    Vacation days and paid time off are very generous.

    As a student assistant you get tuition included, that's really the only benefit i was interested in. I know there were more, but this was the one that I was going for.

    health insurance and education is taken care off by the university. This is really a very good part of the university.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in New York, New York State

    Insurance, vacation, personal time and 401k benefits were great but the salary levels were not adequate for jobs that require a master's degree or higher.

    The best thing is that once you are a faculty, including TA in NYU, you can get a 90% discount on your health insurance.

    10% of salary (after a 5% contribution by employee) matching in a 503B retirement fund. 4+ weeks vacation. Deeply discounted undergraduate and graduate degrees for employees; some discount for family. Remote work, on occasion, depending on role.

    NYU has great benefits for FT staff, faculty and administrators (health care, vision, dental, paid time off, discounts for off campus things such as Broadway shows, movie tickets, cell phone and cable services, gym memberships, etc.). I would like to see them add a telecommuting policy for administrators since many of the systems are now cloud-based and can be accessed remotely. There is still a somewhat old school office culture at NYU in the administrative areas where "physical time in the office" = working hard; although most people are accessible and answering emails etc. even when they are not physically in the office. In addition, I would like to see an improved leave policy for new parents (i.e. longer leave after a child is born). Also a policy for employees dealing with the tough transition of coming back to work after having a newborn; especially totally new parents who have never had a newborn/child before. It would be great to have some flexibility for them; such as for the first year back from leave, working from home two days a week and coming into the office three days a week or some type of arrangement. I have seen several great female administrators eventually decide to leave NYU because of the lack of flexibility after they return to work from having a child which is unfortunate. This could differ from school to school however; but if the University as a whole had more concrete policies about this, it would help employees within the schools/depts that are more rigid.

    You have to wait 1 year until they offer 401k matching, and no vacation for the 1st 6 months

    Tuition Remission is a great benefit to offer anyone looking to advance their career and need to add a degree to their list of achievements.
