    I have been working at Fordham University part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I have worked on federally funded grants at Fordham Westchester for ten years (school of social work). The people who work here are terrific. It is a uniquely friendly and supportive environment not only at GSS but throughout the building.

    Cons

    Not a real campus...just one building. Not as exciting as Lincoln Center and fewer opportunities. Payroll is slow...took me a few months to get paid when grant first awarded.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work in supporting employees and making them feel that they are part of a real community.

    Friendly grad students and extremely competent head scientists, beautiful location, great compensation, lots of opportunities to learn from the experienced upper staff

    Limited upward mobility, some outdated lab equipment, out of the way for those living in the city since it's in Westchester County

    It would be great if the university funded for some more lab assistants
