    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at SUNY Upstate Medical University full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, New York State Retirement System, UUP Union for faculty and professionals, and decent pay for the area which has a very reasonable cost of living..

    Cons

    Under the current leadership at the College of Nursing, the deparment has the most hostile working environment I have ever encountered. The dean and associate dean are both insulting, belittling monsters that seem to delight in reducing both faculty and staff to tears for absolutely no good reason at all. The dean has placed some kind of untruthful, trumped up disciplinary warning in nearly everyone's personnel file and in the last 15 months, 10 people have left - 5 faculty (including tenured faculty) and 5 staff. This mass exodus alone from such a small department should say it all.

    Advice to Management

    Replace the administration at the College of Nursing ASAP before you lose anymore faculty and staff.

    Pros

    The job is fairly stable.

    Cons

    It's difficult because there are three different kinds of employees with different benefits and rules. State, research foundation and medbest. Medbest is the worst for time off and health coverage.

    I worked at SUNY Upstate Medical University (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    this institute provides good benefits, including health insurance choices, and lot of paid off days; Work time is flexible. People here are nice.

    Cons

    Salary is relative low, no bonus for research positions. A lot of job need to be done even at weekend time.

    Advice to Management

    Get to know each individual's needs, and find out what drives them; provide more training and opportunities for people to shine.

    Pros

    Small, so it easy to get around. Has all the basic resources needed to do research. Starting to renovate and adding to the lab space

    Cons

    It is really hard to get the student body to get together and function as a core. It is ever more difficult to try to get faculty to collaborate.

    Pros

    It is small so it is easy to seek help and advice from colleagues and professors.

    Cons

    No work-life balance, time-offs almost impossible depending on lab head. Almost no consideration of the needs of Graduate students.

    Advice to Management

    Consider setting a standard across all departments for mandatory time-offs and take considerations of the students and post docs seriously.
