    Pros

    Good holidays,vacation time, steady work, coworkers, 1199 was the Union and medical insurance was outstanding. Overtime was abundant at times then nonexistent.

    Cons

    After a while the management and higher ups pinched pennies, made poor decisions, and mistreated employees. I couldn't stomach the environment any longer.

    Advice to Management

    They won't take advise from a former employee. It's all about money to them and that is the bottom line. Absolutely no loyalty.

    Pros

    closed on all major Jewish holidays, pleasant colleagues, flexible about scheduling. great tuition benefits for staff if you want to take graduate courses or if you would send your children there.

    Cons

    concerns about long-term financial stability, constant threats of budget cuts, salary freezes, hiring freezes and layoffs. Low morale among faculty and staff due to these concerns.

    Pros

    Great people, ability to affect change, and lots of potential.

    Cons

    If a department or office has a poor leader, change can be impossible. Your ability to get things done with other departments depends entirely on the people in that department and it can be difficult if they are difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!

    Pros

    The early Fridays, smattering of days off for jewish holidays, atmosphere so relaxed it makes a morgue seem fast paced and scintillating.

    Cons

    No room for growth, random reassignments regardless of what you were hired for, HR employees make the dmv staff look competent and interested, too many ignorant 27 year olds placed in power positions bc their parents made the right donations and just incompetence everywhere you look from the president on down. No one gives a damn. I've been in my position for 5 years without a formal review. Unheard of.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to why people are quitting in droves, pay attention to why student applications are down, there's a reason no one wants to be at your school and it isn't just the bleak and depressing surrounding neighborhood, it's the rot from the inside out, the constant bad press, the terrible pay and the overall bad reputation.
