    Pros

    CUNY gives you the opportunity to grow as a professional allowing you to put to the test your full potential and showing what you are really capable of. I had the amazing opportunity of working as College Assistant and even though i worked in a very quiet space, the tasks assigned to me were very diverse and gave me the chance to apply some of my Computer programming knowledge, which i was not expected.

    Cons

    It was a seasonal position, it is very difficult to find a steady job within CUNY if you are not capable of showing records of previous experience.

    Advice to Management

    Give more opportunity to those who do not have enough experience.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits that includes dental, health, prescription drugs, free tuition at the undergraduate level and up to 6 credits per semester at the graduate level

    Cons

    Lower salary compared to the standard market value. Almost impossible to get promoted unless you do something extraordinary. Lack of collaboration between the team members.

    Advice to Management

    Promote the hard working employees. Let them collaborate. Hire more people, there's much to do to the point we cannot anticipate when equipment s might fail. Also fixe cunyfirst.
