    I worked at NYU Langone Medical Center full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I worked as a research associate although my first title was project assistant when I started. My entire team and I got promoted after 2 years because of structural changes they made to the project, Other than being forced to "promote" us there isn't much opportunity for growth or movement as an RA in general. Overall, decent starting salary for someone who was a recent college grad and great time-off policies... although my actual supervisor preferred for us only to take off during certain times of the year.

    Cons

    The company values are strong and ultimately heading in the right direction. You get the sense of everyone working towards a common goal and they have a very team driven atmosphere. The benefits are again pretty solid and very good. The leadership tends to be a little prickly but ultimately you don't have to deal with them directly unless its at functions, etc.

    Pros

    The organization offers excellent work/life balance and great benefits. My team was extremely supportive of allowing me to pursue an advanced degree while working full time.

    Cons

    Research teams function almost as silos. While there is some opportunity to interact with members of other departments, this process is not necessarily facilitated by day to day operations. Growing within the organization is also a cumbersome process.

    I have been working at NYU Langone Medical Center full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Benefits are excellent. They also pay for your children's college tuition if they attend NYU Location is convenient. A lot of positions available. Co-workers get along well. Hours are ok.

    Cons

    Manager is clueless. Has no idea how to manage.
    Has others do all her work. Adminstration will never support the staff unless you complain to HR. Staff afraid to speak up due to being fired or retaliation. Too many meetings about the same thing. Supervisor overlooks some of the employees whom are always late to work. Also plays the blame game on others who really do work. No structure in the office. Lack of communication. Some of the Doctors have no manners, they only speak to the staff unless they need help.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Head of Dept needs a manager who really knows how to manage and stop gossiping. Needs a Leader.

    Pros

    Great place to establish professional/scientific collaborations, either within NYUMC or around NYC.

    Cons

    All about business... which might be a good thing for some people. Like anything else within NYC, it is a very expensive place to live/rent. If you are offered NYU housing, TAKE IT!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to your researchers. Facilitate housing options for employees (not everybody can live close to work).

    Pros

    This medical facility is a great organization to work for, good benefit plus union protection, friendly co-workers create a well-balanced working environment.

    Cons

    "big company frustration", different departments work individually, sometimes it is hard to get help from, needs to go through many people and different levels. Location is not so convenient, little too far away from train station, long work every day. Needs to follow union rules, not too much freedom.
