    Pros

    I loved working for this company. I got to see and sit in on meetings regarding the development of new buildings at NYU. I also got to go on multiple roofs and see the city in a way that I've never seen before

    Cons

    No cons really. I had a great time

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

    Pros

    The faculty treat you like family and if you ever have an issue, there is always a location to go or someone to talk to. The pay was perfect for the level we were at.

    Cons

    Honestly the hardest challenge was probably making sure the students were understanding everything. Everyone learns differently. But adapting to this was not very difficult.

    I worked at NYU (New York University) full-time

    Pros

    Once selected for employment, and of course as long as you keep up the work, each department is very friendly and really takes care of you when you need help.

    Cons

    As any negatives surrounding academia, there's pressure. but i wouldn't say it's a con. it's just regular workplace struggle.

  8. "Great people and environment, but too much pressure from upstairs"

    I worked at NYU (New York University) part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    NYU does their best to hire great people and it shows. Every person I have worked with here has been amazing in their own right, at their job and outside of the office doing great things. Most offices of NYU are welcoming, creative environments that foster great working relations. They do a wonderful job adjusting for student workers and making work fit with peoples outside interests, projects, and responsibilities.

    Cons

    Since NYU is a private university and claims to be an exceedingly liberal one, their message can seem a bit hypocritical at times when you see the back workings. It can be tough to balance your ideals with the ideals you are charged with portraying the university as holding.

    I worked at NYU (New York University) (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Free to schedule one on one tutoring hours on your own, just had to log it in time sheet.

    Cons

    Nothing really, more than min wage pay. Pay would increase based on seniority. Basically you can expect to make $11 as a sophmore student who is peer tutoring, but one dollar more per year thereafter.

    Advice to Management

    Great job, not raelly advice but, the job helped me out a lot.

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

    Pros

    Good benefits. Work/Life balance usually good, with little overtime.

    Cons

    No room for improvement, little recognition of the clerical staff by both NYU and the day-to-day professors. Salary does not match the NYC cost of living.

    Advice to Management

    Think out of the box. Clerks are humans, too.
