    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at SUNY part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    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!

    Cons

    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!

      I worked at SUNY full-time for more than 5 years

      Pros

      Interaction with your students and colleagues...all elements in teaching.

      Cons

      SUNY Canton...little real leadership (too much politics) not enough time spent with students... those who kissed enough butt were the only ones to move up the ranks.

      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...

      Advice to Management

      Wake up and listen to your employees. Encourage growth and expansion by fully utilizing your employees' knowledge base. Encourage teamwork and not behind the back gossiping. Resolve problems as they occur and not ignore them until they resurface again. Spend a day in each dept to see what actually occurs each day.
