    Pros

    Nobody knows how to do their jobs properly. This makes it virtually impossible to be accused for blame when you make a mistake because your peers will always be down on the same level.

    Cons

    The staff are extremely relaxed. The majority of their efforts are spent on appealing to the students. They focus more on looking and sounding like they're good at their jobs than actually doing any work. They have an endless array of excuses and routines for blaming others as the results of their own faults.

    Advice to Management

    Develop some real world skills, and learn how all businesses work instead of focusing on small time local niche opportunities and characters who will be gone within months. Wake up. Do your own job before you start telling others how to do theirs. Focusing entirely on your personal appearance and how others perceive you might be great for convincing someone to hire you, but chances are that you're not being paid well if you're still there and still feel the need to prioritize it. Try, instead, actually doing what's required for your department and job. Redundancy is a waste of time. Stop being redundant. It's a blatant sign of you projecting your personal insecurities onto your employees.

    I have been working at NSU (Nova Southeastern University) full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits , pay is okay and you get benefits through the door, you get a badge after 30 days and you get a shirt after 90days

    Cons

    The staff is ghetto, loud and unapproachable including the supervisor. The manager over the supervisor is creepy doesn't speak and hides behind corners to spy.

    Advice to Management

    . Once you are out of training they will pair you with miserable, unpleasant overweight women that will give you perfect examples of how to be cold to the ill.

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

    Pros

    NSU has a great campus for its students and above average PTO packages.

    Cons

    The job environment and opportunities offered to students are about what is expected for any university however for actual professional positions it is something else entirely.

    Overall morale is very low and part of that is because NSU seems to be well below the average payscale for virtually any role that is not senior management. Raises seem rarer then eclipses, in my time there I have seen whole teams cut in half yet asked to do more. It seems they have a real money and budget problem so I do not imagine these issues will be resolved soon.

    I also would not recommend the tuition waiver because even though it is an 80% discount for graduate classes NSU is already so incredibly expensive that it is still not a good deal for the "quality" of degree that you are getting. I would recommend to anyone and everyone to find education and work elsewhere

    Advice to Management

    The continued stifling of any growth or opportunity except for you and your friends is causing anyone with market value to become disgruntled and leave.

    Pros

    Great hours and conducive environment for learning new skills. Excellent benefits and retirement, some of the best.

    Management has it's favorites and it's had to advance.
