    blatantly illegal exploitation

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Vallejo, CA

    ProsFew people are good. Only good for a stop gap employment. Not a place you'd grow.

    ConsTU always looks to get something for nothing. Their Faculty selection system is biased against proper research, which they claim to outsource. Researchers and Research are both discouraged. Facilities and and their management requires a proper scrutiny, and probably an NIH Audit.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSupport your subordinate staff sometimes. Do not always kowtow to your superiors in NY.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Touro University Nevada

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Henderson, NV

    ProsThey offer many holidays because it's a Jewish institution and they give the regular holidays plus the Jewish holidays. Usually about 20 or more days per year.

    ConsUnfortunately, the administrative staff is treated as if they aren't as important as administration and faculty. Several of the executive positions treat staff condescendently.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat all employees fairly, it shouldn't matter what your position is, or who you know, all employees should be treated the same. The rules should apply to all, equally. Make salaries equal within the ranks, administrative assistants salaries vary from as much as 27K to 53K per year. It's very unfair to treat and pay some better than others simply due to their association/friendship with an executive.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Decent company to work for. They just need to look at the big picture more.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsRank and file Staff and Faculty are for the most part great people to work with.
    Mare Island location has alot of history behind it.

    ConsUpper management (espicually in New York) treats employees as cattle sometimes.
    Saleries need to be brought up the industry standards for non faculty positions.

    Advice to Senior ManagementVERY shortsighted vision. Projects that need to be taken care of get pushed back or cancelled all together when the college has 1 bad quarter or gets hosed by bad investments. Try to look at the big picture and realize that spending a little money on things like the facilities or building upgrades that would do nothing but improve things on campus are a worthwile endeavor to undertake. There is no need to be as cheap as they usually are. Thrify is one thing, cheap is another.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
