    Great working environment. I encourage everyone to gain experience with people who actually believe in you and want you to succeed! My experience for SUNY has been great!

    Working for a state or government institution does not pay as much as the private sector, but have some pride that you are playing an important role in the education of your statesmen!

    Doesn't Recommend

    I have been working at SUNY

    Pros

    Health Benefits. Working 10 months out of the year and paid for 12. Majority of people are great. Great bookstore. Beautiful area. Pretty decent pay.

    Cons

    No support for professional development. No coverage of professional dues. Management is incompetent. Passive aggressive is the name of the Mascot of the college. Lower level staff are able to comment on your potential for renewal. Resistance to change and integration of new techniques. Supervisors listen to whiney students and do not stand by faculty. Facilities are in need of immediate replacement. State budget cuts horrible.
