    Pros

    A relaxed and friendly office, co-workers will help motivate you to complete your work in the best way possible.

    Cons

    There isn't too much to put here, I've had three jobs on campus and working in the admissions office has been the best one.

    I worked at SUNY Morrisville College of Ag & Tech part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Generally a hands-off approach from administration. Adaptable class timing for Adjuncts to minimize interference with our primary jobs. Beautiful location!

    Cons

    Most of the resources are applied to areas other than science laboratory equipment.

    Advice to Management

    Nice place to work overall!

    Pros

    There are a lot of opportunities in the SUNY system to transfer to teach at an excellent four-year college or graduate scool. Also, many of the students here are underprepared in high school, so you can really make a measurable difference in their lives. No better feeling in the world.

    Cons

    The administration here is all about numbers. More students equals more revenue. If an at-risk student gets below a 1.0 and makes no effort, they keep them until their aid and/or loans are maxed out. If they have no chance at succeeding, but can play football, or basketball, let's keep them on academic probation until they get so frustrated they end up in front of the student judicial board, or worse.

    Advice to Management

    The administration should give up the bonuses the college foundation is giving them unless they agree to be measured themselves by their performance. Stop hiring cousins of politicians, or spouses of current employees without a search.

    Pros

    Kids really need help so it is rewarding

    Cons

    School has no clue what direction they want to head. The school is a test dummy for the SUNY system. Upper management changes every year.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out what the actual goal is and then explain that to employees. Take care of the employees that work not the employees that sit around and wait for the clock to hit 5pm.


  6. "Tough job that lacks support"

    I worked at SUNY Morrisville College of Ag & Tech (More than a year)

    Pros

    Compensation is based of the state system so it is fair.

    Cons

    Being a two year school your student staff is always turning over.

    Advice to Management

    More training for young staff. This is a difficult college to work at and the staff could use more training
