    I worked at College of Saint Rose

    Pros

    Great staff to work with and ok benefits. Campus is quiet and not overcrowded. Students are well behaved and faculty are supportive.

    Cons

    The management is horrible. Very hard to get time off during school year. Job priorities change every few minutes. To many meetings on everything and then nothing gets done anyways. Facilities dept is a train wreck with a airplane crashing into it followed by a Multiple car pile up. A lot of armchair quarterbacks who will never have your back. Blame game and finger pointing is the normal operating procedure. After a month working in this place you will wonder why you ever took the job. Not a good place to work if you value hard work and have a skill set as these will not get you anywhere here. Pay is horrible the worst I ever had by far. Lots of people trying to stab each other in the back. The worst place I ever worked. Look at other places to work or stay unemployed. No wonder place is going down the tube and enrollment is down.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up and take notice to what's happening on campus. Poor managers lead to poor worker performance and bad attitudes. Notice how all good employees end up leaving and moving on quickly. Conditions on campus are a direct result of absentee managers.

    I have been working at College of Saint Rose part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    great place to work. one of the few place where you can see faculty, staff and administrators mingle with each other. relaxed environment, most of the students won't mind chatting with you

    Cons

    while most students can be great people to talk to some students at times will try to put you in a position where to you can lose your job (whether purposely or not) don't fall for it. benifits could be a little better.

    I worked at College of Saint Rose as an intern (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great co-workers, flexible schedule, amazing boss. I was able to hone my own rhetorical and grammatical skills while helping others with their writing.

    Cons

    The graduate assistantship is limited to full-time graduate students and there was a maximum of 150 works hours per semester. Another con is that you don't get paid until the very end of the semester (in one lump sum).

    * Strong student organization presence, active campus/students

    Cons

    * Pay/benefits for adjuncts could be better
    * Could involve adjuncts in committees/incorporate into planning a bit more
