    Pros

    The vacation retirement benefits are good and the work-life balance is fairly flexible, which almost makes up for the the frustration of working here and the lower salary.

    Cons

    The salary is not great and the bureaucracy of the organization makes if it very difficult to do good work. They don't seem to value anyone but tenured faculty

    Advice to Management

    I would focus on reducing the bureaucracy and improve communication at all levels. Make all policies public and have more open lines of communication.

    Pros

    Get to learn a lot.
    Timings are flexible
    Easy to commute
    All employees were fellow students so had good understanding

    Cons

    Management had questions all the time instead of advising us on the job they were constantly in need of advice

    Advice to Management

    Get smart. You being the management should be more practical than the employees in order to guide them better.

    Flexible employer ; Working on really good projects

    Mediocre Salary.No more cons actually. Dont expect much for being a student.

    Research Assistants in other reputed schools make quite more money. It would be good if that could happen at NYU.

    Pros

    Competitive salary with nice benefits such as health insurance, paid bonding leave for new children, pre-tax metrocard purchasing, and tuition remission.

    Cons

    It's a big university and it would be easy to feel like a number. This depends on the department you work in of course. Sometimes, it can be difficult to get your foot in the door here, but that also means that once you do, internally moving up or across to other jobs is easier which is nice for mobility.
