    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    As Grad Assistant, I was able to work closely with my HRIS department and gain research experience in my field. As MBA Student, did not feel like "another number" as you may at bigger business schools.

    Cons

    None I can think of.

    Supportive Atmosphere

    Oct 31, 2022 - Graduate Student Researcher 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Atmospheric graduate program that strongly takes into consideration feedback from its students. Very supportive and provides many resources. Tight knit department.

    Cons

    The building is too cold! Lack of diversity which more so reflects atmospheric science than the program.

    Depends on your department but mine was great.

    Jun 11, 2022 - Graduate Assistant in Albany, NY
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    As a graduate assistant, it's all about which department you are actually in. This also impacts your stipend and potential tuition coverage. My supervisors and office head were amazing, extremely flexible, and supportive. Especially during covid.

    Cons

    Like I said it matters what department you are in. I would avoid working in the financial aid office unless they have drastically changed management and the work structure in that office.

    Racist and Thrives on Nepotism

    Sep 12, 2022 - Anonymous Employee 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Offers opportunity to understand a cross-section of college departments.

    Cons

    Racists managers even in departments that should be working to eliminate discrimination and racism. Many managers uphold policies and systems of white supremacy. A follower mentality in which "nice racism" is upheld and group mobbing, ostracizing and bullying is rampant. DEI is a sham and performative.
