    An overall positive experience and valuable learning opportunity.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Miami, FL (US)

    ProsI truly enjoyed working at Florida International University (FIU) South Campus. Prior to working at FIU, I was employed by a small college with very limited resources. While at FIU, I worked in a well-equipped and stocked laboratory and wanted for nothing in terms of supplies. I was able to attend classes around my work schedule, and received invaluable training opportunities that still serve me well, 10 years after my employment there. I would encourage qualified job seekers in the South Florida area to apply to FIU, as there is opportunity for growth and development.

    ConsI have no complaints about FIU per se, as my experience was quite positive. For job seekers outside of the South Florida market, please note: the cost of living in Miami is quite high. Several of my colleagues lived outside of Miami-Dade county and commuted to work daily. The drive was simply too far for me, so I searched and found an affordable apartment in a nearby, older neighborhood.
