    I worked at Nyack College (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good college with a commendable mission. Colleagues are usually very approachable and professional.

    Cons

    If you are an experienced professional, you will find it tricky to further your growth. Working here is better suited for someone either just starting off in the field (entry level) or someone with vast experience (executive leadership).

    Advice to Management

    Be aware of sincere, passionate, reliable people who should be promoted to new positions or provided with room for further growth so that you can maintain staff loyalty and minimize burn out. Keep promoting a spiritually, mentally, and emotionally uplifting atmosphere, as it makes a huge difference in managing challenges and serving our students well.

    I worked at Nyack College (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The students are wonderful. Work is very fulfilling.

    Cons

    Leadership seems to have forgotten the school's founding purpose of educating students, and are more focused on making money. All organizations need to focus on their financial condition, but not at the expense of damage to the core product.

    Advice to Management

    Improve financial condition by increasing retention rates, which means providing needed support services. Increase enrollment and improve brand image by providing education that adequately prepares graduates.
