    A third tier college that does care about their students

    Adjunct Associate Professor (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsYou can teach without a doctorate degree. The deans are very passionate about education

    ConsThe facilities are a joke. They are old, dirty and have no modern equipment. The pay is not why you teach here. The support staff is unhelpful and students seem to be there because they have financial aid.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet better staff that wants to help professors. Try to be less money conscious and actually think of your professors.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    A joke of an educational institution

    Librarian (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsMidtown campus is located in a great neighborhood
    There are a handful of excellent people

    ConsVery low academic standards & poor student support
    Sluggish and out of touch administration
    Very few perks of any kind
    Culture of complaint and dissatisfaction without any real effort to improve
    Everything is more difficult than it needs to be

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake an effort to understand the standard levels of service and academic preparation of peer institutions and make an effort to emulate them. Students should be the highest priority, not ego and nepotism.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    A Third Rate College

    Administrative Associate (Former Employee) Bay Shore, NY

    ProsThe time off for all the Jewish Holidays

    ConsThey are a backward college and support staff departments are run as if it's still 1987...Touro does not invest in technology. Most of the support staff that work with the students have never been to college themselves. The Bay Shore Campus pays it's people peanuts and thinks that the time off they give you should compensate for low pay and poor working conditions. Touro has no admission standards and will accept anyone who can pay the $500 deposit.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop with the favoritism and pay attention to what's going on around you.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    A pretty good side job

    Adjunct Instructor (Former Employee)

    ProsGood hours (in the evenings).
    Freedom to create and deliver a class the way you want.
    While not all students are motivated, there are a good number who are, and teaching the class was a rewarding experience.

    ConsUncertainty about future employment - you aren't given much notice before finding out if you're giving a class next semester

    Advice to Senior ManagementAs an adjunct, I didn't have much exposure to the inner workings. I was satisfied with my experience.
