Outstanding colleagues and Dean of Students
ASSOCIATE VICE PRESIDENT & DEAN OF STUDENTS OFFICE (Current Employee), Boca Raton, FLMarch 2, 2014
Pros: devoted staff
A typical day involves handling calls from parents, students and /or directors from other departments requesting immediate help for their problems. I might be responding to a student's turmoil over an impending withdrawal from school, an angry, distraught parent, frantic about his/her child, arranging meetings, writing letters, managing students, maintaining – more... calendars; providing direction, counsel, or guidance to any number of visitors to the Dean of Students office. My co-workers are professional, committed and caring to our population. My boss is a charismatic, amazing dedicated Dean who works tirelessly in our department and manages a united team. The hardest part of my job is not being able to help a student because his need may be out of my purview and the most enjoyable part is when a student feels encouraged, motivated or simply acknowledged by my short interaction with him. – less

Evaluation of Florida Atlantic University
Computer Programmer/Analyst (Current Employee), Boca Raton, FLAugust 6, 2013
Pros: work in non-pressure environment
Cons: basically stuck doing same job tasks for past several years
Florida Atlantic University has allowed me to self learn for the most part, Crystal Reports, used in reporting and in fine tuning skills with Visual Basic .NET and SQL. I am very independent worker, and my supervisor hardly ever requests any reports or other task. Each day, I go through a checklist of items I am following up on and try to get some programming – more... tasks completed. My co-workers in the office are nice and help support the complete operations of the department. I think the hardest part of the job is waiting for answers, (i.e. call backs) from support or others helping on an issue or question. The enjoyable part of the job is being able to write programs to accomplish a certain task or project. – less
