    I worked at SUNY Cortland full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great place to work! Wonderful sense of community and welcoming environment. Overall really good people to work with. Students are great to work with.

    Cons

    Biased department politics. Unethical search committee practices. Lack of institutional accountability and support for documented and valid grievances.

    Advice to Management

    Oversee and monitor search committees and departmental politics in order to hold those who engage in unethical and inappropriate practices accountable. Ensure that those who are wronged are made whole.

    Pros

    Lead labs on own, some very interesting subject matter.

    Cons

    intro to psych class was considered very vigorous, discouraged rather than challenged some students. Some psych teachers had a 'memorize the book' philosophy.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on learning. Memorization is part of this, but not all. Treating students more fairly, while still challenging them, could reduce drop-out rates and student antagonism that takes certain forms. Of course, some academic issues are preexisting before a student attends Cortland. Some instruction from professors in dept based on personal, rather dogmatic opinions rather actual facts, which is a disservice.

    I have been working at SUNY Cortland part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Some benefits to being a personal trainer at SUNY Cortland are

    1) Great pace to get personal training experience as novice personal trainer.

    2) Access to a diverse group of clientele: young adults - elderly.

    3) Staff is friendly and supportive

    4) Supervisors are supportive and care about how you are doing as a trainer and as a person.

    Cons

    The only con I'll give to being a personal trainer at SUNY Cortland will be the wages.

    Advice to Management

    Increase the pay rate for the trainers at SUNY Cortland
