    I have been working at Monroe College part-time

    Pros

    The staff and Faculty are very helpful. No pressure on choosing what time you want to start work at. However, if you decide to start at 9am, then please be there.

    Cons

    There aren't really any cons. atleast not from my point of view.

    Advice to Management

    Some more incentives to students and mentors.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Monroe College (More than a year)

    Pros

    Early end on Fridays and summer hours. Inclusion with banquets and some other student events.

    Cons

    The management is too involved with the personal lives of employees and their is definitely preferential treatment of certain employees. A lot of empty promises and constant change of policies. I would not recommend them as an employer to anyone.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring family members for positions they're not qualified for.

    I have been working at Monroe College part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    free reign to develop your courses (for the most part - some intro classes have departmental final exams - make sure you get a copy of it so you're teaching what's on it!)

    Cons

    you have to pay for your own parking, even though you're paid so little!

    I have been working at Monroe College full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Salaries are slightly above basic depending on employment level, a little bit of flexibility with work schedules

    Cons

    Promotions in name only or among a select few individuals, too many micro-managers, obvious power struggles amongst upper management

    Advice to Management

    Recognize the worth of, and talent within, your employees and pay all accordingly; stop enabling students in an effort to build a false sense of loyalty

    Pros

    The students are really what motivate you to do what is best for them. They have so much potential. Vacation encouraged. Won't get fired as long as you do "what you have to do."

    Cons

    No real growth, measly 3-4% merit raise annually, the people, managers, directors are all so fake, they only care about money not the students, bring in as many students as possible, NO WORK LIFE BALANCE! Late nights early mornings mandatory Saturday and after events you still stay and WORK LIKE SLAVE! Eye balling you if you leave just after 5, intimidation and scare tactics is the management style, idiots, this is not a place of higher ed, they forget its a college, function like a business..and the beat goes on and on and on!

    Advice to Management

    Give the students a proper union and lounge... especially in the BRONX...they have practically no where to relax. No professional development available outside the "college", the support for students is nice but geez...this place is horrid. And the pay seems decent at first but they will OVER WORK THE CRAP OUTTA YA.

    Pros

    Good benefits, somewhat more pay than other schools, get out early on Fridays

    Cons

    They work you like an animal, no work life balance, it is a money making machine and staff is not there for the students, students are violent and dangerous, high staff turnover,

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at how you treat people and they way you speak to others. This is what perpetuates the culture. Why are your staff always leaving?

    Pros

    If you are a recent college grad, this is a great place to start. A lot of opportunities to learn and grow. Very generous to students and puts them first at all times.

    Cons

    Can be somewhat of a monopoly sometimes, hard to move and grow for some people. Salary could be better, and we had to work long hours and weekends without being compensated.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to your staff and find out what their needs are, not what you think is right for them. People would stay longer and give a lot more if they believed they were valued and appreciated.
