OFFICE ASSISTANT (Former Employee) –  Miami, FLJuly 18, 2018
Overall a good place for benefits provided by the State of Florida. Change in management causes a lot of confusion, being that there is an option to replace long-time staff at will, not due to you not knowing and doing your job thoroughly.
Pros
401k, Health Benefits
Cons
At- will clause in USPS contracts.

Good Learning experience. The coworkers are very nice. Facilities can be improved. It feel like a dull place, can change the buildings and atmosphere bright and welcoming.

IT technical support Operator (Current Employee) –  Miami, FLJuly 9, 2018
The offices at Florida International University are small yet comfortable. The co-workers in the office are kind and inviting. The pay is reasonable and about 20 hours a week are given no more than 30 hours though.

It is great to volunteer in your field of study as a college student. The additional experience will increase your chances of landing a decent job upon graduation.

Data entry and database management (Former Employee) –  Miami, FLJuly 2, 2018
A typical work day is nine to 5 pm with a one hour lunch. Where you work, which department, management, and your specific role, all affect your work experience. I for one enjoy the FIU culture and the rest is what you make it.

Student Assistant (Current Employee) –  Miami, FLJune 19, 2018
The days started with data analysis and data management of the Professor's project. I learned the management skills. I had the knowledge of data management and data analysis from the coursework I had taken But lacked management skills. The workplace culture is pretty good. The hardest part of the job was initial days of data analysis with 200k data entries. But I accustomed to the skills. The most enjoyable part is the job-friendly environment.

Graduate Teaching Assistant (Former Employee) –  Miami, FLJune 14, 2018
FIU is a satisfactory place to work. The faculty and staff I've come to know are committed to higher education and conducting quality research. Admission standards should be tightened; I instructed too many students who are not able to formulate a coherent sentence, much less a coherent, well organized paragraph or paper. Admitting these students is a disservice to the students themselves and the professors tasked with evaluating their elementary level work within a higher education framework.

Fun people, not much opportunity
Cashier, Aramark Corporation, Pollo Tropical (Former Employee) –  Miami, FLJune 14, 2018
Aramark is a separate corporation from FIU and they themselves treat workers well and are very understanding. FIU itself will toss you under the bus with no consideration and without warning. Unless you are a business, engineer, or science related major, you may as well be an ant they can step on at any minute. Aramark at least treats everyone equal and is very positive towards you in hoping your succeed in whatever you plan on doing.
Pros
Free meals, flexible position, rewards for positive reviews
Cons
Nothing else for benefits and no real growth

University Graduate Assistant/Professor (Former Employee) –  Miami, FLJune 12, 2018
It was very stressful at times, combined with attending classes at the same place. It probably would have been a better experience, as a full time position without other duties involved.
Pros
Stressful

Research Assistant (Former Employee) –  Miami, FLJune 9, 2018
Under the supervision of Dr. Anthony Mcgoron, Brandon Dinner conducted research to optimize a waterin-
oil protocol to create chitosan-PVA cross-linked microspheres.
• The microspheres serve as "vehicles," delivering chemotherapeutic drugs and imaging agents to cancer
sites.

Event Manager (Current Employee) –  Miami, FLJune 7, 2018
There needs to be an adjustment in management due to lack of organization and the job being treated like a government position. People are working to just collect a paycheck instead of working to improve the work place. The negativity outweighs the positive reinforcement. I don't know if this is due to pressure from the higher ups or just something normal. There is room ultimately for improvement.

OFFICE SPECIALIST (Current Employee) –  Miami, FLJune 5, 2018
This company like any other has its good and bad, but for the most part it's a great place to work. I have been here for over 5 years and would only leave if I was to work in a similar environment.

interesting experience for a short term contract / assignment
contractor (Former Employee) –  Miami, FLMay 30, 2018
Good environment. Hardest part of the job was to get a hold of the Vice Provost who contracted the work, almost impossible to get a hold of her. This limited the opportunities to develop further work with the institution.
Pros
knowledgeable staff for the most part
Cons
lack of humility
