    Pros

    The school has many opportunities for student employment, and if you really seek all of them out, you can find a great one. Mant of the jobs have decent/average pay, but if you're really passionate, you can find great jobs as well.

    Cons

    A feeling I got from some of the other workers is that they're not quite interested or devoted to their jobs.

    I worked at Syracuse University full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Salary not bad, but the hours were so great, the pay figured low. My staff was great. Early manager was fantastic. I felt appreciated in the early years and was very loyal.

    Cons

    Later manager did not treat me the same as the males. When I expressed my concerns, a campaign was started to fizzle me out. No real reason given. I feel it was due to me being a whistle blower and also male vs female inequality.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees concerns, alot of great people were laid off along with me for no good reason and some big slackers were kept.

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

    Pros

    Power five school with great teams and coaching staff. Beautiful campus and surroundings. Good night life and plenty of things to do outside Athletics. Seem like a very bright future for the athletics side with facilities.

    Cons

    Small department with limited staff. Very little recognition and from other departments inside the athletic department. Have to help your self because no one will help you in your career.

    Advice to Management

    recognize the "little" people in the department and help retain good people by doing the right thing.
