Hofstra is a great institution in higher education. Well managed, great culture. Have learned a lot from my boss as he is an excellent Chief Development Officer. Most enjoyable part is working with our Donors, understanding their philanthropic objectives and goals and helping them attain these goals. Also great to work with our alumni, parents, friends and our student body who wish to see Hofstra further grow and develop.
Fun place to work with great benefits, but low salary, understaffed and quick turnover of employees
Assistant Director (Former Employee) – Uniondale, NY – March 12, 2018
Hofstra is a beautiful campus and I always felt very welcome. It felt like there was also a real sense of a community. Unfortunately, pay is very low (especially compared to other schools) and there isn't much room for mobility. My office, in particular, was always understaffed and there was always quick turnover. Due to this, most people cannot be very knowledgeable in their area and cannot fully train another person.
It was a very stressful/fast-paced environment and I had to do a lot of extra work to make up for vacant job positions. Management in my office was not good. Benefits are good (I took advantage of tuition remission) and vacation is great (22 days), but I was never allowed to take a full week off for trips due to the constant need for more administrators.
Vacation time, sense of community, lovely campus
Low pay, understaffed, fast turnover of administrators
Associate Adjunct Professor (Current Employee) – Hempstead, NY – March 2, 2018
I am an adjunct at Hofstra University. I love my job, but need more income, since I am part time. Looking for summer work now. My colleagues are bright and strive toward student excellence. The Drama and Dance Department is progressive and focused.
Undergraduate Assistant (Former Employee) – Hempstead, NY – January 18, 2018
Had awesome bosses. With its close proximity to New York City and annual sponsorship of some 500 cultural events, Hofstra University is a happening place. The private, nonsectarian four-year university has an annual enrollment of some 11,450 full- and part-time students

So much room for advancement at Hofstra University. It also allows you to learn different things among the different departments at the university. The great thing for full timers is the tuition reimbursement.
Research Assistant (Former Employee) – Hempstead, NY – November 9, 2017
I worked with two doctoral students who were completing their dissertations. I learned how to code behavior as well as enter data in to SPSS. My time here doing research was intersting and helped me learn about how research is conducted.
