Pros

One of the highest stipends for graduate students in the country and cutting edge research centers and cores. Faculty are extremely intelligent and innovative with regard to the research projects that you are able to participate in. Additionally, there is a good amount of collaboration and fluidity between departments so that you can pretty much work on what interests you ( to some extent). One of the most ethnically diverse bio-medical graduate programs in the country.

Cons

Low pay compared to cost of living (but manageable) and time off ( sick leave, maternity leave, vacation time, etc. ) is sometimes left up to the sole discretion of the principle investigator with whom you work which can be difficult to negotiate if they are unwilling to give you time off that you need.

Advice to Management

Better work life balance and mentorship training for (some) principle investigators.

    Pros

    Great hours, good pay, good benefits. I was actually busy only half of the time, so I had time to do school work during work.

    Cons

    Non-transparent, non-collaborative environment. Yelling and bullying employees is totally accepted. Very arrogant place. Communication with management is poor. Many people are motivated only by their tuition benefits or the vesting of their retirement benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees better and get rid of the bullies. Do not promote people without management training. Make sure information flows to everyone.


  2. Good culture but bad for long-term research staff

    Pros

    People are nice. Good benefits such as 22 vacation days and 403K, but you don't get paid enough to go on a vacation or put any money into the retirement account if you are a researcher. For IT and others, during the 12 years I spent at NYU, I've seen people go elsewhere and come back again saying that NYU was much better working environment.

    Cons

    Not really the insituttion's fault. But if you are a research staffer that gets paid from an NIH grant, you don't get paid enough for the cost of living. It's alright for those who are just starting out and want the name of the well known instiatuion on their resumes, but unless you get a faculty position, this is not a place to stay for a long time. Even though those in research get paid very little, since it is in NYC, the institution seems to have no shortage of people who want to come and work from outside the country, therefore, no incentive to do anything about it either.

    Advice to Management

    Not sure what they can do about it unless the NIH policy changes.
