    Students and family were very 'needy' and did not pay attention to emails or policies, and were very aggressive when complaining

    Pros

    -Great Place
    -Dynamic Work
    -Not overly managed

    Cons

    -Pay is super weak right now because most of the higher ups are older and are making well over 100K while talented middle age workers make crumbs
    -Form over function can appear from time to time.

    Advice to Management

    Pay people what they are worth. Most of your talented middle level people aren't greedy, they just want to live a semi-comfortable life.

    I worked at SUNY Albany full-time

    Pros

    Salaries and benefits are good

    Cons

    Workplace culture is awful. Mediocrity is not only tolerated, but promoted by a union-dominated culture and weak leaders. Innovation and excellence are discouraged, even punished. And there are few women leaders.

    Advice to Management

    Get serious about making this place what it once was - one of the best SUNY campuses. Stop driving away innovative and experienced leaders.
