    Union positions become impediments to personal growth—those seeking reward and growth for outstanding performance are better looking above unionized positions.

    Pros

    Bennie are great, great staff to work with, they spend money to get you training and certifications, supervisors are attentive to the employees needs as long as it don't interfere with the mission of the dept., pretty flexible when it comes to education, theres much respect for military employees, pay is OK but definitely not exploitive, state of the art equipment, on occasion there would be free food during meetings and celebrations, and benefits extend to the immediate family.

    Cons

    Brown bag your meals because its expensive eating around here, parking is horrible but mass transit is available, promotions are not too frequent because no one wants to leave, and there is a lot of office politics.

    Advice to Management

    Open up a site across the street from my home.

    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

    Flexible employer ; Working on really good projects

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

    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.
