    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Easy interviews - New Hire (NEO) - Easy Paid First Month of Training - Student Life - LGBTQ positive - Gift Week of PTO - Christmas party (If your dept let's you leave early enough to beat the 1-3 hour line) -Staff outings per department -Most TLs that came from entry level positions are always the best and most understanding - Scholarship opportunities for tenured employees (different options with different criteria) - Teachers / Lab instructors really care about student experience - Get to experience some events for an hour depending on department - Some of Management / Leadership want to see you progress... SOME - Flexible schedule DEPENDING ON DEPARTMENT <- (management is very understanding that you have responsibilities, or other important matters like kids, second job for some, taking care of family)

    Cons

    - Executive and Management always redirect questions about possible pay increase from staff by "Writing it down and discussing it further" or staying silent and moving on to different topic - If on phones prepared to be Yelled, Screamed, Cussed at, after annoying potential students to the point of their discomfort (This usually ends with potential student removing or terminating enrollment due to harassment) - Executive and leadership care more about quantity than quality - Most phone workers (support, Tech support, CEG, OEG, AA, Admissions, Limbo) look forward to meetings just because they can breathe and can be off the phones for more than 30 seconds without getting a call - You will live strapped to a phone if you work in a phone working department - Benefits are good if you can afford them (benefits will take about 15% of your paycheck) - EVERY Department has a high school style of culture (cliques, outcasts, favorites, disliked) - Pay is bad (especially compared to surrounding universities) Workload is heavy - OVERTIME IS LIMITED depending on department - The hardest workers get paid the least (read that again) - Management doesn't care about work overload - Sense of Urgency is used by management (causing workers to feel stressed and confused about primary objectives and goals) - There will be a point you will feel stuck and will no longer be able to progress and be forced to make a decision to either leave full sail as a whole or move onto other department (staff call this the wall) - They will promote most liked and ignore the hard work of others - If private slack rooms could be seen you would really see how staff feel about their superiors - ENTRY LEVEL FULL SAIL EMPLOYEES CANNOT AFFORD HOUSING IN CENTRAL FLORIDA UNLESS WORKING INSANE HOURS OF OT OR ARE LIVING AN HOUR PLUS AWAY - Employees have a minimum wage, minimum effort type of mentality affecting enrolling students and student life - If you don't fit the agenda work life and mental health will be affected
