Great University, I don't like the location
Analyst (Former Employee) – Stony Brook, NY – April 23, 2018
Stony Brook is great. Some people think Long Island is great--I am just not one of those people.
The benefits are good, university atmosphere is nice, just don't expect to live near the university if you are an early-mid career professional. The cost of living is prohibitive of enjoying your free time, as nearly all your funds are eaten up in rent, utilities, insurance, and transportation costs.
