    I have been working at University of Central Florida full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The culture at UCF is one that is aspirational, entrepreneurial, and gives you the sense that you are working at a place that is very special.

    Cons

    Parking is, well, challenging considering that we have 66,000 students and 11,000 employees. A tuition freeze by the Governor has made budgets challenging although President Hitt has done a magnificent job. We received raises when so many others did not..

    Advice to Management

    The next President is key and we have an outstanding candidate right there in Millican Hall today.
