    I worked at Alfred State College part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great work environment. Everyone is friendly and helpful. I really liked coming to work everyday. Variety of work was also nice. New ideas were always welcome.

    Cons

    At the time, there were strict branding guidelines. While these are beneficial in many ways they were also very limiting on the creative process. Everything looked the same.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. The office environment is 90% of what kept me happy working here.

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Alfred State College full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    small class sizes, great students, diversity in student body

    Cons

    cronyism, a small number of tenured professors 'control' things at this small, remote campus in western New York. The campus is struggling to transition from a two-year to a four-year school.

    Advice to Management

    You will continue to lose new PhDs until administrations changes the manner in which faculty are addressed.

    I worked at Alfred State College part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    As a student working in the IT department, the hours were very flexible. It's extremely relevant to those in a technical major, but also helpful to those without. You'll get a lot of hands on experience for hardware and get your first look at how a company would handle a ticketing system. A great place to start out. Opportunity for summer jobs as well.

    Cons

    Infrastructure could be handled a little better, but it's nothing big.

    Advice to Management

    Keep being friendly and ask the software majors to develop systems for you!
