The City College is a great place to sharpen customer service skills, as well as other administrative skills. It can sometimes be fast paced but overall the work environment is pretty comfortable and manageable. My coworkers were great and very helpful.

LIBRARY ADMINISTRATIVE ASSISTANT (Current Employee) – New York, NY – October 11, 2015
City Colleges' best asset is its job security. You are represented by unions and if not a union you have reps there that protect and preserve your standing in the company. The tuition assistance is its greatest benefit. Full tuition accept books.

Adjunct Lecturer (Current Employee) – New York, NY – July 19, 2015
Great academic environment, students willing to learn and give a fair amount of effort. I am comparing to other, smaller colleges and community colleges that I taught at before. I know that this might sound stupid to even mention, but I feel that it is nice that department does not expect you to pass students just so that they can have sufficient enrollment for advanced courses next semester, yes this does happen at many other colleges. Also, very nice coworkers, culture and fair management. The hardest part of the job is the end of each semester because I have no control over how many classes I teach on the next one, if any.
Great environment and great people, at least in my department.
Not such a secure position if you are part-time lecturer
TA (Former Employee) – New York, NY – April 5, 2015
The job was fair, I learned how to build a robot and I had very nice coworkers. The most enjoyable part of the job was to spend time with high school student that are very smart and I learn a lot from them.
I learned basic lab skills mostly handling animals for neuropharmacological protocols.
Research Scientist/Master's Student (Former Employee) – New York, NY – March 24, 2015
I worked with animals as a masters student for the Acoustic Startle Response protocol. This involved the ip injection of cocaine and caffeine in rats to test a paradigm of the effects of these drugs in inducing the symptoms of schizophrenia (cocaine) and possible neuroprotective effects of caffeine.I was also trained in this lab in the manufacture of the BRODERICK Probe which is a novel microsensor for detecting the release of neurochemicals in real time. The Acoustic Startle Response data was presented at SFN 2012. Overall I found this a positive laboratory experience, I became familiar with IACUC protocol and statistical analysis with PRISM software as well. I hope to join a neuroscience lab where I can study physiology and pharmacology in more depth.
Campus Peace Officer Level III (Sergeant) (Current Employee) – New York, NY – March 20, 2015
Working in academic environment allows you to interact with people of various categories. The college is located in the heart of the community and next to public park which makes security issue a more challenging one. On the average it affords me good opportunity to learn and advance myself.
Film History Teacher Assistant (Former Employee) – New York, NY – March 1, 2015
There are very few things in this world that are more gratifying than teaching. When a student leaves your class or a one on one session with a better understanding and a deeper knowledge than what he had previously, you can truly claim to have had a positive impact on another human being. In addition, through teaching one puts himself in an optimal position for learning more. As a teacher you have to know what your teaching, and this forces you to dig deeper and gain more confidence in your subject matter, and you always learn from your students, as their perspective will always be fresh and unbiased compared with yours.
