    I have been working at SUNY part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great students who know the value of an education. Generally good staff. Better treatment of adjunct faculty in some areas than many private colleges (for example, SUNY offers adjunct faculty health insurance)

    Cons

    Low pay, constant fiscal difficulties, poor communication in HR matters (health insurance provider keeps getting switched with little or no notification)

    Advice to Management

    Cut out all the administrative positions that are highly-paid and unnecessary, and pay the adjunct faculty who teach more than half the classes a living wage. Current salaries are half what they were in the 1970s!
