Good place to work.
BMCC staff is friendly and always helpful. My immediate supervisor is always available and supports my efforts greatly. The atmosphere is conducive to learning and teaching.

Absolutely Amazing
Working in an Animation internship at Hostos Community College was an enjoyable and eye-opening experience. I learned a lot about the Animation industry and how to properly work with peers.

negative zero across the board
The managers are overpaid to have other people do their work for them. If you are a family member, friend to one of the employees, wiling to kiss butt, snitch, be dishonest or willing to sleep to the top you are a prefect fit. The people in Human Resources are liars and thieves. The people who actually work are treated worse than slaves.

Worst experience ever
I would never recommend anyone to work at City College of New York they love to hire anyone with bad rap sheets or served time in jail which are the supervisors. They have no respect for workers. You pay union dues and they don’t even have your back. As a custodian I worked as a slave given no respect by supervisors plus co workers are not to be trusted they are all rats

made a difference for the 2 grant years I was contracted
Interfaced with up to 15-20 students daily through one-on-one counseling sessions, online/email conversations and workshops. Successful at getting 8 NYCI students into the America Needs You initiative of the 100 maximum students allowed from CUNY. I was encourage to make suggestions on improving student career counseling services

great people
I am very happy with the CUNY system as a whole and hope more people join - I think employee benefits are great, and they are very supportive of staff and their varying needs over the course of one's life. I am very appreciative of the experience I had working there.

Poor management and unfair treatment of the mentally ill
The culture is so toxic that managers are lying and manipulating coworkers on a daily basis. Sadly Management is so corrupted by outdated strategies that they are firing talented employees and keeping a lot of incompetent employees who become managers and running this organization in the wrong direction.

Best Criminal Justice Program in the Nation
Teaching at John Jay College is a very rewarding experience. The school attract students from different parts of the world with a keen interest in public service and who have heard of the reputation of the school's criminal justice program in the United States.

It's a big place
I really have nothing to say. It payed decent for the area. The hardest part was the size of the area meaning you had to be all over the place. The hardest part was that my manager could be a bit unreasonable sometimes.

Good job for a Full time College student who desires extra pocket change
I had a pleasant experience overall. I met a lot of people on campus from the staff to the students. My hours for the semester were solely based on my availability as well as classes that were available. I was paid based on the amount and length on the amount which wasn't a lot.. I couldn't pay rent with my checks, but I was blessed to have some pocket change throughout the semesters.

Great benefits, work environment needs a lot of improvement.
Your day: Come in, mise en place, open the department/office for the day, field questions from professors, students, parents, and other office folk. At lunch, leave the office. Do not stay in the office for your own sake. Leave promptly at the agreed upon time, otherwise everyone will try to make you stay late to do extra. Most of the work is done on a computer and manually filing papers. Great benefits, work environment needs a lot of improvement.

Scheduling that accommodates my needs.
The most enjoyable part of the job is interfacing with the students, and advancing their knowledge and career aspirations. The company restricts the number of courses that can be taught by an Adjuct. This is a disadvantage to the University and to the Adjunct.
