I worked at NYU (New York University) full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Taking classes for free or a discount is a great benefit. Health insurance was very good as well. Work hours are about as low as modern day allows.

Cons

Worked in the technology department. Both the business side and our own team were very slow to adapt. Projects took forever to complete. Culture is mixed. There were some laid-back types who were there probably due to the job being less demanding, but many people are very hierarchical and like to 'pull rank.'

    Pros

    Great people, flexible hours, and accessible location for NYU students.

    Cons

    Less than great management and weird compensation schedule.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees and get rid of policy for policy's sake. Also let students do homework at the desk.

    I have been working at NYU (New York University) part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    You can make good connections with important people of the creative writing community. You get to teach undergrads and if you get someone to observe you teach they will write you a letter of recommendation. You can make your own syllabus and create a reading list/packet. There is no required reading.

    Cons

    The pay is not terrific and NYU is expensive. The students are spoiled-rich kids. There is very little training in the way of teaching.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have another day of teacher-training just before classes begin. Pay your adjuncts more. Lower tuition at NYU.
