Pros

The salary and benefits are outstanding. At times I have felt that I'm overpaid. As of right now you don't pay for your health benefits and the vacation time is overly generous. Also, as compared to a 4-year institution, you have very little night and weekend work.

Cons

Institution is VERY top-heavy. There are a whole class of college-wide Associate Deans who seem to do nothing. The institution would benefit from putting them back into the classroom and having lower paid administrators absorb their job functions.

Advice to Management

Listen to your people. The upper levels do NOT accept criticism well and have created an environment of fear of speaking up. The institution also gives in too easily to the few senior faculty who are entrenched and not open to new or fresh ideas.

    I have been working at Suffolk County Community College (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good work environment. Everyone willing to work together towards common goal

    Cons

    Job advancement is very difficult. Part time work is easier to come by than full time-probably due to health benefits. Mandatory 2-week furlough for College Aides makes it tough to handle the work load when an office is short staffed.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more full-time workers and reduce the overall college aide positions. It would give the departments more consistency since you would have the same people working everyday and not only 15 or 17 hours a week.
