    Pros

    Easy work environment. Flexible. Good schedules. Nice campus. Friendly staff. Overall a pretty good experience working at the Selden campus.

    Cons

    No room for growth. Even with great reviews there was no opportunity to stay past a semester. Pretty strange that they don't seek to keep talent.

    Pros

    The people are really nice and the benefits package is amazing. It's nice to know that the work that I do can have a big impact on those in need.

    Cons

    The institution is a bit too large for it's own good. It makes it slow to push through changes and adapt to the current needs of the environment. As with many places of work politics plays a significant role unfortunately.

    Pros

    Clean and optimistic setting. Feel comfortable and inspired by other teachers.

    Cons

    Hard to get something full time. Have to sometimes deal with annoying co-workers but that's expected anywhere. The pay is pretty lousy for an adjunct. They need more full time workers or start paying adjuncts a reasonable salary.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of ancient professors and hire some new and enthusiastic teachers.

    Pros

    Suffolk County Community College is a very interesting place in which to work. My colleagues are stimulating, I have a great deal of autonomy in how I teach my courses, and I am encouraged to grow professionally and intellectually. I highly recommend Suffolk County Community College as a place to work.

    Cons

    There is some bureaucracy at the the college, and sometimes decisions made by the upper administration do not make so much sense.

    Advice to Management

    1.) Create more new courses in the sciences, mathematics, and technology. 2.) Create a more effective placement test system for incoming students.
