Micromanagement and a lack of team playing environment
Administrative Assist/Faculty & Academic Affairs (Former Employee), Orlando, FLMay 31, 2015
Management's expectation of work productivity from employees can be unrealistic. I learned that their is no room for new ideas that may possibly increase productivity and efficiency. In many cases, co-workers who were a big part of the department's productivity would be uncooperative which, would become a roadblock in reaching the final goal of a project or task.

Physics department is excellent
Research Associate (Former Employee), OrlandoMay 19, 2015
Pros: good work environment
Cons: major funding cuts
I have been teaching and research assistant at physics department at UCF, and it is an awesome place to work! I joined as teaching assistant and eventually in one year I found the advisor. Since then my experience has been great. Although, funding cut is a big issue when it comes to Phd.

Good People Doing a Difficult Job
Graduate Teaching Assistant (Current Employee), Orlando, FLApril 13, 2015
Due to the size of UCF (60000+ students), measures must be taken to effectively administer the student body. The university, and the Department of Mathematical Sciences in particular, are quite adept in meeting this formidable challenge. However, some of the more personal aspects of education and advisement common to smaller schools are waylaid. The people are wonderful and caring, but are often overshadowed by the machinery needed to operate a school of this size.
This being said, lemons are being turned to lemonade. The Math Department uses its size to employ new teaching techniques and models. Beginning undergraduate math is taught in a modified emporium model. A new program, adjustments are made as needs are identified. The model is of the machine, but the fine-tuning is directed by the good people of the department. Computer based math may indeed be the paradigm of the future, and UCF is blazing the trail.

Positive Work Culture, Limited Advancement Opportunities
Senior Property Manager (Current Employee), Orlando, FLMarch 3, 2015
Pros: positive and relaxed work culture
Cons: limited compensation and advancement opportunities
I have worked for UCF for almost 3 years and have enjoyed a generally positive work environment. Work culture is professional but relaxed. Salary compensation is much lower than what one would encounter in the private sector, however, the peripheral benefits (sick leave, annual leave, insurance, discounts) help to offset this factor. For ambitious employees, there are many training opportunities available, however, advanced opportunities are very limited. Job satisfaction can range from very low to very high depending on the department/college that one works for.

Research Assistant
Research Assistant (Former Employee), Orlando, FloridaFebruary 15, 2015
Pros: flexibility
Cons: workload
As a Research assistant I was in charge of the literature analysis for the human factors psychology department. This included reading journals and articles that were published and related to our research and trying to find ways in which this would support or reject our hypothesis.
The co workers were great because they all have the same interests as you. It was great to talk to them during down time so that they could help you with homework or other issues you were having.
The management was great because they knew we were all students so they worked with out schedules and was very understanding during test weeks.
The hardest part of the job was having to balance the work load between this job and my other classes, however it also taught me great time management skills.

Graduate Writing Consultant (Former Employee), Orlando, FLFebruary 12, 2015
This position helped me make a decision to instead work in the private sector for the time being. I worked in the writing center for 20 hours, did special projects, attended seminars, and was required to read and write too much daily.
