    If you're looking for promotion there's a risk as you have to interview for any open positions.

    I worked at University of Central Florida full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It can be an exciting environment and the program is growing! The Executive Staff is committed to the Mission Statement and the Student-Athletes; looking towards the future to make UCFAA an example for all of College Athletics to follow. The talent among the staff is unmeasurable, the opportunity to work with such individuals and learn from them is in itself a pleasure. Additionally, there is a lot of work which feels rewarding when projects are successfully executed and completed. Health and Medical benefits are second to none; some of the best I have seen anywhere. Lastly, NIKE gear and apparel. Staff is provided an allotment each year and in some cases you get to select your own items.

    Cons

    The rich keep getting richer. UCFAA is a top to bottom organization. Those at the top are rewarded first, regularly and if anything remains trickles down to the rest. If you have the means and skill set to generate revenue you have the potential to reach the top, but be warned any failure means a trip back to the bottom and a foot out the door. Because of this type of work environment and lower than average financial compensation (unless you are at the top) UCFAA has one of the highest turnover rates (top to bottom) of any organization in the Country. Additionally, UCFAA rarely promotes within, except for those already at the top, or if you count those at the bottom who get appointed different assignments which mean more work, with no additional pay or title change.

    Advice to Management

    Don't continue to sit on the top and look down. Visit and speak with your staff. They are talented and incredible people. The program will flourish when you begin looking internally at your flaws, healing and repairing the cancer which has led to low morale and high turnover. Do not continue only to look at how you appear to the outside world, but truly seek out the concerns and opinions of those who keep the cogs turning.

    I worked at University of Central Florida full-time

    Pros

    Teaching online provides flexibility. The instructional designers are a great resource and offer wonderful support. There is strong union support.

    Cons

    The leadership is not consistent across departments. It is important to join the union to protect yourself, because some will allow and support egregious and unsubstantiated claims that can damage your career. Class sizes are large.
