Typical residence life with corporate aspects.
Quad Assistant/Graduate Assistant (Former Employee) –  Stony Brook N.Y.February 4, 2014
If you do not have the stomach for residence life or are new to the field, leave this place alone. Too many free spirits and thinkers, who are all professional students who are hiding from the real world. 30 year old RA's.

SBU is a great place to work. The people and general environment are super special. It is a joy to come to work.
Office Assistant, Communications Department (Current Employee) –  Administration Building, Suite 144May 18, 2018
A typical day at work varies from moment to moment. It's fast paced and there is a lot to learn computer-wise. Today is graduation day for many students and everywhere there is something exciting going on. Patience is the keyword for every day. Management is open and available to all. The hardest part of the job is when there is a periodic slowing of projects as the next assignment comes along. And, as I've said, the people and environment are definitely the most enjoyable part of the job as well as the excitement of business while trying to work for the State.
Pros
benefits and pay
Cons
no decent cafeteria

Great place, low pay for PhD students
Teaching Assistant (Current Employee) –  Stony Brook, NYMay 14, 2018
PhD students receive a very low stipend that does not support the cost of living on Long Island. The stipend is supported through TA lines and the amount of work that has to go into the TA responsibilities and the pay is not an equal trade-off.
