Great Benefits, Stagnant Salaries
Administrative Aide II (Current Employee) – New York, NY – September 6, 2018
I love working with/helping the students. It's too bad admin/clerical staff salaries don't keep pace with New York City rents.
That said, the continuing education opportunities are terrific. Tuition remission allowed me to earn my master's degree, as well as taking non-credit classes in a variety of subjects.
Every office and department has its own culture and pace. In my department, the culture was not the best, but it also wasn't the worst. It's more of a morale problem because staff are overworked.
Management also varies across the University. My department's does its best to support staff and provide as many professional opportunities as possible.
