    I have been working at NYU (New York University) full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits are great. Most of your co-workers will be decent people.

    Cons

    When you are an admin aide or in the clerical union the university does not give you raises outside what is required by the contract. They also refuse to be flexible about schedules or time off. Especially Arts & Science. STAY AWAY. A&S is an Awful HR department. When the rest of the world is trying to work with employees to make them feel appreciated and offering flexible schedules it's like they are determined to make your life harder.

    Advice to Management

    Get with it! It's 2017! People need flexibility and are humans!

    Current Employee - Academic Advisor in New York, NY

    I have been working at NYU (New York University) full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -The staff I worked with was *amazing.* Everyone was excellent at what they did.
    -The students were for the most part great to work with and root for.
    -I got lots of hands-on leadership experience and was encouraged to try new things and innovate.

    Cons

    -The caseload for advising in-and-of itself was manageable, but when balanced with a secondary responsibility (and everyone on the advising team had a second role as well), the job could definitely become more than a 40-hour a week commitment at times.
    -Due to double responsibilities (being an advisor along with being in charge of another program or center), you'd expect salaries to be higher. I felt like I should have been paid 10-15K more for the work I was doing.

    Advice to Management

    The people here are *amazing.* I can't say enough about them. Salaries should reflect actual responsibilities rather than title, however. Many of the Academic Advisors also direct other programs but do not get included in higher pay-bands they are entitled to based on the amount of work they do.
