    Pros

    Liberal new course flexibility, great student body, most classrooms somewhat modern to modern, eagerness of lower level staff to fulfill on tasks, career positive association, location, familiarity.

    Cons

    Management hierarchy is clumsy at its best, wholly counter productive most of the time, and downright stupid too often. Scheduling of classes ignores major holidays, room assignments are done using paper and telephones (leading to embarrassing double & triple bookings), many potential students cannot enroll due to problems with servers and lack of a back-up system.

    Advice to Management

    Current management works in a vacuum ignoring student needs and blaming their underlings for repeated problems, who are then replaced too often.


  2. Decent working environment, but the pay and benefits are low compared to other universities

    Pros

    Great students, some great faculty members, near lots of public transportation.

    Cons

    Pay and benefits are much lower than other universities for which I've worked. I've heard it's very hard to get on the tenure track. Also....NYU is taking over the east village and doesn't care who they displace in the process. It was hard to reconcile my dislike of this aggressive expansion and my enjoyment of teaching there.

    Advice to Management

    Do more and think more about the community who lives/work around NYU.
