Current Employee - Adjunct Professor

I have been working at Utica College part-time for more than a year

Pros

Nice friendly people and great leadership from the President.

Cons

Gosspip, backdoor deals, impossible to get anything accomplished unless you have the support of the president's office.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Foster innovative ideas from the bottom up. There are people within the college that have great ideas but, they never see the day of light because of a status quo environment.

    I have been working at Utica College

    Pros

    Students and Staff are great. We get a generous amount of time off.

    Cons

    Constant flux. People stress over nothing, and make small things major catastrophes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your staff.

    I have been working at Utica College part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good people and students. Friendly and informal work culture. Acceptable facilities. Campus has a business casual, neighborhood-y feel to it.

    Cons

    Financially the school is on very thin ice. Lots of behind-the-scenes politics that protects low-performing faculty and administrators. Longtime employees disappear, never to return, quickly and for no apparent reason. The faculty itself is being systematically hollowed out through non-replacement of quitting/retiring full-time faculty members. These vacancies are being filled by a small army of adjuncts who are paid far less than full-time faculty. Class sizes are swelling every semester. It's becoming a glorified community college. The future is bleak.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of doubling down on online education, where UC will struggle to compete with more well-known schools, perhaps we could double down on regional recruitment for on-ground students?
