    I worked at Ithaca College part-time

    Pros

    Knowledgeable faculty/staff who are willing to help you learn as much as you can. Very supportive environment.

    Cons

    Roshan was disconnected from campus life, students, and many faculty.

    Advice to Management

    With the new president of the recently in place, I'm hoping to see some positive changes at IC.

    I have been working at Ithaca College full-time

    Pros

    Not many pros--the school has been in chaos for years, and it is unlikely to improve based on resources and environment.

    Cons

    Admin weighs down junior tenure track faculty with service that would never occur at other schools. No thought to retention of faculty. Lots of assessment of campus climate, but no actionable plans to improve faculty atmosphere. Application drop means more under prepared students admitted and lots of exceptions to standard academic integrity. Accepting unethical behavior or cheating to avoid a call from a parent or a transfer to another school is not a good policy.

    Advice to Management

    This is an educational institution, not a concierge service. Improve academic rigor and reinforce academic integrity. Support and nurture faculty who can deliver transformative experiences--don't put them into political committees that could be detrimental at T&P time.
