  1. The admin "side of the house" - which is definitely looked at as second class w/ nothing but overhead to contribute

    I worked at Syracuse University full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great retirement contributions, fairly collaborative environment, an ability (although sometimes difficult, to say the least) to contributing excellent service!

    Cons

    Admin staff is seen by campus community & academic C-suite as the lowest of the low, not seen as necessary to achieve the university's mission, seen as obstructions to "get around"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize & publicly support the dedicated (not to mention absolutely necessary) staff performing administrative functions, look to the academics & academic support as well as the numerous ( mainly academic) VP positions increasingly created

    I worked at Syracuse University part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Easy atmosphere to be in if you steer clear of department drama and campus politics. Hard to disappoint your boss, especially when tasks at this campus are typically regular and mundane.

    Cons

    Can't move up. There is a lot of tension between coworkers at times of change. Not much room to grow and learn new things. People don't like change there, even if it is for the better.
