Teaching Assistant (Former Employee) – New York, NY – August 31, 2018
Working as a teaching assistant was low paid and gave few hours of work. The job was never going to be permanent but there was no attempt to help me get a job in my field when I had finished my doctorate. There were no connections, recommendations, networking events or suggestions from professors. The career office was pathetic and found me nothing, I ended up working as a substitute teacher instead of continuing in the college teaching area, where I had previously worked overseas before coming to Teachers College.
Executive Director of External Affairs (Former Employee) – New York City, NY – June 25, 2018
The mornings were filled with spending time fielding telephone calls from the media. I was able to build a good relationship with the press and so I fielded many questions and set interviews for the president and faculty.
I learned a great deal how to promote the college as well as provide the right hooks for a story.
Our weekly executive meetings were both filled with work and enjoyable and that was because the president was a hard working but also a man with a sparkling personality.
The hardest part of her job was keeping lines of communication open with the rest of the members of the executive committee. There were jealousies that prevented good communication.
Am exciting college to work for with a progressive leadership
An executive committee that had difficulty getting along
Lecturer (Former Employee) – New York, NY – June 15, 2018
Teachers college is an excellent college. I received my Ed D and worked as a lecturer until I graduated. I learned how to write with the mentorship of the chair of the Department, for which I am grateful
Clinical Psychology Graduate Student (Former Employee) – New York, NY – May 1, 2018
Honestly, the people at your job seem to forget the you're also a student. I used to work t the bursar's office and whenever I was doing schoolwork on school day, the supervisor would get annoyed. I was let go through phone call during the christmas holidays. They called me t 11pm. If this not professional, then I don't know what is.
Adjunct Instructor (Part-time) (Former Employee) – New York, NY – March 28, 2018
This was a great experience. There are so many departments that things get convoluted and easily disorganized or lost in the system so it is definitely helpful to make friends and network so people can help you navigate it.
Fast-paced development culture but with room for growth
Development & External Affairs Project Coordinator (Former Employee) – New York, NY – June 25, 2017
Development and fundraising is a tough field and TC certainly is no exception. The office has a lot of room for improvement, especially when it comes to disseminating work appropriately, but if you're fortunate to have understanding and competent supervisors who are passionate about education, you'll learn a great deal and survive.
Room for growth overtime, networking opportunities, high-end events to work and attend
The culture doesn't support work-life balance, Balance of work and power are off
Wonderful academic/research work with great learning opportunity
Senior Research Assistant (Current Employee) – New York, NY – May 2, 2017
I worked at the Center for Benefit-Cost Studies of Education at Teachers College, Columbia University. It is a wonderful place for graduate students and research fellows. Research projects are diverse and pioneering, working culture encourages collaboration and inspires thinking of my own research area.
