    Good Entry Level IT Position, Could Use Touch-Ups

    Jan 26, 2023 - AV Student Technician in Tampa, FL
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Tons of extra time to work on coursework or relax. - Great way to learn tier 1 troubleshooting skills. - Great managers that are happy to teach and help. - Excellent way to grow a resume.

    Cons

    - The position is too simple at times and does not provide the worker with any useful follow-on knowledge. The systems used there are quite simple and student techs are not allowed to do much outside of calling for assistance from senior leads. Aside from checking wires and basic functionality (PC is on, sound works/doesn't work, etc.) it is an overly easy position to make easy money. - Must go to school to stay employed.

    Experience Highly Dependent on Department

    Jan 12, 2023 - Manager Fiscal and Business Administration in Tampa, FL
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    There are definitely some good things about USF. The campus is beautiful and my immediate colleagues were wonderful. If you are on an Admin line, the time off is very generous. Because departments have a good amount of flexibility, your experience will really depend on that college and/or department's policies as far as remote work.

    Cons

    One thing departments have no control over, is salaries, which are very low for the level of responsibility and expertise required to succeed in these positions. There is very little support from the college level and communication was murky. Training materials and documents were never up to date, if they existed. There were some trainings held, but even those documents were either incorrect or outdated. Time off for staff line positions is low, especially considering how much time Admin lines get off. There was also a lot of unhappiness over salaries and advancement and though this was shared with college leadership, either nothing was done or departments were strung along with a promise of future decisions.
