    I worked at Touro College full-time

    Pros

    Diversity and multicultural environment. Adherence to legal, curriculum require-
    ments as well as compliance/implementation of policies in the management of
    the school.

    Cons

    Teaching assignments are sometimes given in different boroughs which may
    require long travel times. Textbooks for faculty members have gotten quite
    difficult to get so that getting a copy may mean paying from one's own pocket.

    Advice to Management

    Review and improve the systems in place-open-button.jpgI. place to allow for better communicatio

    Review and improve the systems in place for better communications, vertical and
    horizontal, more transparency, inclusiveness, more activities for staff, faculty
    and management to help students improve and hone their skills to appropriately
    arm them to meet the challenges of the job market.

    Pros

    It's definitely a good start for anyone who is interested in internal audit. I got real opportunities to participate in multiple audit projects and learn about the whole audit process. The job was challenging but I learned a lot by working with my supervisor and other staff. The "lunch and learn" session on every other week was great and I got systematic training through this session.

    Cons

    The job is unpaid for most interns and the supervisor has got high standards for your work.
