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.
