    I have been working at Suffolk County Community College (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good work environment. Everyone willing to work together towards common goal

    Cons

    Job advancement is very difficult. Part time work is easier to come by than full time-probably due to health benefits. Mandatory 2-week furlough for College Aides makes it tough to handle the work load when an office is short staffed.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more full-time workers and reduce the overall college aide positions. It would give the departments more consistency since you would have the same people working everyday and not only 15 or 17 hours a week.

    I have been working at Suffolk County Community College part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Very nice group of people to work with. Suffolk hires some of the best professionals and cares about the student body.

    Cons

    Going from part time to full time can be rough. Once your in a position that seems to be the position that you stay in unless you leave and come back.

    Advice to Management

    Look for talent already existing within your organization and give people a chance to excel. Other than that - great job!

    I have been working at Suffolk County Community College (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I'm quite happy with my current chairpersons and previous ones. The college at the Grant Campus is enjoyable and professional. At times, there are a few persons that aren't nice but that's everywhere. I do recommend SCCC to be a good university to work for. Besides following the policies and procedures you still have academic/teaching freedom, it's an institution worth your time and effort.

    Cons

    Due to policy, the road to full time teaching is a challenge.

    Pros

    It's a great school to be a part of and the other faculty are a pleasure to be around. The IT dept. is quick to respond to resolve any issues.

    Cons

    It can be a challenge to keep students engaged and motivated throughout the semester. Some majors are only offered at a specific campus.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. There is a lot of academic freedom,
