Admissions Specialist (Former Employee) –  Fort Lauderdale, FLSeptember 17, 2017
You are treated like a robot; eliciting emotions is frowned upon. They have a high turnover rate. There is minimal training for extensive job duties. You basically learn as you go. The employee evaluations are unfairly rated. Even if you do not agree, you are forced to sign.

Assistant Director of undergraduate Admissions (Former Employee) –  Davie, FLAugust 26, 2017
I believe this employer has potential to be outstanding, but I think managers should make some what of an effort to get to know their employers rather than just using a blanketed approach to all situations. (Offer more support to employers who are full time students)

Fun Working Experience
LAB ASSISTANT (Former Employee) –  Fort Lauderdale, FLAugust 21, 2017
A typical day would be setting up and taking down experiments. The great thing about working as a lab assistant was that it allowed me to become more adjusted to lab techniques, such as pipetting. Moreover, since it was in a school environment, I was already familiar with the professors and students, it was very comfortable and enjoyable.
Pros
Becoming more familiar with lab techniques

Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Davie, FLAugust 20, 2017
I worked in the University's Community Relations and Donor department. It was a great department to work in because I worked with people that wanted to make a difference for the students. They wanted the University to be seen as a viable force in the community and provide scholarship opportunities for all students. It was very rewarding.

High cost university is not making it in a changing educational environment
Project Manager (Former Employee) –  Davie, FLAugust 15, 2017
University is run like a business with more emphasis put on profit than education. This trickles down to how management treats their employees. Each department and college are a different experience when working with or for them. Working at NSU was like watching my career go down with a slow sinking ship.
Pros
Time off
Cons
Low pay

Fun and Family type environment
Director of Hospitality and Building Operations (Former Employee) –  North Miami Beach, FLAugust 10, 2017
After 16 years of working on that particular university, I created something that it was not there before. They created a position for me, I then created the department from scratch, unfortunately due to a downsizing transition the department was eliminated after 16 years of functioning successfully.
Everyday was a different event, special meeting, 6 people, or maybe 350 for which everything was already planned, and just needed to be executed. Worked with different departments together to make achieve all goals and objectives. For me it was the passion for the job, for others was the excitement, fun and free food. ultimately, I could call it a family at work.
Pros
Resources, gym, showers for after excercising during lunch breaks and free coffe.
Cons
Some of the staff might have taken advantage of the freedom and perks.

Not mid-level friendly
Counselor (Current Employee) –  Davie, FLAugust 2, 2017
NSU is great for entry level jobs and executive level jobs, not for mid-level. Advancement is mostly based on favoritism and/or nepotism.
Great benefits and compensation are offered.
Pros
Benefits, retirement plan, and time off.
Cons
Low paying salaries and lack of opportunities for advancement and professional growth.
