Terrible Management, Horrible Pay, No Reason to Stay
Anonymous (Current Employee) – Old Westbury, NY – February 2, 2017
I thought working for a higher education institution would be a great learning experience with room to grow and a legitimate place to work for. Unfortunately I was COMPLETELY wrong! Currently looking for a better job
-Management is very inexperienced -No room to advance and climb up the "ladder of success" -Keep you inside of a box and there is no room for improvement or growth -Forward thinking is frowned upon -Was told when I was trying to work on contingency plans that "we'll just deal with it when a problem comes" instead of trying to avoid any problems in the first place -Management afraid to try new things -Management constantly asks for new ideas/concepts and nothing changes -Learned very quickly that there was no point in speaking up, anyone who speaks their mind gets shut down quickly and basically has an X on their back -Fellow employees were written up for crazy things that made no sense and would never be on a "write up" anywhere else -Employees have left for less money just to get away from this place
Mediocre health benefits for full-time staff, most weekends off
Terrible management, no room for advancement/raises, fake sense of being a "team, managers are passive aggressive and bipolar, "rules" depend on how management feels in that moment at that time

Teachers are very involved and give a ton of their own prior work experiences as real life examples. Their work is also not overwhelming util finals when you realize there's so much more you wish you had done on your own.

Management does not care about employees, There is very little room to advance. Salaries are very low. Human Resources does not protect employees. The University really does not care about the students.

Productive Workplace with an exceptional environment
Student Ambassador (Current Employee) – New York, NY – July 7, 2016
A typical workday consists of giving campus tours, uploading tours onto appointment quest, updated peoplesoft with prospective student. Also, what I learned is that many students come in with the idea of doing on certain major but end up deciding on some other major. My co-workers are an amazing group and were always there if I needed anything at all. They assisted me with the workload and also gave me training.

Excellent Student Position, Challenging Engineering Work
Research Assistant (Former Employee) – Old Westbury, NY – January 12, 2016
The responsibilities executed in this position were all in support of an optics and fluid mechanics experiment. The overall goal of the project was to take holographic images of the mid-air collision of two ink droplets after being fired from two inkjet print heads.
It is an ongoing project, the nature of which posed many interesting and challenging engineering problems during the period in which I was involved. Due to the limited availability of information regarding the behavior of the ink droplets while taking trajectories they were not intended to take, great difficulties were encountered when attempting to determine their exact position at any given instant in time. However, knowledge of their exact position as a function of time was critical in timing the optical apparatus used to take the holographic images.
This problem of figuring out how to pinpoint the ink droplets, and time the laser and shutter accordingly, led to the design of various optical positioners which could be fine tuned/adjusted. This was the part of the job which I enjoyed the most, as it required much problem-solving through assembly design, machining and 3-D printing.
The "dimension-sensitive" nature of the project also provided valuable insight into how a mechanical system (particularly one involving optics) can react drastically to the most minute dimensional changes.
I made enough money to pay my bills over the summer, and learned a lot.
