      Pros

      Nothing. Nothing. Nothing. Nothing. Nothing.

      Cons

      This “university” is a joke. Filled with rich entitled rude unederducated white kids who hate learning and will judge you based on your appearance and what you wear rather than what you say. If you are smart, run away for your sanity. It’s not your place. If you are not so smart, want to be discriminated based on your skin color and be harassed by your boss, stay. You can find no place like this.

      I worked at University of Tampa full-time

      Pros

      Good money, long summer and winter break.

      Cons

      Get ready to be judged solely by 19 year olds. Students are rich, rude and feel entitled. NTT titles changed to 'intructor' after 1 year. They don't honor those already hired when making any changes to faculty title or handbook. Very unprofessional colleagues. Last minute changes in teaching schedule: get ready to slog day in and out. Not sure if this a place to be if you are not white.

      I have been working at University of Tampa full-time for more than 20 years

      Pros

      Good benefits (+tuition), compressed work schedule in summers (3 day weekends) and generous PTO.

      Cons

      Low salaries for responsibilities, university has grown rapidly but has not increased support staff although their tasks and duties have grown exponentially.

      Advice to Management

      Better training for staff for new ERP instead of a love it or there's the door attitude. Being able to see the inadequacies of a system does not mean staff will not learn it but being forced to smile when a system is less efficient is unconscionable. The wiki is incomplete and would benefit with more professional videos. The university has an Ed Tech department which could improve the entire process, if they were included...
