    I have been working at NYU (New York University)

    Pros

    I loved working here from the very beginning. Even from the job interview, it was like I was hanging out with a friend. There's usually something to do, but I have had time to myself to work on homework or things like that.

    Cons

    Nothing, everything here was great! I enjoyed all my time here.

    Former Employee - Teaching Assistant in New York, NY
    Former Employee - Teaching Assistant in New York, NY

    I worked at NYU (New York University)

    Pros

    I was offered a position for Teaching Assistant at the end of my first semester. My pay per hour increased from the first year to the second. It is a great place for opportunities, great people to lear from, very flexible, but is expected a good job and on time.

    Cons

    The only negative part is the total number of students you have per class. Sometimes, there is only one TA for a class of over 60 students with very long homework every week. You will be doing overtime to finish the job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great Culture and amount of opportunities

    Current Employee - Graduate Assistant in New York, NY

    I have been working at NYU (New York University)

    Pros

    Total work timings and the pay are really good
    Wide exposure
    We get to learn while we teach

    Cons

    The only Cons I could think of is probably the timings. We have to manage and adjust according to other Teaching Assistants and all the seniors get the priority leaving juniors very little choice.
