Former Employee - Administrator in New York, NY

I worked at Cuny Research Foundation part-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

I worked for the Creative Arts Team, which is a "public school collaborative program" within the Office of Academic Affairs. There were many benefits in terms of professional development, networking within the university and beyond and opportunities for career growth. Salaries and benefits are very good.

Cons

As a not-for-profit some jobs are dependent on funding, which may not be stable.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to encourage collaborations between offices and across campuses.

  1.  

    A good place for a steady paycheck, but you'll need to deal with the rude people of New York using bad computers.

    Former Employee - Call Center Representative in New York, NY

    I worked at Cuny Research Foundation part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The work environment is great. You use a random desk every time but they are large and you get plenty of space (5 feet away from the next person). Also, all supervisors are kind and helpful.

    Cons

    Employee policies are very strict; daily issues with work computer; overly harsh employee grading system that rejects common sense

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is aware of employee frustrations from the bi-weekly team meetings, but there's no need to provide needed technological and workplace improvements to please workers that can easily be replaced. Supervisors share our frustration, but it's some of their superiors who are disconnected.
