    A great deal of work for poor salary

    Current Employee - Associate Professor  in  Bayside, NY
    Current Employee - Associate Professor in Bayside, NY

    I have been working at Queensborough Community College full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The best part of this job is working with the students.

    Cons

    There are a great deal of expectations, which in reality are deemed more important to the administration that actually teaching! We are expected to do research in our fields, publish in peer reviewed journals, present at national and international conferences (which we have to pay for independently), and take active roles in both departmental and college wide committees, AND show service to our community.....all at a salary that is almost impossible to live on in this community.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get real!!!

    I worked at Queensborough Community College full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The students are great. The actual campus is amazing with rolling hills and views. There are fitness facilities available to faculty and staff for free including the track, gym, and pool.

    Cons

    The parking is horrible and that is with paying for a yearly pass in the lots. If you expect to have a place to actually work, you will be disappointed. They just shove everyone anywhere without adequate space, desks, or really anything.

    Pros

    Great work-life balance, good working environment, nice friendly colleagues. If you prefer to have plenty time for your family and simply enjoy stable and comfortable life, that is the place for you.

    Cons

    There is very limited career opportunities. And the pay is relatively low. Salary and promotion decisions are not transparent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promotion decisions should be more transparent.
