Suggestions for improvement

  • There should be more career openings, giving professors a greater chance for work.

What I like about the company

We have often team meetings to discuss about our teaching skills here! We communicate with each other very frequently, which is positive since you need good sportsmanship in a work place.

What I dislike about the company

They should be more diverse. Not critizing any one based off of their race or color.

Suggestions for improvement

  • More recognition for the staff, as well as more benefits such as free lunches from time to time, free services in the community (restaurants, oil changes, etc.). I feel that recognition and small tokens of appreciation are well received by employees and would make a huge impact on workplace attitude and morale.

What I like about the company

The people with whom i work are wonderful. Many are in the same situation as me--no raise in 6 years, but despite that, many of my co-workers are very helpful and nice. I consider some of them to be my close friends as well as colleagues.

What I dislike about the company

There is definitely a hierarchy at my workplace, with job classifications that determine one's rank and pay scale. There is an inequality that abounds. I believe there should be more perks and benefits for the lower ranking employees to compensate for the lack of pay.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Employees such as myself are often 'pigeon-holed' into positions and our compensation does not adequately reflect our scope of duties. We need fair wages and cost of living increases. Allow employees to work independently and stop micro-managing. We're capable of the duties. Management should also attempt to get employees more money or at least bonuses each year, if deserved.

What I like about the company

The benefits--there is a pension program and I am fully invested into the program, which will help with retirement.

What I like about the company

It's a great opportunity if you have the drive. Such a blossoming school and so much potential.

What I dislike about the company

There are so many rules that stifle growth and so many people with tenor that WILL NOT be questioned when it comes to their wrongdoings. BUT the approval is needed.

Support from management

Leadership does not support all employees equally or fairly. If you have an issue or problem, don't expect support to be given. Issues are often ignored until they reach a crisis level.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Address the problems with leadership in the division and department so that UNF doesn't lose more great employees. When your great workers are resigning with and without another position lined up, then you should know there is a problem that must be corrected.

What I like about the company

I loved the diversity and constant educational opportunities. There are also some great people who work there.

What I dislike about the company

In the division (particularly the department ) where I worked, it was very stressful and chaotic. Some people were treated with respect while others were not. It didn't depend upon how hard you worked or how well you knew and did your job either.

Also when others treated their peers and subordinates with hostility, the behavior was tolerated and even excused.
