Wonderful place for a PhD program. You have chance to work with real scientist, and interact with young and energetic undergraduate students through the teaching duties. And, the gator games are wonderful.

Professional and productive place to work
Clinical Pharmacist (Current Employee) –  Orlando, FLJanuary 16, 2018
A typical day of work is spent at a desk on the phone talking to Senior Citizens using the pharmacist clinical knowledge to talk about people's medication therapy and medical problems. It is a learning environment where you are kept up to date on the newest medication advances. The culture is relaxed, yet professional. You do have to be on your toes to watch for things that are not going well with a patient's medication therapy and you do have days when you have a lot of cases to complete. The hardest part of the job is you sit most of the day, so there is not much exercise. There are no paid holidays and no paid vacation and your work depends on the amount of cases the insurance companies send to you. The best part of the job is knowing you are helping the elderly population. You are working with coworkers that are highly intelligent and helpful.
Pros
You make your own schedule
Cons
Job security depends on Insurance Contracts

Working as a student, remaining in an academic environment can be comforting. Most jobs at the university can fluctuate widely depending on the department you work in or what professor you may be working with.
