If you plan to have a life, don't work in the Finance Department.
SENIOR STAFF ACCOUNTANT/SUPERVISOR (Former Employee), Teaneck, NJApril 6, 2014
Pros: coworkers
Cons: too many hours
Management requires employees to work ridiculous hours and grudgingly allows workers to take vacation days they are entitled to. This was by far the most difficult part of the job. There was no Job/Life balance.

Most enjoyable part of the job were coworkers.

The best work experience one could have
Administrative/ Program Assistant (Former Employee), Teaneck, NJJanuary 9, 2014
The best employer offering excellent benefits/compensation package. Company cares for employees and the majority are there long term. Advancement opportunities abound.

I regret having to leave this employer many years ago when I moved out of town and became a full time homemaker/ stay-at-home mom,and have nothing but fond memories. If I move back to – more... Northern New Jersey in the future, I will try to reestablish employment at FDU. – less

Pros: great people to work with, overtime available, work with the local police departments

Being a Public Safety Officer at Fairleigh Dickinson University is a great place to work. Officers are responsible for the safety of everyone on campus at all times. While working on the campus, officers learn how to communicate with people on a professional level and assist people when they are in need. Working with local Police Departments has been – more... a great experience and helps the officers get ready for the next step in law enforcement.

Opportunities are nonexistent
Director of Financial Aid (Former Employee), Teaneck, NJDecember 29, 2012
Institution caters to quantity over quality. Focuses on appeasing those who deliver many years of less than satisfactory service to its students. Those who bring innovative change are not accepted and eventually dismissed.

Don't work in the Kron building. Management is the worst.
Kron Building (Former Employee), Teaneck, NJOctober 22, 2012
Cons: hr unprofessional, managment is terrible.
Everyone there is over worked, underpaid, stressed out. You work long hours with no thanks or compensation.Terrible management!! FDU does NOT want to change its ways. The University is stuck in the 80's. Very antiquated way of doing things. HR very unprofessional. A VERY stressful work environment. Take heed!!!

Winnie – December 29, 2012

You were probably a fairly new hire who wanted to bring positive change. People like that will not thrive in this environment!

Pros: it's a job.

- Lazy, incompetent boss(es)
- Bitter co-workers
- Bosses hiring & promoting their buddies

Whyy – October 22, 2012

This is ALSO the case the Kron building on the Teaneck campus. Nothing but bulllying by the management. Hiring friends. Late hours no compensation, not even a thanks. Rulles changing everyday. Management having no clue how to do basic 101 job duties. HR unprofessionalism. The list goes on and on and on. It's a job yes, but it's mental and emotional abuse that I refuse to deal with anymore.
