    I worked at Queens College

    Pros

    It was an extremely easy job. The office culture was ok considering everyone was the same age. There is no room for personal growth. Easy easy easy easy easy!

    Cons

    There is no room for personal growth. People act like children sometimes including the management. Extremely poor communication between the upper management and counselors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better communication

    I worked at Queens College

    Pros

    None, there is nothing pleasant about working here.

    Cons

    Negative environment, this is where all the people who were mediocre/below average in college end up working. As a result it is a very lazy, poor work environment because there is no motivation to do better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees better and don't waste their time.

    I worked at Queens College part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible hours and an understanding boss allowed for a perfect employment while in college. Good co-workers made the time more enjoyable.

    Cons

    The building was poorly maintained and flooded regularly. The schedulers routinely would double book rooms and cause the staff to run around trying to find a new room to use. Also the pay was less than desirable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase pay and fix the building. Also fix the scheduling program to disallow double booking of rooms.
