    I have been working at NYU (New York University)

    Pros

    Flexibility and student contact are major benefits of this position.

    Cons

    These roles are isolated and instructors are hired by the course and the semester. It is truly semester-by-semester employment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Longer term contracts would be helpful for everyone involved.

    I have been working at NYU (New York University) full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits and wonderful colleagues. The majority of folks who work at NYU are really wonderful people that make me proud to work there. They encourage, support, and motivate. There is plenty of work to go around, so it's really nice to have folks who are helpful and understanding with a great sense of humor.

    Cons

    There's a lot of work, which means the work-life balance can get really out of whack. Depending on your environment, work can be closer to 24-7 than 9-5 now that NYU spans the globe. Change is the name of the job there, with little warning or transparency, which can be nerve-wracking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appreciate your employees. They make you successful.

    I have been working at NYU (New York University)

    Pros

    As an English instructor, you work with very bright and creative students. It really pushes your boundaries as a writing and a teacher.

    Cons

    Some students really don't care about the work which is disappointing. Management is not as efficient as one can imagine with such a big university. However, they were always very eager to direct me to resources which could help.
