    It was a pleasant and good learning experience working with the suny RF

    Research Assistant (Current Employee) Albany, NY

    ProsThere is scope to grow, you get to learn a lot .The company is very well organised.
    I also had the freedom to make a contribution without being scrutinized.

    ConsAlbany is not a great place. If you want a top level programming job, then there are not as many opportunities here.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement is very cooperative and friendly.
    They take good care of the employees.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Research Assistant to Professor

    Graduate Research Assistant (Current Employee) Binghamton, NY

    Either busy or nothing because of contract work with NYS, though timing usually works out .

    Senior Education Specialist (Current Employee) Albany, NY

    ProsRoom for advancement, however all the managers know each other and are sometimes reluctant to let you go. Very flexible with schedule in most departments. Staff is very friendly and fun. Salary is comparable to most other industries.

    ConsMany layers of management and takes forever to get anything approved. Change is not in their name and do not expect it. The RF hires many retired State workers as "favors" for future work to keep them in good graces with the State govt.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWatch the staff better, the ones who do nothing seem to be able to convince mgt they do everything and all the worker bees know better.
