    Former Employee - Work Study Student in Old Westbury, NY

    I worked at New York Institute of Technology part-time for 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 for 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.

    Pros

    I've been teaching as an adjunct for two years. The department gives the faculty a lot of independence. The paperwork is minimal. Most students are respectful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to give adjuncts longer term of appointment.
