I have been working at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute full-time for more than 5 years

ProsBenefits are okay. Okay time off. The nice people are really nice.

ConsThe layoffs of 2008-some were unsubstantiated. Puzzling way of doing some things.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Great place to get an education; bad place to work

Administrative Specialist (Former Employee)
Troy, NY

I worked at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute


Pros: Best reason to work at Rensselaer is the retirement benefit. … Cons: Rensselaer treats staff as second-class citizens. Of course students are deemed as important, as it should be at a university. Faculty are routinely heralded… Advice to Senior Management: When the job market begins to turn, Rensselaer will find many staff members leaving because they will be able to find other jobs - better… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
