    Fun learning experience and a solid on campus job

    Resident Consultant (Former Employee) Binghamton, NY

    ProsThe work is interesting and easy for anyone to learn how to do. The work is technical and you get to learn technical skills while getting paid. You also get to set your own hours, which helps maintain schoolwork while holding the job. You also get to meet many new people as well.

    ConsThe work is inconsistent, and since the job is by the hour, the pay is inconsistent. Really is not a job that someone should try to live off of, but I feel that is obvious.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you are doing, it works well and is a great job.

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

    Poor Orientation and Inclusion of Adjuncts

    Adjunct Professor (Former Employee)

    ProsThis university is very highly rated in terms of bang for your buck. The students were generally hard-working and the chair of my department was reasonably supportive.

    ConsWhen I began as an adjunct, there was no orientation to the workings of the university or department. Adjuncts were not included in departmental meetings, so I was nearly as unfamiliar with my colleagues after working there for a year as I was when I started.

    Advice to Senior ManagementOrient new employees. Include part-time, adjunct and postdoctoral employees in departmental and division meetings where issues that concern them might be raised.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay more attention to the needs of your employees and get them what they need. Support your employees and protect them as you do the students.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    The University Call Center is awesome!

    ConsThe pay starts at minimum wage, you have to get coverage for your shifts, and not everyone comes in when they're supposed to
