"I have worked at the University of Florida first as a PhD, graduate assistant and currently as a postdoctoral research scientist. The graduate students at UF benefit from a strong Graduate Student Union and receive full health care benefits as well as a good salary for the Gainesville area. I have not worked at the University as a research scientist long enough to fairly review the working conditions for this position. So far so good."
"I have studied/worked at this university for the past 1 and a half years."
"I'm really grateful that the University of Florida and my professor Dr. Ashok Kumar could give me this chance to work as a OPS TA. It's not about the salary, more importantly I got the experience to learn engineering drawing in a different way and the chance to help those undergraduate students with their study."
"The university of Florida is a great place to study and learn new skills. Mechanical Engineering department has very knowledgable faculty members in al disciplines. University has a wide range of equipments that facilitates research. Best of all is the great weather of Florida, always nice. You get to enjoy the beautiful nature all year long!"
"A nice university to work in. The people are friendly and it is easy for me to establish cross department cooperation with different labs."
"A very nice place to work."
"A nice place to work. pleasant weather and friendly people."
"I started to work on a project for "Nanoscience Institute for Medical & Engineering Technology" of University of Florida in August 2014. This project involves • Analysis of the different techniques of semiconductor device fabrication. • Selection of one various techniques in each step of the process based on the design specifications. • Development of a semiconductor wafer by using the techniques of thermal oxidation, etching, photolithography, doping, dielectric deposition and performing quality tests by electrical testing."
"It's a very good place to work and I have had a great experience working at UF."
"Best benefits that i have ever received but also the lowest paying in the field ."
"I have worked for UF in their Academic Technology Department for over 5 years. I can tell you that this University does not value its employees. It does not follow through on things promised. It pays employees poorly and then overworks them. If you get unlucky and have a boss who doesn't care to stick his neck out for you, you will not move up at all. To have any increase in pay or improvement in title you have to completely leave your job and department and move around UF no matter how good you are at your job or how much you actually deserve it. There is no employee engagement. The Health benefits are good, but if you have a health problem and need to take FMLA for any reason, they treat you poorly. I have personally had 4 boss's in my 5 years here. 1 was fired, 1 was lazy, 1 stole my work and continuously lied to me, and now the latest just doesn't care. A coworker just left my team and had an exit interview with the head of UFIT and told him all of this and his response was we know and we are working on a 10 year plan to fix some of these things...sure"
"UF does not care about their employees. Across UF pay is poor and people are overworked. My department doesn't seem to care how hard you work, your dedication, or how much time and energy you give to your job. They also do not follow through with things they promise to you."
