    I have been working at Syracuse University full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits to include affordable medical/dental, as well as ample vacation, personal, and sick time off. Depending on the job there might be a flexible schedule, opportunities to work from home when needed, and the ability to move up or into new roles within the university, easily.

    Cons

    Parking isn't the best and you have to pay for it. It's academia so there are a lot of people who might look down on you. If you work with students, the parents can be difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Take leadership and professional development seriously - don't believe you are above learning more or how to be a better leader.

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

    Pros

    Awesome management! Very fun environment to work in and the patients are very easy going and laid back. The office manager is very helpful if you have any questions . The dental assistant is extremely helpful with set up and tear down, helping with cleaning rooms and setting up new trays.

    Cons

    There are not very many downsides to working there. The equipment could be updated to provide easier use of hygiene instrumentation. More office meetings with the entire staff more often would be helpful to hear information from the entire team. That way we could improve office morale by understanding each others roles.

    I have been working at Syracuse University full-time

    Pros

    Good faculty and commitment to research by the academic faculty and staff.

    Parking is insane, walking to parking lots in winter is not pedestrian friendly, over-emphasis of athletics.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your human resources and academic staff.
