HR is not your friend
Instructor (Current Employee) –  Miami, FLOctober 20, 2017
Colleagues had legitimate complaints about workplace bullying and discrimination but HR did not investigate or punish the bullies. Retaliation was an outcome for said colleagues. Other colleagues who have left have been blackballed from applying to other local academic institutions due to gossip and misinformation.

FIU is a good place to work for. When I was working there the salary for my position was not that good. They had good benefits and the opportunity to attend school which was excellent. My Bachelor degree was mostly paid by FIU.
