    Pros

    Great location. Colleagues are good people. Fun to work. Good benefits. Early Friday release. Paid Jewish holidays.

    Cons

    No room for evolvement within company. Low pay. No raises for the past 3 years. Seniors will keep adding work that is not part of your job description without compensating you for it.

    Advice to Management

    Let go of the reigns. Listen to your employees. There's too much micromanagement and long meetings which are not necessary.

    Pros

    -Half day Fridays
    -Jewish holidays off

    Cons

    Everything is a mess, majority of the people are lazy and will make you go in circles to get a simple answer. There is no structure!

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to reward hard working employees then there won't be a high turnover rate.

    Pros

    Holidays. Short days on Fridays.

    Cons

    Very low pay. Virtually no raise in years. No bonuses. Inhumanly enormous work load that needs to be done by deadline while always understaffed.
    No praise or appreciation from bosses. Too many bosses and not enough workers.

    Advice to Management

    Hire a CEO and top brass people that know the inner workings of an Academic institution (or any business) and how to successfully administrate it.


  9. Some of the best years of my 25-year college teaching career happened at Touro. Ever grateful.

    Pros

    The only pros are department based, not college based:

    Schedule and Days off

    Culture of our department (not speaking of the entire college)

    Fair and unbiased Chairperson/department leadership

    Students in this department are academically striving to be better

    Strong, long term full-time faculty, good adjunct support in our department

    Cons

    Human Resource department is joke - they are for the company, not the employee when you reach out to them.

    Low pay and no room for professional growth

    It's an old man's club - if you are a woman, especially a non-Jewish one, good luck going anywhere. The executives are pre-dominantly old Jewish men who live in the past and treat it more like a business rather than an educational institution.

    The culture of the college is joke. It has a bad reputation on the streets, and most students come in thinking the worst, but they get financial aid, so they stay.

    You get the same story year after year why there is no cost-of-living raises, or merit raises, and it's a pack of lies.

    Low academic standings in the liberal art programs, and then they expect programs to take students into pre-professional programs because they are Touro students. Then they fail out when the work is actually challenging.

    The college is more worried about meeting the "numbers" with students, rather than admitting quality over quantity.

    Students have said certain liberal art programs are a joke, waste of time, and their grades are handed to them, not representing true academic success. Sets up the student for failure in professional programs and the real world.

    NEPOTISM at it's finest!!

    Advice to Management

    Welcome to the 21st century. There needs to be more room for professional growth and you need to treat all your employees fairly..not just the boys club. There needs to be a whole culture change - work for your students, not your bottom line. You can't change your reputation on the street when it doesn't change from the top down. There's no connect between executive personnel and departments. Live your mission instead of just putting it in writing. Social Justice is non-existent.


  11. A pleasant and vibrant environment to work in.

    Unequal distribution of administrative duties.
