Relaxed, productive, and work oriented office.
Graduate Assistant (Current Employee), Madison, NJApril 24, 2013
Pros: great way to earn your masters.
Cons: does not always use the most efficient processes.
Depending on the position for the Graduate Assistantship a student worker dealt with research projects, professor's assignments, student advising, and administrative work. Working in the Business department I worked with department chairs, secretaries, and other graduate assistants to complete research projects and professor's assignments. This is an environment that challenges your intellect, your technological skills, and your ability to work as a team.

Ensuring the saftey of Staff, Faculty, Students and Visitors
Public Safety Officer (Current Employee), Teaneck, NJJanuary 2, 2013
Pros: great people to work with, overtime available, work with the local police departments
Cons: we do not have the authority to enforce the law which could help protect people on the campus.
Being a Public Safety Officer at Fairleigh Dickinson University is a great place to work. Officers are responsible for the safety of everyone on campus at all times. While working on the campus, officers learn how to communicate with people on a professional level and assist people when they are in need. Working with local Police Departments has been a great experience and helps the officers get ready for the next step in law enforcement. The job as a public safety officer is a great stepping stone for those interested in pursuing a job in the field of criminal justice.

Opportunities are nonexistent
Director of Financial Aid (Former Employee), Teaneck, NJDecember 29, 2012
Institution caters to quantity over quality. Focuses on appeasing those who deliver many years of less than satisfactory service to its students. Those who bring innovative change are not accepted and eventually dismissed.

Don't work in the Kron building. Management is the worst.
Kron Building (Former Employee), Teaneck, NJOctober 22, 2012
Cons: hr unprofessional, managment is terrible.
Everyone there is over worked, underpaid, stressed out. You work long hours with no thanks or compensation.Terrible management!! FDU does NOT want to change its ways. The University is stuck in the 80's. Very antiquated way of doing things. HR very unprofessional. A VERY stressful work environment. Take heed!!!

You were probably a fairly new hire who wanted to bring positive change. People like that will not thrive in this environment!

This is ALSO the case the Kron building on the Teaneck campus. Nothing but bulllying by the management. Hiring friends. Late hours no compensation, not even a thanks. Rulles changing everyday. Management having no clue how to do basic 101 job duties. HR unprofessionalism. The list goes on and on and on. It's a job yes, but it's mental and emotional abuse that I refuse to deal with anymore.

Terrible Facilities Mgt.
Shift Engineer (Former Employee), Hackensack, NJApril 11, 2012
The facilities manager was a ridiculous tyrant. Abusive to most eployees, and discriminatory favoritism to a few. A terrible place to work. I couldn`t get away from there fast enough.

Good Learning Experience
Resident Director (Former Employee), Madison, NJFebruary 21, 2012
Pros: room was part of compensation
Cons: there was no clear line between clocking in or out
My particular area, Residence Life, was very fast paced sometimes and slow others. But it took a lot of organization to get a grasp on the work. My favorite people to work with were those who worked directly with me, whether I was managing them or they managed me.
