Ok to work for if you are a "yes sir" kind of person

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Syracuse, NY

ProsBenefits package, pay rate was ok considering the other benefits you get including free education. A lot of different departments you can work under.

ConsCan be very cut throat. Management doesn't care about their employees advancing and bettering themselves, they only care about themselves. It can be very clicky and University contributions to benefits are on the decline.

Advice to Senior ManagementEmpower your employees, take care of them and they will take care of you.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
