    I worked at Siena College (More than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent staff with a friendly environment and a wealth of knowledge. Everyone is very willing to lend a hand when needed.

    Cons

    The pay could be better and the range of positions could be wider. Develop the diversity of jobs more.

    I worked at Siena College part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working at Siena my four years was so much fun and a highlight in my college experience. It never got in the way of my studies because the department I worked for allowed me to choose my hours.

    Cons

    Work Study is paid below minimum wage because of the tuition break which stinks because as a college student, you need as much as you can get. They should pay you minimum wage not below.

    Pros

    Siena college provides a good studying environment.

    Cons

    Sometimes it is too profit oriented that students get annoyed

    Advice to Management

    They should evaluate their professors once a while

    I worked at Siena College (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Was a great place to work with great people. I learned a lot of skills that I got to take with me to my current job.

    Cons

    Raises are few and far to come by. I worked there for 3 years and only got one raise. They don't do raises based on your individual performance rather than the performance of the school as a whole. You all either get a raise or you all don't.

    Advice to Management

    If the employees aren't getting raises than you can't keep giving them more responsibilities. It will eventually push them out the door

    Pros

    The campus is beautiful, the classes small, and you cultivate great relationships with the faculty. The Franciscan Values are incorporated throughout your four years at school.

    Cons

    It is a lot of money for a lack of added benefits. The school does not have its act together which is a shame because it has great potential to be a leading school.
