Contact Lens Coordinator (Current Employee), Davie, FloridaAugust 25, 2015
Nova is a wonderful place to work. The job/life balance is almost unbeatable. My position is fast-paced and can be overwhelming to those who prefer a slower job pace. My co-workers have become family, and the management is awesome.

Work Overload
Financial Aid (Current Employee), Fort Lauderdale, FLJune 26, 2015
Pros: Tuition waiver, paid time-off, and healthcare benefits
Cons: Top heavy management, heavy workload, and stressful environment
A typical day is busy filled with numerous overwhelming tasks. Not only are you trying to keep up with your work, but you also doing mandatory departmental assignments AND of course still keep up with your assigned duties. I learned that there hasn't been a raise for three years in my department and it probably won't happy this year. I also learned that Non-exempt workers (salary based) are not allowed to do overtime; therefore, you will not be paid after 5:00pm nor for weekend shifts. Based on my observation, policies and procedures seem to apply to some people and not others. Management is top heavy, filled with a lot of favoritism, and enforce rules on certain employees. The hardest part of my job is everyday. The most enjoyable part of my job is helping students.

No, I am not a disgruntle worker, but I feel NSU takes advantage of their employees like every other corporation-want you to work hard, above and beyond, but fails to ensure certain employees are fairly compensated and receive increases. Meanwhile, NSU bid wigs are building multi-million dollar facilities while we (current underpaid employees) are being told about budget cuts.

P.S. Everyone is entitled to their opinions based on their experience. My perception is my reality. You may not feel the same way, but we can agree to disagree.

PROFESIONALISM
Enrollment Coordinator (Former Employee), JACKSONVILLE, FLJune 19, 2015
Pros: I WAS ABLE TO GROW PROFFECIONALLY AND IMPROVE KNOWLEDGE
AT NSU WORK WAS ALWAYS BUSY. EITHER I WAS ANSWERING CALLS OR UPDATING STUDENT INFORMATION OR INFORMING STUDENTS OF UPCOMING EVENTS THROUGH NEWSLETTERS AND EVEN BOOKING ROOMS FOR CLASSES AND OTHER EVENTS.
THIS WAS MY FIRST REAL JOB IN THE PROFESSIONAL ENVIRONMENT. I LEARN TO BE PUNCTUAL, PROFESSIONAL, DILIGENT, BE ABLE TO LEARN FROM OTHERS, LEARN HOW TO COMMUNICATE WITH OTHERS, PROVIDE EXCELLENT SERVICE TO STAFF, STUDENTS AND PROSPECTS.
SCHEDULING WAS THE HARDEST PART OF MY JOB SINCE THERE ARE ALWAYS CHANGES AND ALWAYS TRYING TO ACCOMMODATE THE PERSON OR GROUP TO THE BEST ROOMS WE COULD PROVIDE.

Patient Care Supervisor (Former Employee), Fort Lauderdale, FLJune 19, 2015
Very nice place to work if you were as student. The pay was below average and because of that the environment was a bit relaxed. The students were great in addition to the Deans who were mostly retired.

Assistant to Director of Finance & Administration (Current Employee), Davie, FLJune 17, 2015
Pros: Tuition Waivers
At my current position I work in a departments and for a boss who is more interested in having happy employees. I am able to take ownership of my position and implement changes. This was not the case at my previous position at NSU. I think it depends on the department you work in.
