    I have been working at Binghamton University part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some flexibility in hours and the benefits are very good. The best thing has been interfacing with students about topics both parties care about - discussions on the subject matter, of course, but also the tangents and what young people are interested, worried, and thinking about.

    Cons

    Parking. While part-timers are welcome and necessary for the proper functioning of the university, unfortunately the meetings and opportunities offered are definitely in favor of those that work 10am-4pm.

    Advice to Management

    Schedule more evening events and opportunities to allow for more of the part-timers to participate. Offer more money for those willing to take on more responsibilities. Provide a career path to full-time that would be mutually beneficial.
