I have been working at SUNY Buffalo full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

The grad school is awesome. The chemistry department that I work in is has approximately 150 graduate students. The compensation that the grad students get is pretty good for a place like Buffalo, where the expenses are pretty low compared to big cities.

Cons

The climate is definitely the worst thing about Buffalo. Long winters and short summers. The compensation for the professors is quite low, because its a state university. Because of this they are not able to retain talented scientists from being nicked by other big universities.

Advice to Management

Professors should get better incentives to stay put for a long time. That is what builds the reputation of the University as a center for good science (not just the buildings and infrastructure).

    I have been working at SUNY Buffalo part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They offer a generous hourly pay for the academic tutor position at UB Alumni Arena. The staff are friendly and the tutees (Most of them at least) do care about learning.

    Cons

    Some times the students do not show up to their tutor appointments. Other than that, This place is a really nice place to work for.


  2. "Very relaxed and warm-welcomed yet very research rich environment."

    I have been working at SUNY Buffalo full-time

    Pros

    People here are super friendly and it is in fact not as cold as how people perceive. So many great opportunities available for students to explore.

    Cons

    there is actually nothing I would complain about it! I totally love that place that I now would prefer stay in suburb rather than big cities.
