    Former Employee - University Administrator in Brookville, Nassau, NY

    I worked at Long Island University full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    tuition remission. beautiful campus (Brookville)

    Cons

    Lousy salaries, employees treated with disrespect and contempt, no opportunities for advancement, top heavy with overpaid management and lazy professors with tenure who let others, including adjuncts do the work for much lower pay. Morale is very low there. No raises for years, hiring freezes and layoffs - plus constant threats of layoffs, also for *years*. The worst place I have ever worked. In 2011 they spent $9 million (yes, NINE million) on a "rebranding" - from "Long Island University" to "LIU Post", "LIU Brooklyn", etc., no lie! - and laid off staff!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of those who do nothing but draw a salary. Reward hardworking employees with pay and advancement. Respect your employees. Students are charged more and more for tuition each year - I don't blame them for choosing other schools. LIU is in a lot of trouble financially and that is not likely to change any time soon. I understand there is a new president whose only money-saving idea is layoffs - good luck with that.

    I worked at Long Island University part-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Offers the benefits that you could expect at a large college campus. Gym, Library and theater are assets. Scenic campus with close proximity to NYC.

    Cons

    Part time employees are treated unfairly by the administration. No room for growth, the university seems less concerned with providing a quality education then it was in years past. Misappropriation of funds seems evident in some departments. Concern over expanding class size is resulting in combined classes which do not take into account the students needs, combining 100 and 200 level classes to ensure a higher student to teacher ratio is not a good way to educate students.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start looking more closely at hiring practices within departments. Avoid hiring easily manipulated graduate students. Be more concerned with quality education and long term development instead of increasing student to teacher ratios and cutting budgets that are already underfunded. Focus on standards and building a quality program instead of investing in new advertising campaigns and rebranding trends. Treat adjunct and part time faculty with respect and realize they are more often the most dedicated employees working for the university.
