    GA at FIU

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsNice relaxed environment, supportive colleagues. GA position came with a tuition waiver so this helped tremendously in making college affordable. Plus, gained experience in my chosen field.

    ConsNothing really remarkable springs to mind. Perhaps student offices could be upgraded with faster computer, etc. and generally more modern office equipment.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
