Senior Fiscal Assistant (Current Employee), Jupiter, FLMay 7, 2012
Pros: great benefits
Cons: low salary
This is the ideal place to be if you do not want a challenging environment. The staff are very laid back and there is work as usually which is very productive.There is always a lot of work to keep you busy, but there was not enough compensation.

Friendly environment with friendly customers.
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee), Boca Raton, FLApril 28, 2012
Pros: helping customers, entertaining the students.
Cons: unorganized management, unprofessional workers.
Nice friendly work environment with customers who enjoy relaxing here playing a little pool, board games, watching TV and/or using the computer lab for studying. What I've learned form this job is how to better my people skills, give out important and accurate information that's needed. The co-workers with whom i work with, only a hand full of them – more... are professional about what they do and are great and fantastic to work with. Others are not so professional at times and are never willing to work as a team which is something not just some of us should but every single one of us should do. The hardest part of this job is sometimes trying to keep angry and upset customers calm after they've been repeatedly given the wrong information. In other words, trying to fix what someone else on campus has messed up is the hardest part of my job. The most enjoyable part of my job is seeing the smiles on peoples faces after i'm done helping them, the smiles and laughter I share with the students here at my job is my top reason for showing up for work everyday. – less

Could be a fun place if management really cared about workers not just the business they bring in or retain.
Registration Officer (Former Employee), Davie, FLApril 28, 2012
Pros: benefits are excellent. paid holidays.
Cons: workspace not conducive to workplace security.
The University does not require equal accountability in all departments where workload issues are concerned especially when transitioning into new system databases which I might add here has been problematic. In the name of student retention the University has placed too much of a burden on specific departments while allowing others to seemingly "slack – more... off." Recent budget cuts in what is being termed, "The Great Recession", has placed an unfair burden on some departments to "carry the torch" and in some cases greater departmental and individual justification. The University was not doing enough to work out these issues and help improve/streamline cumbersome procedures, policies, and practices in order to ensure that specific departments that were viewed as having a greater impact and direct correlation to student retention were not being overworked thus creating low workplace morale. You were not even allowed to think about it much less speak about it. Specific departments and offices were given preferential treatment in respect to their workspace designs and working environments. – less
