    Pros

    Okay pay/ great co-workers / room to grow with the proper title/ prestigious stepping stone in the medical field

    Cons

    Management is disrespectful and lacks leadership qualities/ fails to understand the flaws with there management teams.

    Advice to Management

    Allow for 360 reviews where the employees could review the management. This will cause the managers that lack the basic skills to lead their staff to be removed from the equation giving the facility a far better standard of care.

    Pros

    the resources from NYU's deal with Abu Dhabi are unbelievable - and there's so much money around the NYU-NYC campus it's hard to believe

    Cons

    so decentralized to be almost completely dysfunctional. No one knows how the tech campus NYU bought in Brooklyn will be integrated

    Advice to Management

    focus on getting things right as they exist presently before adding more campuses, programs, etc.

    Pros

    Flexible schedules Easy to get to work Fun people Tons of new things to learn

    Cons

    Insufferable people may be an issue. If you're not a people person then this is not the job for you. Consider the scheduling of training days in advance as they usually will coincide with other club activities

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! Absolutely keep the transparency that you guys have been upholding all these years

    Pros

    Light Speed Press has very interesting projects. Books published at Light Speed Press have been collected by New York's Museum of Modern Art.

    Cons

    Projects at Light Speed Press are often dependent on funding by arts grants. This limits the number of projects.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing what you are doing, but maybe hiring a grant writer would benefit Light Speed Press and Light Speed Pictures.

    Pros

    Great Benefits - Really great! Liberal atmosphere, with friendly co-workers. Opportunities for education, if you can make the time. Fair vacation & sick leave policy.

    Cons

    Academics can have difficult personalities with which you have to deal on a regular basis. I worked there for over a decade and never had opportunity for advancement, which I realize equally reflects upon myself.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within. Less focus on construction projects, more on employee/faculty retention.

    Pros

    Great health care, access to library, and excellent campus location. They also send out regular career advancement courses, but be aware that tuition remission does not equal free.

    Cons

    There is not a lot of room for individual compensation based on merit since you are paid by your grade. This means that you could be an excellent employee, but you are not eligible for bonuses or raise. You will also receive emails asking for donations for scholarships, which is appalling considering how much the tuition is.

    Pros

    Friendly staff and great location. I felt like I was a respected member of the team for the most part.

    Cons

    Cons are low pay, not much room for growth. My manager micromanaged more that I'd typically prefer.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your staff, offer support, be kind. Give your employees a voice, perhaps by asking for feedback more often.
