    I have been working at Finger Lakes Community College full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The benefits and not much else.

    Cons

    Disappointing, I have been here 4 years, thought the new president will a positive change. Not at all. I agree with a previous post, if the tax payers only know how their money is spent.

    Advice to Management

    So sad...you are dieing a slow death.

    I worked at Finger Lakes Community College part-time

    Pros

    Great job, I was able to work and also work on homework at the same time.

    Cons

    Not all your co-workers had the same work ethic.

    Advice to Management

    Explain what team work ethic is, and it's importance for harmony in the office.

    Pros

    Great salary and benefits. Opportunities for growth

    Cons

    Some offices are very isolated from rest of the campus so there are very limited opportunities to meet faculty and other staff. There is not much diversity amongst faculty and staff.

    I worked at Finger Lakes Community College full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    One thing I have to give credit for is benefits, they really are top notch for full time people.

    Cons

    Everything else. This should be shut down. You walk into this place and are transported back to the 1990s with the way everything is done there. Systems are grossly outdated, paper forms are still the norm, IT is a bad joke. They are constantly complaining about declining enrollment every semester, yet their response is to hire more worthless people who accomplish nothing. This place has below industry pay, and everyone is unionized, meaning bad employees (and there are a lot of them) never get canned for being incompetent. Most if not all good employees leave, making the place slowly getting worse and worse. They hired a new president a year ago or so (Nye), and he was just a complete waste, talked a good game though. So glad I got out of here. If Ontario county taxpayers saw how poorly their money was being spent, there would be a revolt

    Advice to Management

    Fire yourselves, seriously. You have no idea what you are doing, and this college is run like a bad joke.

    I worked at Finger Lakes Community College part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This was a good opportunity for me as a student to get a taste of what office work was like. I was given enough responsibilities to feel needed and to feel like a contributing part of the office. I was not given so much responsibility that I felt overwhelmed by what was expected of me. I would recommend working in the Student Accounts office for any student at FLCC who wants work place experience.

    Cons

    It can become a little stale at times. Very tedious work. You will have to be social with the other employees in the office if you want to enjoy your time working there.

    Advice to Management

    It has been a couple years since I've worked at FLCC, so any advice I can give will be slightly dated. But I would advise to continue making the student workers or work studies feel like contributing members of the office.
