Pros: after reaching certain amount of years as an employee, you or your kids get to go to school for free.
Cons: no room to advance.
My current job is a place that I enjoy working at because all my co-workers are respectful to each other and also look out for each other. The rules and regulations are well set out to all employees which makes it really comfortable to perform our daily duties. My number one issue with my current Employer is the fact that, there isn't a chance for career – more... advancement, promotion nor to excel. It feels like you are stuck in one place. Besides that, I think my current employer can be a nice place to work. – less

Computer Operator (Former Employee), Miami, FL – July 14, 2014
It was very interesting to work for University of Miami I've learned a lot working with my co-workers my supervisors. We always worked as a team. I had the chance of taking my MCSE course and getting certified.
The University of Miami is an excellent place to work. It embraces cultural diversity and is very community orientated. My fellow coworkers take pride in their work and understands how their responsibilities fit into the goals of the University and are willing to put in extra effort to help the University succeed. The top management supports diversity – more... and promotes cultural activities throughout the year. The University has an excellent benefit package and offers tuition assistance for children of employees.
However, growth upward is very slow. Although I am satisfied with the working conditions, the chance of a promotion or any upward growth in the Unit is slow, if not non-existent. Many of my coworkers left because the rate of inflation has grown more than our salaries, so we have no choice but to look elsewhere for opportunities where growth is possible.
The most enjoyable part of the job is the calm and peace of mind working with my fellow workers and the hardest part is the fact that our salary will not increase to catch up with inflation. – less

Sixty per cent of my calendar has standing appointments. I prepare for meetings with Vice Chair Administrators and employees. I meet with employees daily – more... and VCAs bi-weekly. The hardest part of my job is meeting with offsite employees. Due to the distant and my availability, rescheduling is not always possible in the same week. In my role the leadership styles are primarily as Consultant and Counselor. The most enjoyable part of my job is training. In the current HR Shared-service model, I do not get the opportunity to train or facilitate meetings as much as I would like. , – less
