Pros: tuition waiver (if you have anyone to take advantage of it)
Cons: poverty level pay, no job advancement, poor management, nepotism, hr, lack of pay raises
This is not the same Miami of the past. After budget cutbacks, there is no such thing as job security. The bean counters manage the budget like a for-profit business. In the private sector, that's common sense. However, this is still a state funded institution as much as they try to manage like a private school. One person is now expected to do the job of 4. Corners are being cut and it shows.There are no incentives to do exceptional work because there are no rewards, just an expectation to do more work. The "new" Miami does not plan for you to stay there for 30 years, nor does it want you to for that matter.
Wages are poverty level. A person cannot survive on the entry level wage with most positions. Benefits are being taken away little by little. Health insurance was a benefit that used to be 100% on Miami. Newer employees who haven't been grandfathered in pay for insurance now. As far as advancement, there is no such thing. Nepotism runs rampant. Miami is too top heavy with managers and more managers.
This is not the place to go if you are looking for hourly pay. As far as salaried position, that's a different story.
