Instructor for Public Speaking made Enjoyable by Supervisor
Graduate Instructor, Public Speaking (Former Employee), Tallahassee, FLJune 16, 2014
As a graduate teaching assistant, my role was to educate labs of undergraduate students and conduct activities related to public speaking, such as mock interviews, writing workshops, and formal speeches. I learned how to teach effectively, how to manage classrooms of adult learners, and how to navigate the university systems like the registrar's office, – more... advising centers, and different colleges. My co-workers were other graduate students and our supervisor was a full professor with the College of Communication & Information. We were a motivated team with a fantastic boss. I loved going to the labs and leading class even though it was not always easy to capture the attention of 18-25 year old students. – less

Great environment for students, staff and faculty. Opportunistic and unethical institutionalized parking rules.
Instructor / Graduate Assistant (Current Employee), Tallahassee, FLJune 2, 2014
Pros: becoming a doctor, becoming an expert in a field.
Cons: no social life, more than 10 hours of reading, research, etc. every single day for years.
A typical day at work for a full-time PhD. student means staying in a university-based carrel between 8 and 16 hours combining work as an employee and work as a student with a program of study. Through a very rigorous program, a PhD. student acquires an impressively vast body of knowledge in the field of Educational Leadership and Administration. As – more... an FSU doctoral student, one is trained to work collaboratively at all times, and one is given the opportunity to learn from leading figures of the field in question. Management-wise, one is put in charge of an entire class, and one must diligently apply as much knowledge as possible to adhere to the University's and department's standards. In short, one is trained to be an administrator, a professor, a leader.

There are several factors that make a PhD in Educational Leadership a very demanding endeavor. One of the hardest factors to consider is related to the extensive research one has to conduct seven days a week all year long for as long as the degree lasts. Sometimes, I had to read, analyze, and reach conclusions for 34 hours in a row without going home or taking a shower. Deadlines are crucial, and many papers have to be written. Papers have to comply with very strict research guidelines and academic writing style.

Important: A "C" grade will automatically take you out of the program you are in.

The most enjoyable part of the job is to know how many undergraduate and graduate students become more knowledgeable about education because of the hard work put it by all the members of the department one is part of. Also, interestingly, when one makes it to graduation ceremony, as a PhD. you do not experience feelings of happiness. You mostly experience is huge feeling of relief!!! – less

Writer, Instructor, Organizer (Current Employee), Tallahassee, FLApril 9, 2014
Pros: freedom to design personal pedagogical approaches, and course content.
Cons: health insurance
Florida State University provides graduate students/instructors with valuable experience working with students and organizations on a variety of levels, and within multiple genres. Time spent with students is the most enjoyable part of the job. The program also provides ample time for instructors to produce/publish their own work. Mentorship is practiced – more... and encouraged, and the support system extends through the entire community of writers, professors, and administrators. – less

The most efficient university
Director of Academic and Research Technologies (Current Employee), Tallahassee, FLJanuary 28, 2014
Cons: state of florida.
Our president likes the fact that we are the most efficient university. According to whom, I'm not sure. But from the perspective of the IT staff, this efficiency is killing us. We keep losing IT staff without replacing them forcing us to work 60 to 80 hours a week for pay well below industry standards. So why do we continue to work at FSU... the short – more... answer is we're all looking for other opportunities, thus the constant loss of our IT staff. – less
