    Not a bad place for someone who values stability over growth.

    I worked at New York City Department of Education full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Positions are relatively stable and flexible. The hours are great for someone who has a family to care for or goes to school in the evenings.

    Cons

    Mentality of most workers here is old school. There's a high value placed on seniority and innovation and new ideas are shunned upon by most due to their fear of one taking over their jobs. Its unfortunate that Union workers only care about putting in their hours regardless of whether they are adding value or not.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at New York City Department of Education.

    Interview Details

    Two (2) phone interviews with general HR style questions and one (1) in-person onsite interview. The phone interviews where more a check on my background and current role. They wanted to be sure I had experience with massive amounts of data. The in-person interview was a panel style meeting and the employees where every observant and attentive. They let you talk and they listen. Some have education background so they were good listeners.

    Negotiation Details
    When offered a lower position I asked what qualities define the higher position. After some consideration and pressure with similar questions I was finally offered the more senior role.
