Stony Brook University Graduate Assistant Job

Graduate Assistant (Former Employee) Stony Brook, NY

ProsGreat if you are studying there as well.

ConsRigid hierarchy. If you have connections with Deans, your networks will serve you better.

Advice to Senior ManagementThere needs to be a real focus on quality management. Ask the employees and customers what they need rather than just trying to make a profit. In the registration and bursar departments the employees are extremely rude to students/customers. There is a real lack of commitment and training to improve customer service. In the College of Business, some of the management are just two concerned with profits and numbers rather than a solid education. They direct their students to finance whether they are interested in it or not.
