    I worked at NSU (Nova Southeastern University) full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    From the outside, Nova looks like a great place to work. Health benefits great. Close to the highway, local restaurants, and other business.

    Cons

    Once you are in, no raises in years. Only merit raises and that only base on if enrollment is up. There is no room for growth. The programs they push for is there medical or educational degrees.

    Advice to Management

    Add new degree programs in computers or multimedia fields. More advertisement about your other degree programs. Reward your employees more without them Nova, you would have been dead in the waters.

    I have been working at NSU (Nova Southeastern University) full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Closely knit community in learning environment

    Cons

    Unrealistic demands from staff for salary range. Company continues to cut and reduce benefits, including retirement cuts, education discount almost completely disappeared, health benefits reduced with increased costs, time-off policy on par with McDonalds, holiday time cuts, parking fee went up to $200, enrollment is down, lawsuits are up, and employees are paying for it. Job freezes over the past 5 years = 3. Reimbursement programs for certifications has been completely cut.

    Advice to Management

    Stop making the lower job positions make up for the lower enrollment and increased law suits. You should cut the top heavy directors that manage/direct one or two other directors
