        Neutral Outlook
        No opinion of CEO

        I worked at Ithaca College full-time for more than 6 years

        Pros

        Faculty Collegial in General, Benefit Packages Very Good

        Cons

        Administratively Overbearing and Top-Heavy, No Revenue Sharing with Faculty, Out of Control Student Entitlement.

        Advice to Management

        IC is one of the most expensive colleges in the country to attend, but faculty see essentially none of this money. The bloated student tuition predictably ends up in the pockets of the rather arrogant and incompetent ranks of upper administration. There is significant pressure to inflate grades and toe orthodoxy in the classroom. No significant support from admin or senior faculty for the RTP process.

        Disapproves of CEO

        I have been working at Ithaca College full-time for more than 6 years

        Pros

        Friendly, open, relaxed and interesting educational atmosphere. Great benefits and management is truly open to hear your ideas to improve things, especially if they directly impact the student experience.

        Cons

        Unsustainable demographics for the current financial situation (61k/year - pulling most students from the shrinking northeast region). Fewer students can pay the full ride and the budget is almost completely tuition driven. Running at near break even because of 50% discounting, so the 61k is an illusion.

        Advice to Management

        Work hard to build an endowment. Expand the best performing schools and focus on what we can be top 5% in (music, physical therapy, emerging media) in and drop the social sciences, liberal arts, etc. that can be taught at every community college.

        I have been working at Ithaca College full-time

        Pros

        Great job place, everybody is helpful, the class enrollment is reasonable, and the college is well managed.

        Cons

        I think the location (Ithaca-NY) is not the best for people used to live in metropolitan areas, however, it has the small town feeling for those that may like.
