    Pros

    Great, nurturing atmosphere.
    Benefits are amazing.
    North campus is very quiet and relaxing

    Cons

    Management looks out for themselves. Nepotism is rampant.
    Highest levels are management were probably used car salesmen before as the school has become very image conscious.
    Very little room to advance. Instead of promoting experienced, veteran employees - they'll hire someone from the outside into a position above you.
    The President, provost, and higher-ups are all aware of this - but have their own agendas.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring your friends and acting impulsively.
    Stop promoting/encouraging employees that do not contribute to the organization.
    Give incentive to your hard working employees instead of treating them unfairly.

    Pros

    Gives you a lot of opportunity for research and teaching experience along with working with many premier researchers and teachers in the field.

    Cons

    Florida International University is EXTREMELY unorganized! There is virtually no accountability among the administration and the clerical errors with no easy solutions are never ending.

    Advice to Management

    Become better organized and hold yourselves accountable when you make mistakes. In a large institution, some things are bound to fall through the cracks, but FIU takes things to a whole new level.
