  1.  

    Great place to work!

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Siena College

    Pros

    Good work environment, very good benefits and time off as well. Management was great at accommodating for family emergencies and I think it is a great starting job

    Cons

    Salary is not as high as it could be but it was never cut which was good. The problem was that the vision of the the college needs to be clearer.

    Pros

    Supportive department leadership...a college philosophy that's motivating...positive, interested, engaged students

    Cons

    only one: as adjunct staff, one is naturally not a full member of the college teaching faculty

    Continue to engage faculty in strategic planning processes

    Pros

    Some of the students are alright and the town is not bad

    Low pay, bullying from professors who think they are all that and can just be arrogant to staff members, they steal stuff. One professor was caught buying beer and lottery tickets with the credit card he stole from the Friary.
