Productive work environment with networking opportunities
Student Assistant (Former Employee) –  Orlando, FLOctober 10, 2018
My typical day at work consist of helping students and guess employers of sponsored companies. Preforming administrative duties as need, as well as helping with career fairs. Management was decent, there was areas that could be worked on. The hardest part of the job was dealing with issues from other departments in the school that did not pertain us and rude individuals that would call or come in. The most enjoyable part of working on campus were connecting with employers and learning more ways to be professional and how to prepare for your career.
Pros
Free lunch
Cons
Short breaks and no benefits (work study)

Beware of what you are promised
Staff member (Current Employee) –  Orlando, FLOctober 24, 2018
Current staff member at UCF Health. Increasingly poor management over the last 3-4 years has caused a major decrease in moral and high turnover rate. Their job postings are listed over and over again because it takes months to hire someone (HR moves slowly). The new hire is usually scared off by the low pay and high workload. Management is not truthful in the hiring process. New hired physicians are unhappy and makes for a stressful work environment. Coworkers might not come in the next day because they found a less stressful job, leaving you with the extra work.
Pros
Great healthcare benefits
Cons
Below average salary, stressful work environment

Adjuncts carry the workload
Lecturer (part-time) (Former Employee) –  Orlando, FLJune 10, 2018
Extreme emphasis on internationalization sometimes at the expense of excellence. Department heads and full-time faculty get regular raises and bonuses (while tuition costs keep going up), but adjuncts carry the workload with no chance for a raise or advancement.
Pros
If your position includes state health insurance at nominal cost
Cons

Something new happens everyday
Program Assistant (Current Employee) –  Orlando, FLAugust 16, 2018
A typical work day keeps you on your toes.. We provide customer service to all faculty and students. During the Fall and Spring semesters the office gets extremely busy.

I've learned to take advantage over every training opportunity that comes your way.

Management has been fair and always willing to work with employees.

Workplace culture is diverse and everyone has the same goal of making our department the best it can be.

Hardest part of the job would be trying to get everything on your to do list accomplished in a single day.

Most enjoyable I would say is being able to help and interact with the students.
Pros
flexibility, schedule
Cons
pay

Courtesy Appointment, Associate Professor (Current Employee) –  Orlando, FLNovember 18, 2018
This is a large university with 60,000+ students. It offers professors many opportunities for special travel opportunities, research funding and advancement.

My progressive department (Anthropology) grew significantly during my 15 years there. We separated from Sociology to become a separate department and added Master's and PhD degree programs during my tenure there.

Pros
Got to leave early.
Cons
Hours were to short and hourly pay was horrible.
