    Good place to do a neuroscience postdoc, though can't avoid the downsides of a postdoc

    Current Employee - Postdoctoral Research Fellow in New York, NY

    I have been working at NYU Langone Medical Center full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I work in neuroscience, and NYU has quickly become a top place for this field. It has a diverse mix of research, with both established giants and fantastic up-and-coming young PIs. It is a dynamic and exciting community, and New York City is generally a fantastic place for neuroscience right now.

    Cons

    NYU can't avoid the general downsides of postdoctoral positions, and everything depends pretty heavily on the laboratory PI, culture, resources, funding, etc. But postdocs know what they're getting into, so that won't come as a surprise. NYUMC does have a lot of bureaucracy. I went to a smaller, more focused school for my PhD, which had some advantages for the scientific staff. But the work/life/social culture at NYU is generally quite good amongst the researchers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fewer bureaucratic hurdles for science would make researchers feel more valued. The lack of flexibility can hinder shorter-term projects and collaborations. Lack of lab/office space is also an issue, but space is always a problem in a city like NYC.

    Wonderful Patient Care

    I worked at NYU Langone Medical Center

    Pros

    Excellent patient care and medical treatment. Great teaching hospital. Most modern technology.

    Cons

    Employee treatment is "Department dependent". Ie: radiation oncology

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Department needs complete review. Large turnover. Very cliquey.

    Pros

    Great benefits and all in all great employees who are not appreciated by management unless you toe the line

    Cons

    Lots of politics which permeate everything. There is a lot of fear of retribution that stifles people.

    Population Health: Difficult personalities

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in New York, NY

    I have been working at NYU Langone Medical Center full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Academic environment is good for work life balance, one administrator is really good and sees employees as people, pay is decent compared to other research departments at other universities, although huge discrepancy between MDs vs all others.

    Cons

    Difficult personalities leads to high turn over of good people. Division head has power issues and plays games. Terrible benefits, maternity leave is unpaid. Rumbling among female faculty that they are being paid less and no opportunity for leadership positions (overall Weird Mad Men vibe). First author a few papers, network, and move on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great researchers do not make good managers--hire professionals who can work along side division heads to manage people, projects, and information.

    Great place but very corporate

    Current Employee - Postdoctoral Fellow in New York, NY

    I have been working at NYU Langone Medical Center full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    They are very meticulous about recording everything. When you need anything, there is a paper trail to make sure you can follow up when something doesn't get done.

    Cons

    They are really bad about reimbusring you for things. You have to wait for months if you need to get reimbursed for a conference you attended.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please provide better benefits to postdoctoral fellows.

    Pros

    It is a prestigious institution to work at, you feel as though you are really contributing to patient health.

    Excellent work-life balance. Great perks (discounts on NYC entertainment).

    Cons

    There isn't a formal training process, so it takes a while to get the hang of whatever job you are hired to do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create or support employees who want to create more formal training.

    Pros

    It offers a best-practice approach to how academic healthcare operates. Funding for research is well beyond satisfactory, so if your interest is in research this is a great place to work. Friendly to workers of all ages and is a great learning environment no matter what stage of career you are at.

    Cons

    EHR/PHI transfer from department to department still needs a few kinks worked out.
