Alot of work. Supervisor in Stewardship is controlling.
Communications Specialist - Acknowledgment Program (Former Employee), Troy, NYAugust 29, 2012
Pros: work on university campus.
Cons: to much bureacratic nonsense and backstabbing of personnel.
Typical day was a lot of work and no recognition. Supervisor who does stewardship was very controlling and vindictive. What I learned with this job is to keep working hard no matter what people say. Eventually opportunties will come your way.
