    I have been working at Queens College full-time

    Pros

    I loved it but,the work was stressful and exhausting and I quit because I went to a different school so the commute was far but the hours are flexible.

    Cons

    Long hours with no breaks and a lot of gossip between girls . there is also favoritism between many workers. I loved it except for all of this.

    Advice to Management

    Keeo grooming standards for guys and,don't let girls talk and flirt with other students and have favoritism in the building. Leave that for elsewhere.

    Pros

    A lot of freedom as an adjust instructor, and can be flexible to your schedule. If you are a grad student, also get your tuition paid

    Cons

    If you don't have a teaching fellowship, it doesn't pay that much. Also, it is a local school so the range of students you teach is very variable

    Advice to Management

    Give the adjunct instructors (phd students, grad students, etc) more training in teaching.

    Pros

    No pros working for Darryl Jacobs

    Cons

    He is a bully, sucks up your life with his petty needs, exploits you and assumes everything. He is rude, disrespectful, and immature. Emotionally driven and extremely arrogant. Has no idea how to run a program and cannot handle pressure.

    Advice to Management

    Do not work for this man. He is a poison to have known him.

    Pros

    Great students; interesting and brilliant faculty; beautiful campus; nice amenities; good benefits

    Cons

    People don't get promoted unless they are close to the top managers. Large turnover, particularly recently - must be a reason for that! Everyone's worried about losing their jobs. Long hours, lots of stress, micro-managers. When people resign or are fired, the employees who are still on staff have to take up the slack. Watch your back - very political environment.

    Advice to Management

    Promote a warm, hospitable, open door culture and a better work/life balance. You'll have a happier, more productive staff.

    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 Management

    Better communication
