    I have been working at University of Tampa full-time

    Pros

    - Benefits package is decent, great health benefits, dental and vision benefits are great, institution adds $100/month into your HSA account, RALLY rewards program is on point, ok on prescriptions
    - The people who work here who are great are truly fantastic people
    - The campus is gorgeous!

    Cons

    - Compensation is perhaps the worst of all private institutions in the state. Definitely worse than state institutions
    - Encourages maintenance of the status quo - not the place for innovation, creativity, and freedom to learn and grow. Prefers to hire and keep "yes people"
    - High turnover rate - many employees are dissatisfied and unfilfilled, but stay because they have families to feed, most other folks leave in less than three years
    - Leadership at the top is disrespectful, inconsiderate, and manage/lead with fear based tactics that create anxiety and distrust
    - The folks who work here that are not great people are petty, defensive, passive-agressive and judgmental

    I worked at University of Tampa full-time

    Pros

    Colleagues who are smart and willing to work collaboratively to get things done.
    New facilities - investment in new buildings and latest technology, equipment is high.

    Cons

    Lack of collaboration between administration and faculty.
    Service-driven approach to higher-education: students are customers, faculty service providers.

    Advice to Management

    Focus less on the veneer, on the appearance of excellence and more on substance, what you can do for faculty and students to enhance the quality of the education.

    I have been working at University of Tampa full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Downtown location, open air campus, publicity, progressive faculty, truly smart co-workers

    Cons

    Leadership is a bunch of sheeple, staff conformity (not innovation) is rewarded, pay is stupidly below average (staff make the same or less than fresh grads...demoralizing)

    Advice to Management

    Upgrade HR, they are as old school as the system they just transitioned from to Workday. Pay your staff 25% more than what they are being paid now; God knows there's plenty of money left over in revenue each year to afford a decent pay raise for the masses. Reward innovative staff!!! It makes no sense to be proud about putting up an Innovation & Collaboration Center when you poo-poo the ideas that staff come up with take this place to the next level. Staff aren't students!!!

    Pros

    I enjoy being able to make my own hours and having a boss that listens to you. Tom Kolbe treats his workers right and does a great job!

    Cons

    Sometimes there is not enough work to work consistent hours week to week. Otherwise everything is perfectly fine.

    Advice to Management

    The sports information department should receive more funding to get students more involved with sports.
