    I worked at New York Institute of Technology

    Pros

    Easy job, relatively lax environment

    Cons

    People are pretty unhappy

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to understand what people below you are doing. Stop micromanaging when you have less knowledge of the process you are supposed to run than the people below you.

    I worked at New York Institute of Technology full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Many staff members figure out how to make it work, in their own bubble and they care about the students.

    Cons

    Very unhealthy work environment. Most staff are untrained and uninformed in policies. A LOT of favoritism. The president doesn't appear to be very comfortable in his own skin and therefore doesn't relate well to many.

    Former Employee - Work Study Student in Old Westbury, NY

    I worked at New York Institute of Technology part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Since this was a work-study position, I worked hand-in-hand with faculty, so they understood my work load from school.

    Cons

    Although they understood my workload from school, they still have expectations and required me to come in for a certain hours during the day, which sometimes affected my participation in school.

    A Rewarding and Trying Introduction to an Academic Career

    Former Employee - Assistant Professor in New York, NY
    Former Employee - Assistant Professor in New York, NY

    I worked at New York Institute of Technology full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The benefits are solid; the students are generally eager to learn; and the administration is generally supportive of all research efforts, especially those with regards to educational and instructional technology. There is often a great deal of freedom for developing innovative curricula, depending on the department, of course.

    Cons

    As with many large colleges, the life of a tenure-track assistant professor is a busy one, and trying to balance 4 courses a semester with university service and substantial research can be trying. Often times, the requirements for tenure are ambiguous or unknown, and may change.

    As for the students, the open admissions policy combined with a promise of quality training for employment gives a wide range of motivations and performance in the student body, and also may give them false hopes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Establish clear guidelines for achieving tenure.
