University Benefits Coordinator (Former Employee) – New York, NY – July 12, 2018
It was a nice City/State job however, many of the mangers were micro-managers and knew nothing about the job that the each employee they monitored did, nor did they take an interest in learning. Each colllege acts like its own entity, when they are all uner the City University
4 days off 5/28-9/6 summer Fridays, all holidays, weekends, etc.
management, each school thinks they are their own entity
Adjunct Lecturer (Former Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – June 9, 2018
I had to deal with student cheating, harassment, verbal abuse on a $70 per hour salary and no more than 9 hours per week as my contract stated. My side of the story never mattered Chairmen didn't solve any problems, just cashed in $150K+ . Lots of plagiarism among professors that copy my materials and books and give it to others. No leadership. At John Jay College the HR deactivated my employee account upon getting the job for 1.5 months. A John Jay I got no IT support, the classroom had open windows exposed to construction dust and no air conditioner. At John Jay the classroom was overcrowded with 29 students per 24 seats/PC room, no up-t0-date compilers, Nobody cared and I had to solve these problems for $70 per hour. At Medgar Evers College an observer would want me to sign blank evaluations while he will give them cooked after 6 months to the chair. At Medgar Evers I was threatened by students that if I don't give them A's I will not work there anymore. At Medgar Evers College they erased my Blackboard account of all courses to demote me At NYCCT they still didn't pay me all the raised wages from a year ago and there's no one to talk to to solve any problems
Consultant (Former Employee) – Kingsborough Community College, Brooklyn, NY – May 31, 2018
The job required me to travel from Stamford, CT to Brooklyn, NY. once a week. My daughter was an infant at the time and I traveled with her. The commute back and forth took me more than 5 hours due to traffic. It wasn't enjoyable, but that was my decision. My supervisor (Director) was awesome and I still was able to review foreign academic credentials.
Enrollment Management Assistant (Current Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – May 23, 2018
Fast paced, challenging work environment. Always a learning process, regardless of years working there is always room for an improvement and gathering more knowledge. Everyday work is not just processing and evaluating high school and college transcripts, it is all about helping students to get in to colleges.

Adjunct Lecturer (Former Employee) – Bayside, NY – April 9, 2018
I enjoyed my experience teaching in the Massage Therapy program and the positive interactions i had with the students. The program coordinator is an exceptional leader and wonderful to work with. This program has exceptional teachers and the students get a very good entry level introduction to the profession of massage.
Faculty (Current Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – February 27, 2018
The focus is getting more and more grant money and having everything driven by data. This compromises the work programs do with students and greatly compromises the working culture and staff satisfaction.
Paralegal (Current Employee) – New York State – February 26, 2018
The work environment is very relaxed, I enjoy working alone without constant supervision. My job requires a lot of travel time to different locations which can be quite a hassle. The hardest part of the job is learning so many new information everyday, I wish I had more training before I was thrown in the field. However, I am a hands on learner so with more experience I was able to manage. The attorney I worked with are very knowledgeable and always available to answer my questions or concerns. The most rewarding part of the job is the reaction and result of those people who I've helped obtaining citizenship or helping them bring their family together.
