    StarStarStarStarStar Current Assistant Director, Financial Aid in New York, New York State

    The opportunity to take courses at an Ivy League school is unbeatable. CU matches 3% of your retirement contributions (for officers of administration).

  • Feb 08, 2018
    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in New York, New York State

    Reasonable health insurance and 5% 403b contribution (no match required).

  • Jan 30, 2018
    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in New York, New York State

    Paid time off is generous. 401 plan OK.

  • Feb 10, 2018
    StarStarStarStarStar Current Research Assistant in New York, New York State

    There isn't one sadly

  • Jan 10, 2018
    StarStarStarStarStar Former Management in New York, New York State

    Vacation and time off are great! You end up with more than 4 weeks a year. You pay a lot for benefits, but they are good.

  • Jan 04, 2018
    StarStarStarStarStar Current PhD Student in New York, New York State

    Best: guaranteed stipend (independent of research project status), flexible hours Worst: inconsistent rent policies, meager health insurance

  • Dec 22, 2017
    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in New York, New York State

    Best: could potentially gain another undergraduate or master's degree for a fraction of the price since you're a supporting staff member, the health benefits were pretty good Worst: Health benefits were only good for in-network unless you paid extra for out-network. It's also a medical university so it wasn't too inconvenient

  • Jan 25, 2018
    StarStarStarStarStar Current Adjunct Assistant Professor in New York, New York State

    Nothing as an adjunct member

  • Jan 03, 2018
    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in New York, New York State

    Health insurance is highly comprehensive but does not include all major NYC medical groups- including NYU.

  • Dec 14, 2017
    StarStarStarStarStar Current Accounts Payable Specialist in New York, New York State

    No good benefits for support staff employees
