    Pros

    Good salary.
    You wont be hired unless you are a grad student. So the pro would be getting in touch with the undergrad life which syracuse is so popular for.

    Cons

    Problem is you are not assured so-and-so no of hours per week. During midterms and finals, you ll get a lotta students but otherwise cant say.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make it more organised

    Current Employee - Staff in Syracuse, NY

    I have been working at Syracuse University part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    If you work in a school or college you can spend as freely as you want - parties, Stickley furniture, committee meetings at swank resorts.

    Cons

    More work, less people
    Staff are treated/looked at as excess to get rid of
    Cost cutting is ALWAYS on the administrative side - academic and executive staff can be added and added but never have to reduce cost. There's excess spending in every school/college and in Criuse Hinds Hall wher so many Vice Presidents of x, of y, of z and so on.
    New chancelor added what I would guess is a HIGHLY PAID man to cut costs on the administrative side (but nit schools/colleges or the high ranking plethora of VPS, AVPS, ASST VPS, ect ) but has also KEPT ON the extremely expensive consulting group of Bane. Isn't that a cost to cut???

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    See above.
    Chancelr needs to look at waste & extrvagence in schools/colleges. He also needs to stop being so autocratic. SU was excited when the last chancelor left but Syverud is almost worse. Su is going down fast sadly - it's all the community talks about.
