    I have been working at Long Island University part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I enjoy working with both undergraduate and graduate students. My colleagues are a pleasure to work with and I feel teaching at the University is rewarding.

    Cons

    I would like to have more classes to teach, however, the student enrollment is low and as a result I don't have the work load that I would like to have.

    Advice to Management

    I know that the University and the Dean of Academic Affairs has given me what they could and not to say I am not appreciative, but I need to teach additional classes that no longer exist.

    Pros

    Most departments have good and well-meaning people, but without any power to do anything.

    Cons

    The overall mentality of not caring trickles down from a lousy upper management who are too busy lining their own pockets to care about the students or other people who are the ones driving the whole place. Hard to get paid enough and on time.

    Advice to Management

    Start caring about somebody but yourselves and each other.

    Pros

    colleagues, students, location and connections. The people that I work with is the best part. I am able to have fun and enjoy my work with them.

    Cons

    too many changes in a short period of time, also the university could do more to support the students that are here.

    Advice to Management

    Support your employees and students. This is the core of the university and they must be appreciated.

    Pros

    The people that work there are fantastic and make the place what it is.

    Cons

    Unfortunately the administration is driving all the good people out and the only ones left is the dead wood. If you want to work at a place that still uses carbon paper and makes you fill out a time sheet than LIU is the place for you. I feel sorry for the students that go there because it is a dying leaf on a beautiful tree.

    Advice to Management

    None, they don't listen and have all the answers.
