Interesting work but poor scheduling and management
Standardized Patient (Former Employee) – Jonesboro, AR – October 10, 2018
I loved the kind of work we were doing. It was like acting, only no huge audience and you learn about the human body. I was very excited about it. It became clear very quickly how mismanaged the place was though. There were 2 bosses and neither in coordination with the other. For every meeting or training session, there were 5 messages saying different times to be there. The management was very hard on the standardized patients, considering there was no training in acting. It was very stressful knowing with any slip up, you'd be scolded. Finally after a couple months of sporadic work, I had to take leave for a medical condition. When I wanted to return to work, was told that the semester was almost over and there wouldn't be work till the fall. Come fall, I get a group message about turning in time sheets. I messaged my boss to inquire on whether we would be working again. The only response I got was to be deleted from the group forum. Overall I would describe them as unprofessional.
Business (Former Employee) – New York, NY – October 8, 2018
Beautiful campus but poor management. This is not a great place to work and it is not a good place for students. There are many people who have their own personal agendas and do not have the best interest of the school or the students in their work. As such, there is little teamwork and an unpleasant atmosphere. You want to be on a winning team, not on a dysfunctional team.
Part-Time (Former Employee) – Jonesboro, AR – September 13, 2018
Amazing place to work! My manager was always very kind to my co-workers and myself and treated us with the upmost respect. The environment of the company is just as great. The faculty and staff are extremely kind. If they had a full-time position available I would take it immediately.
Useful only as a career "springboard" and/or to pay bills.
Adjunct Assistant Professor (Former Employee) – Old Westbury, NY – September 7, 2018
I was an Adjunct Assistant Professor of chemistry at NYIT / Old Westbury for twenty consecutive years until my retirement in June 2016. Too many in the NYIT community are mesmerized with hackneyed concepts such as "globalization", "diversity", and "Title IX compliance". Your potential issues as an employee? Suppose you are a Caucasian male, either Christian or Jewish, who believes in God and the free-market. Also, you are politically conservative, and are the descendant of a family that first arrived in the United States in the distant past. If the description above fits you and you are seriously considering accepting employment at NYIT, please do so with extreme circumspection. That's because if you do eventually work for NYIT and have this personal background, you may find that through no fault of your own, you have become "marginalized" and possibly even considered to be a "persona non grata".
Provides "potboiler" work to pay your bills.
Seldom promotes dedicated "insiders", Almost all new top positions go to "outsider saviours".
Assistant Dean and Director of Student Life (Current Employee) – New York, NY – August 5, 2018

Student Ambassador (Current Employee) – New York, NY – June 19, 2018
A typical day at the work place consists of assisting peers with appointments and also assisting advisors with any technical needs. i have learned great management and organizational skills at this job.
Resident Assistant (Current Employee) – New York, NY – May 30, 2018
Being a Resident Assistant is difficult. Free room and board are awesome. But balancing school and the responsibility is difficult. Overall, the RA position was lead by a strong director and assistant director. However, I have held other positions in NYIT. New positions are difficult because there was an unstable chain of command.
Department Supervisor - Campus Dining (Former Employee) – Long Island, NY – May 28, 2018
The worst place I have ever worked at!!!! I would not recommend at all. Your over worked and under appreciated. They try to offer occasional get togethers for management but they make it impossible for all employees to go.

Student Clinician (Former Employee) – New York, NY – April 19, 2018
Working with kids that suffer from mental and physical disabilities helped my communication skills. The hardest part of working here was having the patience to handle how slowly some of patients improved. This helped me learn how to be more proactive and stay disciplined to patient regimens.
