    I have been working at Wagner College part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Work-life balance is great. Coworkers are friendly and helpful.

    Cons

    Extremely stressful environment. Salaries are not great.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If the offices communicated better, working on campus would be much easier. More positions need to be hired in each office to ensure that each person is getting their work done. Each employee has too much of a workload.

    Pros

    Cool area, nice people, that's about it.

    Cons

    no money, tuition is too high, students don't want to come here for anything other than theater, so the only people here are theater kids

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We don't need 15 Vice Presidents for this or that making 80K to make zero decisions that actually matter, you need a stronger support staff.

    I have been working at Wagner College part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fun to work with students. Great opportunity to read interesting papers and work with other students. I learned a lot from the papers I was tutoring, and the experience helped my people skills.

    Cons

    You get paid very infrequently. The entire tutoring center can be very unorganized but at the same time you are working with some great people.

    I have been working at Wagner College full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Beautiful well kept grounds, historical buildings that could use a little TLC definitely that private school feel to it. Pretty much all of the employees here are very nice, respectable and professional. Really a good place to work on Staten Island being that there aren't that many employment opportunities here other than Staten Island Hospital. Great opportunities for advancement in your education or the education of your children.

    Cons

    Pay is pretty low but considering Staten Island doesn't offer much in terms of employment its acceptable. Small campus so everyone knows everything! Even if you don't think anyone notices anything trust me they are watching!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reorganize the hierarchy it can be difficult to know who is in charge of what area. Then at times times its quite puzzling as to why that person is in charge of that specific area?
