    The best time of my life

    Team Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsWorking with my staff is something I look forward to every day. Not only is the staff that I work with great, but the kids are great as well. I have made some friends I will have for the rest of my life and if it wasn't for Syracuse University, things wouldn't have been the same.

    ConsA bit time consuming, it sometimes affects my studies but I manage to do well.

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

    ProsPlenty of people to meet and activities to join, excellent partnership with SUNY ESF next door, plenty of funding for STEM graduate students. Low cost of living. Plenty of Syracuse pride. Good benefits for students.

    ConsLocation, location, location. Snowy, windy, wet in the winter, hot and humid in the summer. Lesser reputation than nearby neighbor, Cornell University. Typical academic infighting.

    Syracuse University Online Platforms is fun

    Web Developer (Former Employee)
    Syracuse, NY

    Pros- Great work environment
    - Fun people to work with
    - Great boss
    - Very flexible, I chose my hours
    - Was offered a full time position after I graduated

    Cons- Other departments might not be as fun
    - Pay could be better but not bad for a college job
    - Mostly students worked where I did so some people were unqualified for the position

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe management needs to take better care when hiring and could also benefit from moving into a new space that is more conducive to collaboration.

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