    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 Management

    Make it more organised

    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 Management

    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.

    Pros

    Easy atmosphere to be in if you steer clear of department drama and campus politics. Hard to disappoint your boss, especially when tasks at this campus are typically regular and mundane.

    Cons

    Can't move up. There is a lot of tension between coworkers at times of change. Not much room to grow and learn new things. People don't like change there, even if it is for the better.
