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

    Pros

    Globally connected, open and diverse. The university has a well designed system of managing its resources and activities. Many of the world leading scholars work at NYU and they contribute a lot to making it a welcoming place.

    Cons

    Too many good activities and so little time to focus on research. This is not really a con per se but it is hard to resist the many tempting events taking place on campus.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing and focusing on globalizing the university. It's working.

    Pros

    Students coworkers are generally amicable. Catered food every few weeks. Given help from Facilities to to customize workspace.

    Red tape associated with any highly bureaucratic institutions. Idea for increasing team productivity, making program operations more efficient, and promoting program said "no" to 7/10 times. High turnaround of student workers stunts program development.

    To improve turnaround process for new student workers, have old train new. Give students a fair wage. Coffee and tea should be complimentary in the office.

    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!
