    I worked at New York Medical College full-time

    Pros

    The hours and days off. Started off with 5 weeks vacation. Work day was 7.5 hrs. Lovely.

    Cons

    My particular job was funded by both the hospital and the school. This meant no one had to take ownership for my salary. Which meant prior to me taking the position and after I left, the pay has not increased in 13 years.

    Advice to Management

    Pay must at the very least increase to keep up with inflation.

    I worked at New York Medical College full-time

    Pros

    Jewish Holidays off; get experience; decent pay

    Cons

    Some of the management has horrible attitudes and horrible communication. Very little diversity. They do everything the old way...yes, they still usetypewriters every now and again. Everything is on paper. There is no real benefit to working here other than getting some experience. Definitely a place to use as a stepping stone to go somewhere else.

    I have been working at New York Medical College full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Faculty and people lower down in the ranks are generally pretty good, and care about the students. Location is near several highways, making commuting easy.

    Cons

    This is an institution that has lost its moral compass. Upper management have a demonstrated habit of micromanaging and shooting the messenger, benefits for the staff and students are being scaled back, in part due to financial mismanagement by the CEO. Tuition is at the high end among schools, pay is at the low end, and there haven't been raises for two of the last three years "because we don't have enough money." But somehow we're finding money to restore old paintings and hang them on the wall.

    Advice to Management

    Sever the relationship with Touro. Things weren't perfect when the college was owned by the Catholic Church, but at least they have morals. Also, invest in your people. Providing covering the cost of tuition for employees who want to take classes at NYMC cost the college nothing, but was a big perk; cutting that back to covering only 25% was a big insult: it looks like you're trying to make money off of your people, rather than invest in them.

    Pros

    Many extremely knowledgeable, accomplished and dedicated faculty members. Decent pay and benefits, depending on the position.

    Cons

    You're most apt to find the treacherous backbiting that academia is known for in the administration rather than the faculty. The finance department is filled with human misery. The development department is a snake pit. The human resources department is rotten at the core. They're incompetent and they only look out for themselves.

    Advice to Management

    Ream out human resources and start over.

    need to improve funding resources

    Pros

    For a college that is going under the overall work environment was just par. The cafe areas had decent somewhat edible food. The nicest staff was food service. The maintenance man staff keeps the building clean and there is a lot of parking.

    Cons

    The senior managment talked negatively about everyone, even the very nice people. There is a serious issue at this place and its going unaddressed because the college is failing and no one wants to take these positions anyways. Be careful when you turn your back at NYMC because you might get a knife. Numerous attempts were made to discuss unfair treatment with HR or those acting in the position of human resources. Nothing was done to fix the problem. This was probably the worst department to work. Not all departments were this bad from what I hear however.

    Advice to Management

    Its a sad day when an employee is not comfortable taking issues to the H.R./Administrator because of favortism among other employees. Treat ALL your employees with respect the same way the maintence man was treated.
