    Amazing benefits but management makes it almost not worth it

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Orangeburg, NY

    Pros-Accrual of sick time and vacation in addition to getting personal time and the 12 holidays off is difficult to beat.
    -Retirement/pension plan is great.
    -Overall, it's a friendly environment.

    Cons-Lack of communication between departments is a detriment to the institution.
    -Little-to-no room for growth.
    -*Some* of the management is inflexible and unapproachable.
    -No performance reviews given.
    -Because NKI is tied to New York State, state fiscal problems are felt to some degree by NKI employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe open and transparent when it comes to directing projects.

    A lot of knowledge to be learned, Poor poor compensation

    Research Assistant (Current Employee) Orangeburg, NY

    Pros- a lot of hands-on knowledge to learn that can't be learned in the classroom or by reading
    - ability to work independently and within a group simultaneously
    - minimal micromanagement
    - adequate supervision provided

    Cons- very very low compensation for workload expectations
    - supervisor is disorganized and inefficient
    - atmosphere is closed doors, lacks vibrancy, and is typically older

    Advice to Senior ManagementNKI could be improved by higher salary and supervisor standards, and cross collaboration between lab groups in a more personal, direct manner.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    A place of tremendous advancement

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Orangeburg, NY

    ProsNKI is working on some of the most relevant, but neglected issues of our society as they relate to mental health.

    ConsYou have to deal with the bureaucracy that comes from working with a government-funded institution, and hoping that your project gets funded again.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work and do continue to trust and respect research support staff with responsibilities on your projects.
