    I worked at Stony Brook University part-time

    Pros

    The entire community is friendly and helpful. Ive worked in a few different departments of SB and have had the pleasure of working with pleasant staff members who are always ready and willing to help each other. I admire that Stony Brook is committed to student success.

    Cons

    The pay is not the best but it mostly depends on the budget of the department and the number of workers they can afford to pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some departments should have group building trainings so create a stronger bond and in turn, a more effective and efficient workplace.

    Pros

    Stony Brook has a lot to offer. There are a multitude of opportunities for ambitious students who are willing to look hard enough.

    Cons

    Stony Brook doesn't have as much to offer as other schools. Campus life is quite dull and it sometimes takes a little longer for students to find their niche.
