    Current Employee - Assistant Professor, Management in Alfred, NY

    I have been working at Alfred State College full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    small class sizes, great students, diversity in student body

    Cons

    cronyism, a small number of tenured professors 'control' things at this small, remote campus in western New York. The campus is struggling to transition from a two-year to a four-year school.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You will continue to lose new PhDs until administrations changes the manner in which faculty are addressed.

    I worked at Alfred State College part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    As a student working in the IT department, the hours were very flexible. It's extremely relevant to those in a technical major, but also helpful to those without. You'll get a lot of hands on experience for hardware and get your first look at how a company would handle a ticketing system. A great place to start out. Opportunity for summer jobs as well.

    Cons

    Infrastructure could be handled a little better, but it's nothing big.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep being friendly and ask the software majors to develop systems for you!
