    Current Employee - Coordinator in Orlando, FL (US)

    I have been working at University of Central Florida full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Earn annual and sick leave

    Cons

    No pay raises in 7 years, as an alumna and an employee no rewards for loyalty. No auto or cola pay increases since subject to legislature budget. Benefits cut last several years, try to get a corporate job first. State employees are underpaid and over worked, well unless you are a manager.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote from within before looking at outside hires. Appreciate your employees.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Orlando, FL (US)
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Orlando, FL (US)

    I worked at University of Central Florida full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The opportunity to work at a large university that is growing; the opportunity to work with some good folks; opportunities to be involved in a lot of things if able or permitted.

    Cons

    Favoritism, unprofessional (discussing employee matters with others who are not the employee or a supervisor, and unethical modeling of behavior by leadership (including gossip about personal lives, health, and wellness of employees). Good old boy/girl network which prohibits advancement opportunities. Punished for speaking up for oneself.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Training in professional ethics required for all staff, including leadership.

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO
