    Third tier reality

    Assistant Professor (Former Employee) Garden City, NY

    ProsThis place is suitable for teachers.

    ConsInfrastructure does not support progress in research. There are university policies that make certain research - that normally could be done in the undergraduate institution - impossible.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on achieving profit is not a long-term strategy. Higher SAT score limit for candidates during admission process and more balance between politics and integrity would be desirable.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
