the holiday parties

      Cons

      The salary was a tad too low. The only reason I left was for a 30 percent pay jump. But I’d come back to full sail in a heartbeat

      Adaptable scheduling, Fair benefits package, Enjoyable work environment, Encourages creativity & continued education

      Cons

      Much of the executive team is comprised of a "good ole boys" network of decades-long Full Sail vets. This has led to multiple instances of internal group-think that stifles corporate innovation.
