    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    There are absolutely none. Not even kidding.

    Cons

    Terrible pay, professors take advantage (in all terms) of graduate students, health care is the worst and doesn't even really cover dental. It's the most idiotic admin ever - upped pay for entry workers by 30%. Therefore, entry workers paid more than experienced workers. How does that make sense?

    Advice to Management

    Pay according to experience, not year of entry.
